This is the first ever edition of the complete plays of Frances Burney (1752-1840) and is taken from the original manuscripts of her work. The edition includes a substantial general introduction, headnotes to each play, explanatory notes and variant readings. This edition reveals Burney in a hitherto little-known role as a comic and tragic dramatist, and provides many new insights into her overall achievement.
