Southerne is one of the most important dramatists of the Restoration theatre, but until now there has been no modern edition of his works. The text is based on an exhaustive study of the earliest editions, and the introduction contains the first biography of Southerne to be based on the surviving documentary records.

`tactfully edited and handsomely produced' David Nokes, Times Literary Supplement
'a very good edition, particularly useful for its biography of Southerne and the excellent explanatory notes ... the text makes for extremely enjoyable reading' Brean S. Hammond, University of Liverpool, Review of English Studies
'two handsome volumes ... Jordan and Love give a renewed perception of how closely Southerne worked with, and wrote for, his actors.' Patrick O'Sullivan, University of Bradford, British Journal of Eighteenth Century Studies
'this edition of Southerne promises to be very fruitful, and should do much to assist more accurate work in an area of literary history still plagued with anachronism and approximation' David Womersley, Jesus College, Oxford, Notes and Queries
