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.
