Abstract
 
Description
The aim of this volume is to offer a selection of long-established and well-loved classics which provide examples of the wide range and quality of English comedy in the 17th and 18th centuries. From the height of 17th century drama comes Ben Jonson's "Volpone", a biting satire on human cupidity; while the urbane social comedy of the restoration is represented by Congreve's "The Way of the World", where manners and attitudes provide the comedy and style and elegance adorn the language. Finally, from the glittering age of the 18th century come plays from Sheridan and Goldsmith, the two rumbustious comedies, "The School For Scandal" and "She Stoops to Conquer". - from Amzon
