"Intrigue and deception abound in The Way of the World, as Mirabell must overcome the hatred of Lady Wishfort if he is to marry her niece with fortune intact. Congreve's first play, The Old Bachelor, depicts the chaos caused by the rakish Bellmour, who poses as a parson in order to pursue his mistress. In The Double Dealer, the schemes of Maskwell threaten the marriage of Mellefont and Cynthia, while in Love for Love the extravagant Valentine is forced to choose between his inheritance and his beloved Angelica."--Back cover.
