"Although I have known this play for many years, J.P. Wearing's introduction sheds new light on many interesting aspects of the piece, which I look forward to teaching afresh with the benefit of this text. The footnotes and the supplementary material all help in understanding the play, placing it in the social and legal context of its day. Not that it is a mere period piece; Pinero's skill as a playwright is impressive, and one hopes that this edition will encourage new productions." - Richard Foulkes, University of Leicester"A century and more after the fact, A.W. Pinero’s most penetrating play, The Second Mrs. Tanqueray, has now been given a full-dress evaluative and contextual editorial treatment that does complete justice to its subject. J.P. Wearing, editor of Pinero’s letters, has brought his finely honed scholarly skills and broad knowledge of English theatre and culture to the task of presenting the single most authoritative text of Pinero’s play in existence and surrounding it with several sets of informative critical, social, and cultural writing, along with a comprehensive introduction, chronology, and bibliography. An immense amount of research lies behind this enterprise, and a great range of potential readers, from undergraduate and graduate students to historians and critics, will be the beneficiaries." - Joseph Donohue, Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

  • By Guest on 14 September 2016

    This edition has neither line nor page numbers, which makes it exasperating to use in an academic capacity. There are no notes, and no critical introduction - both of which were promised by the product description. Don't buy it.

  • By Mr. Alex Taylor on 6 February 2012

    There are one or two other editions of The Second Mrs Tanqueray available. This was the edition I found the most useful. It is served with an excellent critical preface and the layout of the text is excellent.
