About the Story

Way of the World, The

William Congreve is considered the greatest English writer of Restoration comedy. Though his plays were generally well received by critics and audiences alike, Congreve was bitterly disappointed by the poor response in 1700 to his final play, The Way of the World, which is now considered his greatest work and a dramatic masterpiece. Congreve died, January 19, 1729, and is buried in Westminster Abbey.
