  Gilbert \Gilbert\ prop. n.
     William Schwenk Gilbert, an English dramatist born at London
     Nov. 18, 1836. He is most famous for his collaborations with
     Sir Arthur Sullivan on a number of humorous light operas
     which are known as "Gilbert and Sullivan Operas". His first
     play was "Dulcamara" (1866). He also wrote "The Palace of
     Truth" (1870), "Pygmalion and Galatea" (1871), "Sweethearts"
     (1874), "Engaged" (1877), "The Mountebanks" (1891), and in
     collaboration with Sir A. Sullivan (who wrote the music), he
     wrote "The Sorcerer" (1877), "H. M. S. Pinafore" (1878), "The
     Pirates of Penzance" (1879), "Patience" (1881), "Iolanthe"
     (1883), "The Mikado" (1885), "Ruddygore" (1887), "The Yeomen
     of the Guard" (1888), "The Gondoliers" (1889), and "Utopia,
     limited" (1893). The light operas proved very popular and
     continue to be performed over one hundred years later. He
