"Occasionally a book comes to hand that is so satisfactory that one would not change it in the slightest detail. Miss Lynch''s edition of the greatest of all Restoration comedies of manners in such a book. . . . A model for 20th-century editors."-Choice
From the Back Cover
First performed in 1700, The Way Of The World has since earned a reputation as a play for connoisseurs, a satire whose every word pricks or scratches. Its portrayal of the petty intrigues and duplicity of genteel society spares neither coquette nor rascal.See all Product Description

the plot is too complicated to explain, id be writing pages. but it is amazingly funny, witty and holds a mirror up to the failings of restoration society. it challenges the position of women in society, and criticises marriage, money and the worlds obsession with youth. A complete masterpiece. buy it now, THEN stage it, THEN give it to other people to read, THEN they will stage it, and it will get the credit it deserves, as one of the greatest plays of its generation and one of the highest points in past english literature and drama.

This is a set book for my son's A level course. Arrived a little later than expected, however, which was disappointing.Published on 4 Aug. 2013 by K.B.
