The Restoration comedy is called comedy of Manners as it presented the superficial habits and manners of only a section of the society – the elegant aristocracy with their vices, intrigues and outward glamour of polished behaviour. The manners displayed were the affections and the cultured veneer of the society.

His comedies are The Old Bachelor, The Double Dealer, Love for Love, The Way of the World.
