Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little PriceLydia Languish, a young woman from a good family, holds on to an impossible romantic ideal of love, and resolves only to marry a pauper.

So Jack Absolute pretends to be a poor soldier in order to win her hand.

Meanwhile, Jack's father is attempting to procure the match through the proper channel of Lydia's guardian, and Jack becomes a rival to himself, before he is finally challenged to duels by rival suitors in both his identities... The Rivals is a set text for AQA GCSE English Language and Literature and EdExcel A/AS Level English Literature. Edited and introduced by Colin Counsell.
