    "Perhaps the most important use of money - It saves time. Life is so short, and there's so much to do, one can't afford to waste a minute; and just think how much you waste, for instance, in walking from place to place instead of going by bus and in going by bus instead of by taxi."

    Book Description

    "Marriage a-la-Mode" was an early and influential comedy of manners, later to be developed by Etherege and Wycherly. During the play Dryden deploys verbal and theatrical wit which is in experimental contrast to a loftier vein of poetic tragi-comedy. With its unusual combination of two plots, this play affords a complex exploration of the language of social exchange and personal feeling between typically well-born men and women of the late 17th-century English world.
