Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0838752438, Hardcover)

This work argues that examinations of the didactic component of Restoration drama have been hindered by several faulty assumptions: first, that there is some widely accepted ethical belief system in the period; second, that sexual behavior is the central test case for ethical obligation in the comedy; and finally, that ethical systems are not in themselves complex.
