Restoration Drama - An Anthology edited by David Womersley

£13.99

Product description

This new anthology provides seventeen key plays by twelve dramatists of the Restoration period in an anthology designed specifically for course use, with annotations and judiciously modernized texts. It offers a representative sampling of the types of play of the period, including plays by both men and women - sex comedy, moral comedy, heroic drama, Shakespearean adaptation and political history. This exciting new anthology captures the variety and richness of Restoration Drama. It provides annotated and judiciously modernized texts of the following plays: Tuke, The Adventures of Five Hours.(1662); Howard, The Duke of Lerma. (1668); Dryden, The Conquest of Granada. (1670); Buckingham, The Rehearsal. (1671); Wycherley, The Country Wife. (1675); Wycherley, The Plain Dealer. (1676); Etherege, The Man of Mode. (1676); Behn, The Rover. (1677);Dryden, All for Love. (1677); Lee, Lucius Junicus Brutus. (1680); Otway,Venice Preserved. (1682); Congreve, Love for Love. (1695); Cibber,Love's Last Shift. (1696); Vanburgh, The Relapse. (1696); Congreve,The Way of the World. (1700); Farquhar, The Recruiting Officer.(1706); Farquhar, The Beaux Stratagem. (1707); Centlivre, The BusieBody. (1709) The volume offers a representative sampling of many of the different types of play put on in the period (sex comedy, moral comedy, heroic drama, Shakespearean adaptation and political history) At the same time, the even distribution of the plays throughout the period encourages students to reflect on the development of the drama over the full fifty years covered by the anthology. It includes plays by both men and women, as well as dramatic ripostes such as The Rehearsal and The Relapse, which evoke so vividly the adversarial and dialectical world of the theater in the second half of the seventeenth century. There are some creases on the front cove.
