What were the causes of decline of the comedy of Manners


The world of the comedy of manners is one agreeable trifling, of leisurely amusement, and it lives by the sheer brilliance of its style, grace and artificiality.

As Dryden realized, “pure comedy of wit is capable of realization only in a few brilliant scenes, repartee alone is not sufficient to sustain a whole comedy”.
