Most widely held works by George Farquhar
The beaux' stratagem by George Farquhar( Book )

291 editions published between 1707 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Beaux' Stratagem' has been praised for the range, depth and naturalism of its characters: at a time when most comedies were written in, for and about London, Farquhar leaves behind the tendency to portray country folk as uncouth and laughable rustics. In addition, the play has been seen as broaching the gap between the sharp wit of Restoration comedy and its plots full of rakes and rascals, and the more genteel, sentimental comedy of the eighteenth century, whose focus falls not on sexual one-upmanship but on the realities of marital discord
The recruiting officer by George Farquhar( Book )

120 editions published between 1792 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
