Description - Four Georgian and Pre-Revolutionary Plays by Eduardo Viegas
These plays offer an introduction to the theatre of the late- 18th century in England, France and Germany, as it brings together key texts revolving around the themes of sex and class. The texts of the plays by Sheridan and Goldsmith are based on first editions, while those of the plays by Beaumarchais and Lessing are based on the earliest published translations. Textual notes explain unfamiliar terms and allusions. An introduction locates the plays in their cultural and political context and provides a comparative overview of contemporary theatre.
