Southerne, Thomas, Jordan, Robert J., Love, Harold
This two-volume collection--based on an exhaustive study of the earliest editions--brings together Southerne's ten plays and the small surviving body of non-dramatic writing. Along with his two well-known tragedies, The Fatal Marriage and Oroonoko, these volumes also include three outstanding comedies, Sir Anthony Love, The Wives' Excuse, and The Maid's Last Prayer, which have been praised in recent studies of Restoration drama for their wit, psychological realism, and adventurous stagecraft. The introduction contains the first biography of Southerne based on a comprehensive study of the surviving documentary records, and the editors have incorporated generous notes clarifying the many contemporary allusions and relating Southerne's work to its sources and models.Southerne, Thomas is the author of 'The Works of Thomas Southerne: Volume I (Oxford English Texts)', published 1988 under ISBN 9780198118596 and ISBN 0198118597.
