This study offers a detailed examination of these three comedies against their Restoration background. Special attention is given to Geremy Collier's attacks on the Restoration dramatists, charging them with immorality, as well as to the dramatists' replies to these charges. The texts of the plays reveal many facets of Restoration life and particular attention is paid to the concept of the marriage market.
