The Inconstant

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

Subtitled "The Way to Win Him:, this play is placed in Paris - a change from many others of Farquhar's plays which used English settings - though still presented to the same English audience. "This comedy ... had a reception, on the first night of its appearance, far inferior to that of his other productions. It was, with difficulty, saved from condemnation; and the author ... boldly charged some secret enemies with having attempted its destruction." (I can sympathize with the author; I think this play is as complex and funny as all his rest. - thw) - Summary by ToddHW and Mrs Inchbald, a critic of the 1800s
