A mixed bag. Philip Ward puts Four Comedies on his list of 500 books, but now I’m not sure it was this Four Comedies. The first play in the anthology, Mine Hostess, is excellent. It contains what the commentary says is the most famous scene in Goldoni, the ironing scene. The next two, The Impressario from Smyrna and The Good Girl, are completely forgettable. The commentary says The Good Girl was an early work and a transition from Commedia dell’Arte for Goldoni.

The last, The Fan is a good farce
