This is the first systematic attempt to establish Sheridan as a major figure in the history of English comedy. Leading scholars address Sheridan's role not only as an outstanding playwright, but also as the manager of Drury Lane Theatre, and his subsequent career in politics. This volume undertakes an important reevaluation of Sheridan's achievements as a master of rhetoric in both the theatrical and political worlds, and provides a much needed contemporary assessment of his importance in the history of comedy.
