About the book:

"Now may I have, by the reputation of an eunuch, the privileges of one. . . and be seen in a lady's chamber in the morning as early as a husband. . . ." In 17th-century London, a notorious womaniser plans an outageous deception to gain unrivalled pleasures with the ladies of fashionable society. But Horner's ingenuity is taxed when he becomes involved with Margery Pinchwife, a newly-wed from the country who is innocent of the sophisticated ways of city life. Cambridge Literature is a series of study texts which presents writing in the English-speaking world from the 16th century up to the present day. The series includes novels, drama, short stories, poetry, essays and other types of non-fiction. Each edition has the complete text with an appropriate glossary. The student will find in each volume a helpful introduction and a full section of resource notes encouraging active and imaginative study methods.
