Most widely held works by George Farquhar
The recruiting officer by George Farquhar( Book )

118 editions published between 1764 and 2016 in English and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition sheds light on Farquhar's work, highlighting its status as an account of army corruption and sexual intrigue, and its relevance to later literature such as Brecht's 'Trumpets and Drums', Keneally's 'The Playmaker' and Wertenbaker's 'Our Country's Good'
The beaux' stratagem by George Farquhar( Book )

111 editions published between 1788 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Beaux' Stratagem' has been praised for the range, depth and naturalism of its characters: at a time when most comedies were written in, for and about London, Farquhar leaves behind the tendency to portray country folk as uncouth and laughable rustics. In addition, the play has been seen as broaching the gap between the sharp wit of Restoration comedy and its plots full of rakes and rascals, and the more genteel, sentimental comedy of the eighteenth century, whose focus falls not on sexual one-upmanship but on the realities of marital discord
