This new edition- the fullest one-volume collection ever issued in English – contains all Alfred de Musset’s best known, most frequently acted and most widely studied plays, including Lorenzaccio, On ne badine pas avec l’amour, Fantasio, Un Caprice, and eight others. It is the first unabridged translation in contemporary English, the first to be made from reliable texts, the first to be thoroughly annotated, and the first to present the important variant readings from Musset’s manuscripts and printed editions. It is thus a standard reference work for students, an up-to-date acting text for performers, and a lively introduction to one of the world’s great playwrights.
