Läs i vår app för iPhone, iPad och AndroidCombined in this volume are three of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's most loved works. "e;The School for Scandal"e; is Sheridan's classic comedy that pokes fun at London upper class society in the late 1700s. Often referred to as a "e;comedy of manners"e;, "e;The School for Scandal"e; is one Sheridan's most performed plays and a classic of English comedic drama. "e;The Rivals"e; was Sheridan's first play and while at first it was not well received it would go on to prove to be a great success and establish Sheridan as a major talent. "e;The Rivals"e; satirizes the pretentiousness of English society in the late 18th century. As witty and accessible today as when it was first written, "e;The Rivals"e; sparkles with the humor that Sheridan and his writing are known for. In "e;The Critic"e; Sheridan turns his attention to satirize the theatre and all the people engaged in the business of it in late 18th century England. The critic of the story is a man by the name of Mr. Dangle and the play that is the subject of criticism is a horribly written production named "e;The Spanish Armada"e;. Fans of Sheridan will delight in this lesser known work. Together these works make a great introduction to the works of Richard Brinsley Sheridan.
