The Way of the World is widely regarded as one of the best Restoration comedies and is still occasionally performed. It is an ideal choice to get a better understanding of the humourous and satirical style of William Congreve.

《如此世道》写上流社会一对有才华的青年男女相爱成婚的故事。康格里夫并不采取直接说教的方式来教育观众,而是通过复杂的故事情节,塑造才华横溢的青年男女,并以高度机智、幽默的对话来达到他推崇严肃的道德。

The Way of the World is a play written by English playwright William Congreve. It premiered in 1700 in the theatre in Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London. The play is based around the two lovers, Mirabell and Millaman, describing their efforts to get married through complicated plots and structure.

威廉·康格里夫(1670-1729年),英国剧作家。他是风尚喜剧复兴运动中最卓越的作者。他的喜剧以活泼生动和对话高雅为特色,对角色(特别是一些次要人物)的刻画细致入微且多彩多姿。他的情节主要围绕错综复杂和令人反感的风流韵事展开,真实性不强,构思不够巧妙。《为爱而爱》(1695年)以及《如此世道》(1700年)是他最有名的戏剧。《悲伤的新娘》(1698年)是他唯一的悲剧。

William Congreve (24 January 1670 – 19 January 1729) was an English playwright and poet.He wrote some of the most popular English plays of the Restoration period of the late 17th century. By the age of thirty, he had written four comedies, including Love for Love (premiered 30 April 1695) and The Way of the World (premiered 1700), and one tragedy, The Mourning Bride (1698).

My Lord,—Whether the world will arraign me of vanity or not, that I have presumed to dedicate this comedy to your lordship, I am yet in doubt; though, it may be, it is some degree of vanity even to doubt of it. One who has at any time had the honour of your lordship's conversation, cannot be supposed to think very meanly of that which he would prefer to your perusal. Yet it were to incur the imputation of too much sufficiency to pretend to such a merit as might abide the test of your lordship's censure.
