Cato : a tragedy, and selected essays by Joseph Addison( Book )

1 edition published in 1779 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First staged in 1713, Joseph Addison's Cato: A Tragedy inspired many in the eighteenth century with its portrayal of Roman senator Cato the Younger's (95-46 B.C.) willingness to take his own life rather than to submit to the tyrannical rule of Julius Caesar. Set in North Africa, the play depicts the final hours of Cato's resistance to Caesar. George Washington found Cato such a powerful statement of liberty, honor, virtue, and patriotism that he had it performed for his men in Valley Forge during the American Revolution." "Despite Cato's enormous success, Addison was perhaps best known as an essayist. This volume brings together Addison's dramatic masterpiece along with a selection of his essays that are directly related to the play and that develop its key themes."--Jacket

Sir John Falstaff has very little money upon his arrival in Windsor, and sets out to court two wealthy wives in the hopes of fattening his coin purse. The two clever wives⁰́₄Mistress Page and Mistress Ford⁰́₄discover Falstaff's plot, but instead of rejecting him, set out to have some fun at his expense.Known as "The Bard of Avon," William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare's works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare's innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
