Recommended to Laura by: professor
The five star rating refers to Aphra Behn's The Rover; or, The Banished Cavaliers. It's got a pirate, love triangles, prostitutes, sword play, trap doors, mistaken identities . . . very bawdy but also great fun! (Very helpful footnotes too on archaic language.)

I later read John Gay's The Beggar's Opera and Polly out of this anthology as well. Of course The Beggar's Opera is a classic, but I preferred Polly, second to The Rover, for it's approach towards Native Americans.

Ok, well it's an anthology - so I haven't actually read all of it. It is a terrific anthology for this subject. Plenty of works and great notes.

The physically compiled book succeeds as a thorough, comprehensive anthology; if only the literature contained within succeeded as good literature. So ends my 1660-1800 distribution requirement.
