Born Thomas Brinsley Sheridan) Irish playwright, librettist, and poet. The following entry presents recent criticism of Sheridan's works. The initial performance of his first play, The Rivals, failed because of miscasting and the play's excessive length. In his comic drama The Rivals Sheridan satirizes manners using humor that is pointed but never cruel. Essentially an ironic play about character, The Rivals presents a number of absurd individuals and then proceeds to ridicule their flaws and idiosyncrasies.

Wealthy, fashionable people went there to "take the waters", which were believed to have healing properties. The plot centres on the two young lovers, Lydia and Jack. Lydia, who reads a lot of popular novels of the time, wants a purely romantic love affair. To court her, Jack pretends to be "Ensign Beverley", a poor officer

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.

Such a funny play, old but delicious. Book is in great shape.

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.

Ordered this book for a college english class. Shipped fast and was a great deal, why order a new book when there are used ones in great condition!

If you've ever wondered what an 18th century sit-com would have been like, you have only to read The Rivals. The dialogue and clever use of language is an absolute delight.

Hilarious perfection!
Going to the play? Going to be in the play? You got to read the play.
