ABSTRACT
The article offers literary criticism of the book "Evelina" by Frances Burney, the play "Love for Love" by William Congreve, and the play "School for Scandal" by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. According to the author, Burney's references to Congreve's play in her novel, which notably omitted the actress Frances Abbington, allowed her to tacitly offer her work and herself as surrogates for both. Selective memory, women writers, and Congreve's character Miss Prue are also discussed.
