Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The first thing which makes The Unbearable Bassington different is that Comus is not the sardonic observer that Reginald is. There is plenty of dissection of the foolishness of high society, but Comus is not the dissector. What makes The Unbearable Bassington more than social satire is the quite extraordinary power of the ending, which is extremely effective.
