The School for Scandal: Dover Thrift Editions

Autor Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Dover Thrift Editions
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 1991 – vârsta de la 14 ani
The intrigues of such aptly named characters as Lady Sneerwell, Sir Joseph Surface, Lady Candour, and Sir Benjamin Backbite have amused theater audiences for more than two centuries. They are the invention of the Irish-born playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan, and they unfold, collide, and backfire hilariously in his masterpiece, "The School for Scandal, " a play still considered by many the best comedy of manners in English.
It is a comedy with two plots, one involving Sir Oliver Surface's attempts to discover the worthier of his two nephews, and the other unleashing Lady Sneerwell's strategies to ensnare both nephews and the hapless Lady Teazle in her designs. Both plots converge brilliantly in the screen scene -- one of the most famous in all of theater.
"The School for Scandal "reveals not only Sheridan's mastery of the mechanics of stage comedy, but also his flair for witty dialogue and obvious delight in skewering the affectation and pretentiousness of aristocratic Londoners of the 1770s. Its evergreen appeal makes it one of the most produced of all theater classics today, and one of the most delightful to read."

Descriere

Often called the best comedy of manners in English, and one of the most produced of all theater classics, this delightful play displays Sheridan's mastery of the mechanics of stage comedy, his flair for witty dialogue, and his delight in skewering the affectation and pretentiousness of aristocratic Londoners of the 1770s.
