The Ethos of Restoration Comedy.

SKU: 16417

Perhaps the first modern book to defend the idea that Restoration Comedy did, indeed, teach moral lessons as does all art, in spite of the lewdness of those plays that so shocked the Victorian era. Courage, liberality, plain-dealing, love vs. self-love, and generosity are given full treatment.VG condition. University of Illinois Press. 1971. Hb, Dj. USED. $10.00
