Works of John Dryden, Volume XIV (WORKS OF JOHN DRYDEN)
- Plays; The Kind Keeper, The Spanish Fryar, The Duke of Guise, and The Vindication
Beskrivelse: Kept women, comic clerics, and political schemers enliven the four plays in this volume of the California Dryden. Dryden asserted that The Kind Keeper was a moral play, dedicated to exposing the 'crying sin' of keeping a mistress. The production was closed after three nights, but whether because of the play's success in moralizing, or in exposing, is hard to know.
