Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Readers seeking a first introduction to the classic texts of English literature will welcome these short, pocket-sized collections. Each book in the series contains a selection of the most significant poetry or drama from a particular period. Traditional favourites are placed alongside less well-known titles, reflecting the ways in which the literary canon has changed in recent years. A succinct introduction to each volume gives readers a sense of how literature developed during the period in question.

These concise volumes are designed for general readers wishing to extend their cultural horizons and literary knowledge.

Featuring plays by Wycherley and Congreve, RESTORATION COMEDY gives readers a flavour on the bawdy and satirical comedies performed in the sophisticated theatres of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
