Sample text

Although Sheridan has supplied Lady Teazle with lines enough to create a complete character, a great deal must still depend on the way this part is played, especially in the screen scene. The first problem of interpretation is this: Is Lady Teazle moving toward succumbing to Joseph's blandishments? Can she be taking seriously his paradoxical argument that ladies who slip slightly have the best reputations? And if she is shown as moving toward surrender, is she then convinced? Or is she actually aware that the argument is specious but is accepting it because the idea of an adventure with a sophisticated young man fascinates her?

The plot demands that he be shrewd enough to see through Joseph and that he have human vanity enough to be pleased that Charles does not sell his picture. Such a man, we might suppose, was Teazle before he made the mistake of marrying a young wife. TRIP Servants play a far more important role in The Rivals than in this play. Trip conforms to the pattern established by Fag: He plays the fop and is a burlesque exaggeration of his master's vices. He too is in debt and is trying to borrow money. ROWLEY He needs no comment.

Com out of hiding to accuse Charles of perfidy. " Commentary The scene, like many another final scene of a play, is huddled. Lady Sneerwell and Joseph Surface's last attempt to plot is a weak effort from such accomplished intriguers. It is difficult to see any logical reason for Lady Teazle to appear in Joseph's house. The culmination of the love of Charles and Maria is handled as if Sheridan wants to get the matter over with. It is perhaps worth mentioning that in the original Slanderers, there was a scene in the middle of the play where Rowley forced Snake (then, Spatter) to confess his slanderous activities.
