The plays of Susanna Centlivre (1670-1723) with a prefatory sketch of her life by an anonymous woman author, who complains she is “not a little piqued to find that neither the Nobility nor the Commonality of the year 1722, had Spirit enough to erect in Westminster-Abbey, a Monument justly due to the Manes of the never to be forgotten Mrs. Centlivre.”.
