Burney, Fanny

A Busy Day
$13.00

From back cover: "This play, a romance and comedy of errors, is replete with lively dialogue and close observations of the follies and foibles of her characters and the social classes to which they belong. A Busy Day, like Burney's fiction, looks back to the eighteenth-century novel, with its stock characters, and forward to the social concerns and observant heroines of nineteenth-century fiction. Although written in 1800, A Busy Day has not been published previously. Tara Ghoshal Wallace provides the first reliable edition of the play and places it in its historical and ciritcal framework." Rutgers UP, New Brunswick: 1984. Paper, 148 pgs. USED. $13.000-8135-1048-1
