From the back cover:
Restoration Comedy reflects the age it grew up in, an age so preoccupied with rules of polite behavior that it even had rules for the polite breaking of rules. Here are four great plays, comedies peopled with gallants and cuckolds, coquettes and fading beauties, wits and gulls--all pitted against each other in intricately delicate schemes in a society where the only recognized sin was the sin of dullness.
