Delphi Complete Plays of William Wycherley (Illustrated)

pubblicato da Delphi Classics Ltd

Prezzo online:
1,99

The late seventeenth century playwright William Wycherley produced satirical and comic masterpieces, winning the admiration of his fellow writers, including John Dryden and William Congreve, who described him as "appointed to lash this crying age." Following the restoration of Charles II, dramatists experienced new freedom in an age that broke from the strict morality of puritan rule and in which elegance and wit became the most prized of virtues. Irreverent, cynical and licentious, Wycherley's works illuminate the many vices of these colourful times, satirising the widening disparity between appearances and reality. This comprehensive eBook presents Wycherley's complete plays, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
