Complete Plays of Frances Burney

(1995)
A collection of stories by

 
 
In the plays, as in her novels, Burney satirizes the social conventions and pretensions of her day. The Witlings (1779), her first play, is a biting satire on the Bluestockings; it was never performed, however, for fear of a possible scandal. The violent, the grotesque, and the macabre also figure strongly in her writings. Contents Volume 1: The Comedies Introduction Chronology The Witlings (1778-80) Love and Fashion (1798-99) A Busy Day (1800-02) The Woman-Hater (1800-02) Volume 2: The Tragedies Edwy and Elgiva (1788-95) Hubert de Vere (1790-97) The Siege of Pevensey (1790-91) Elberta (1791-1814) Appendix: The Triumphant Toadeater (1798)
