(This edited collection contains William Wycherley, The Country Wife, Aphra Behn, The Rover, and William Congreve, The Way of the World.)- Edward Bond, Restoration [ISBN: 978-0-7136-8330-1]Other critical editions of these plays are acceptable, too, if you are already in possession of a copy of one of the plays (no translations, though!). But if you are buying, please purchase the editions listed above and do so with Facultas. I'm sure you appreciate having a bookshop on Campus, even if you cannot be there yourselves at the moment. Like all stores, it suffered as a result of the covid-pandemic. And if we want it to survive the crisis, we have to support it.Texts on Moodle:- Aphra Behn, The Luckey ChanceAll secondary reading, that is, critical texts on the plays to be discussed and their cultural/political/historical/social contexts will be made available at the beginning of term as pdf files on Moodle.Preparatory background reading:- "Introduction: The Restoration" in: Griffiths/Trussler, Restoration Comedy, Nick Hern Books: London, (2018), p. vii-li.
