What were the causes of Restoration drama's licentiousness? How did the elegantly-turned comedy of Congreve become the pointed satire of Fielding? And how did Sheridan and Goldsmith reshape the materials they inherited? Richard Bevis argues that none of these questions can be answered without an understanding of Augustan and Georgian history.
