Three of the most popular Restoration comedies in one volume, all dealing with the place of women in society.

This volume contains:

The Rover by Aphra Behn – the classic Restoration comedy by the first English female playwright.

The Way of the World by William Congreve – a brilliant comedy of manners, complete with dashing suitor, rich heiress and vengeful aunt.

The Country Wife by William Wycherley – a supremely bawdy comedy in which the aptly named Horner pretends to be a eunuch in order to seduce women under the noses of their husbands.

The volume also includes an extensive introduction, biographical notes, key dates, a glossary and suggestions for further reading.

Edited and introduced by Trevor Griffiths and Simon Trussler.
