William Congreve’s The Way of the World: A Drama Script

The Way of the World is a Restoration comedy play written by William Congreve and was first performed in 1700. It is a witty and satirical play that explores the relationships and power struggles between members of the English upper class. The plot centres around the efforts of Mirabell, a clever gentleman, to win the hand of Millamant, a wealthy and independent woman, despite the objections of her guardians. Along the way, Mirabell navigates the complex and scheming world of the aristocracy, making use of both wit and cunning to achieve his goals.
