George Etherege helped to develop the comedy of manners, or society comedy, in which the brilliant world of wits and fops is both portrayed and satirized. In his best-known comedy, The Man of Mode (1676), Dorimant, the central character, is hardly a model for how the young man about town should behave. Etherege is a cool observer of manners. Sir Fopling Flutter is clearly a Frenchified fop and dandy, yet he is also lovable. Harriet is a prototype of the witty, liberated woman-coquettish, teasing, and intelligent. Etherege's other comedies are The Comical Revenge, or Love in a Tub (1664) and She Would If She Could (1668).
