Description

The Relapse * The Provoked Wife * The Confederacy * A Journey to London * The Country House These five comedies on the theme of marital disharmony by the foremost Restoration playwright John Vanbrugh (1664-1726) are published in the Oxford English Drama series. The texts are freshly edited using modern spelling. There is a critical introduction, wide-ranging annotation, and an informative bibliography which together illuminate the plays' cultural context and theatrical potential for reader and performer alike. 'The series should reshape the canon in a number of significant areas. A splendid and imaginative project.' Professor Anne Barton, Cambridge Universityshow more
