Richard Brinsley Sheridan was an Irish-born playwright and poet and long-term owner of the London Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. For thirty-two years he was.

But Sheridan's shortcomings as a speller have been exaggerated.

In his Prefatory Notes (xxxvii), Mr. Rae writes: "The manuscript of it in Sheridan's own handwriting is preserved at Frampton Court and is now printed in this volume. But Sheridan's shortcomings as a speller have been exaggerated.

Richard Brinsley Sheridan (30 October 1751 – 7 July 1816) was a playwright and poet and long-term owner of the London Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. For thirty-two years, he was also a Member of Parliamen. t aligned with the British Whig Party. Such was the esteem he was held in by his contemporaries when he died that he was buried at Westminister Abbey. Sheridan was born in 1751 in Dublin, Ireland, where his family had a house on then-fashionable Dorset Street. He was a pupil at Harrow Boarding School outside London from 1762 to 1768

Sheridan's wit was legendary. When the Drury Lane theatre which he owned burned down, he sat in a coffee house opposite, watching the blaze. Why wasn't he distraught at the sight of his entire worldly wealth going up in smoke, asked a bemused onlooker.

Sheridan's wit was legendary. May not a man enjoy a quiet drink by his own fireside?" Sheridan replied.

The School for Scandal is a comedy of manners written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. It was first performed in London at Drury Lane Theatre on 8 May 1777. Scene I: Lady Sneerwell, a wealthy young widow, and her hireling Snake discuss her various scandal-spreading plots

Sheridan's most successful play, often considered the apex of English comedy.

Sheridan's 1777 farcical treatment of upper class snobbery and reputation ruination sparkles even two centuries later--whether on the boards or on the pages. Delightfully irreverent this five-act play entertains despite its period setting, for costumes, accessories and expressions can not detract from the basic functioning and foibles of human nature. The Dover Thrift edition includes A PORTRAIT (flattering poem addressed to a possible patroness), a PROLOGUE written by Garrick, an acclaimed actor-manger, and an EPILOGUE written by Mr. Colman. Yet the actual dialogue stands alone, in never-ending waves of wit and satire.

Offering an extensive cast these 75 pages reveal the worst of Sheridan's 18th century Society; the last names alone indicate shamelessly
the predominant character flaws among the self-centered cheats, flatterers and hypocrites: Mrs. Sneerwell, the Surface brothers, Lady Teazle, and Mrs. Candour among others. Literary gimmicks include
mistaken identities, overhead conversations and outrageous distortion of the facts which precipitates shocking rumors. No one's reputation is safe, while some characters delight in spouting Sentiments--moralizing platitudes.

The machinations of this cast of zanies who take themselves most seriously--whether motivated by love or money--provide amusing fodder
for those who appreciate Comedy raised to the heights of an art form. Audiences and readers alike will experience the entire gamut of humor in this slender volume, for bon mots are interspersed among the devious plottings and dastardly scheming of the various characters--often at direct odds with each other. Lessons of Life and morality can be learned (possibly by lack of proper example) if one enrolls in this entertaining School for Scandal.

My review is not on the content of the play, but on this particular edition of the play.

I know everyone has their own reading style, so this may not bother everyone. However, when I'm reading an older piece of literature, I enjoy looking at footnotes. I'm sure that some skip over them, but I do not. In this edition, however, the footnotes were there, but there were no indications in the text to let me know when to look at the footnotes. The only indication was the line number, which was written right before each footnote. This was irritating to me, and so I went through the whole play ahead of time and marked the parts where I had to look for footnotes, which was very time consuming.

I would definitely recommend reading the play, because it is very funny and there are a number of interesting literary devices going on that I won't go into here, but I would not recommend this particular edition (New Mermaids).

Bought this to read as preparation to seeing as a performance. A most enjoyable play: not really profound, but a lot of fun.

A nice read.

What's not to like about The Rivals? Mrs. Malaprop is a true classic. I reread the play periodically; references naturally arise in conversation--it is perennially entertaining.
A classic!
