Excerpt from The Drama, Vol. 22: Classic Curiosities of Dramatic LiteratureAlsatia of hunted casuistry; - is broken up and disfranchised. We bark like foolish dogs at shadows. We dread infection from the scenic representation of disorder: and fear a painted pustule. In our anxiety that our moral ity should not take cold we wrap it up in a great blanket surtout of precaution against the breeze and sunshine. It was in truth the breezy dialogue, the sunshiny wit and humor, that gave this artificial comedy its great vogue, and no collection can fairly be called representa tive which fails to include some specimens of the Restoration drama. The Lamas/tire Wades of Shadwell and T be Beaux - Stmtegem of Far quhar, both to be found in this volume, are among the best comedies in their class; nor will the moral tone of even these purely artificial pro ductions of the comic stage be found to be less elevated than that of the society of the period as shown in the authentic memoirs of the times.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
