9780198123422: The Works of George Farquhar: Volume II (|c OET |t Oxford English Texts)

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 less than thirty. Shirley Strum Kenny has provided the first scholarly edition of the works since 1730; she has added to the canon materials not printed since the beginning of the 18th century, some of which have never been identified as Farquhar's. Each work is accompanied by an introduction.

About the Author:

Shirley Strum Kenny is at City University of New York.

Review:

'this is a highly satisfactory edition ... And with its appearance, we can hope for some overdue reassessment of Farquhar. Farquhar is a more important and varied writer than anthologies reveal, and this edition represents scholarship of a high order. It will remain a much-used and valued tool long after the six trendy critical monographs you might buy instead have lapsed into datedness and desuetude. Unfashionable as such scholarly monuments have become, we should be grateful to Shirley Kenny for her years of editorial labour and to OUP for continuing to make such editions available.' Robert D. Hume, The Pennsylvania State University. Philological Quarterly

'impressive edition ... Professor Kenny has provided a critical edition of Farquhar ... incomparably the best edition in which to read Farquhar' D.J. Womersley, Jesus College, Oxford, Notes and Queries

'Each of the pieces has an introduction which discusses sources, composition, and publication, together with a thorough stage history. The explanatory notes are substantial, and there is a full index. All this richly detailed information is compactly presented and will be invaluable to students of Farquhar and his theatre ... a substantial achievement for which one is grateful.' Paul Hammond, University of Leeds, Review of English Studies, Vol XLI No 163 Aug '90

`a significant addition to the growing volume of scholarship dealing with the theater of the Restoration and eighteenth century. The first scholarly edition of Farquhar's works since Stonehill's 1930 edition...Kenny has made appropraite use of the rich harvest of new material on theatrical history in recent decades...Kenny's introductions and commentaries, together with the texts of the works themselves, present a rich and varied picture of farquhar's entire theatrical and literary career...For serious students of eighteenth-century drama, Kenny's editin provides the best possible introduction to Farquhar's works and the theatrical milieu to which he and his drama belong. seasoned scholars will also appreciate the intellectual integrity apparent in every facet of the work. Even visually, the edition is a delight. The printing is exceptionally clear and sufficiently large and well-spaced to attract rather than repel the reader.' A Current Bibliography ns 14 V1:316
