Overview

George Farquhar (1678-1707) was perhaps the best, and certainly the most popular, playwright to appear at the turn of the 18th century. He captivated audiences with his lively good-natured comedies, and romanced the leading actresses and female playwrights. In addition to his eight plays, he wrote many poems, letters, an epic, and a miscellany—all before his untimely death at age twenty-nine. Shirley Strum Kenny has provided the first scholarly edition of the works since 1730 adding to the canon materials not printed since the beginning of the 18th century including some that have never been identified as Farquhar's. Each work is accompanied by an introduction.
