The Country Wifeby William Wycherley
"The Country Wife is shown to surpass much Restoration comedy in structural and thematic unity by counterpointing the principals' attitudes on sex and marriage. Although the plot is episodic and portrays multiple sets of lovers, Wycherley succeeds in evolving a 'clear dramatic line.'" -Seventeenth-Century News
