Summary
The new literary comedies of the 1740s propagated a new sentimental discourse promoting marriage based on love while devaluing the traditional socioeconomic foundations of marriage. Yet in a number of these same comedies, alternative gender roles and sexual behaviors call the primacy of marriage into question. Edward T. Potter examines this marital discourse in close readings of such plays, uncovering the ambiguity of eighteenth-century comedy's stance on marriage and highlighting its resistance to the emerging discourse of the sentimental marriage
