Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection by renowned French playwright Marivaux includes three comedies written between 1723 and 1732: Changes of Heart (The Double Constancy), The Game of Love and Chance, and The Triumph of Love. Marivaux, a follower of Comedie Italienne, used stock characters, often in false identity and impersonation. His theme in all three plays, which reflect his stand for class and gender equality, is the search for love in the game of courtship. These translations and adaptations by Wadsworth, a longtime opera director, are distinguished from earlier efforts by the fluid style and acting instructions. Background materials include an introduction by Wadsworth; "The France of Marivaux," by Christian Pevitt; "Marivaux on Stage and Page," a conversation between Wadsworth and Janice Paran, the director of three premiers at McCarter Theatre, Princeton, NJ; and 40 plates of photos from these productions. Recommended for all public and academic libraries.--Ming-ming Shen Kuo, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
