  1. Plenty

    Plenty is a play by David Hare, first performed in 1978, about British post-war disillusion. Susan Traherne, a former secret agent, is a woman conflicted by the contrast between her past, exciting triumphs—she had worked behind enemy lines as a Special Operations Executive courier in Nazi-occupied France during World War II—and the mundane nature of her present life, as the increasingly depressed wife of a diplomat whose career she has destroyed. Viewing society as morally bankrupt, Susan has become self-absorbed, bored, and destructive — the slow deterioration in her mental health mirrors the crises in the ruling class of post-war Britain. Susan Traherne's story is told in a non-linear chronology, alternating between her wartime and post-wartime lives, illustrating how youthful dreams rarely are realised and how a person's personal life can affect the outside world.

Examples of plenty in a Sentence

  2. Julian Sanchez:

    There’s plenty of scaremongering around steps broadband providers could take in the absence of neutrality regulation — blocking off certain sites, or charging extra fees to access certain services — but not a ton of reason to think they would do these things, which would antagonize customers, be technically tricky to enforce against sophisticated users, and invite the re-imposition of regulations, what’s more realistic is the introduction of plans that provide higher speeds for specific bandwidth-intensive services.

  3. Andy Ryde:

    While there's plenty of confidence, it's slightly fragile because there are lots of reasons why you might think that the climate wasn't perfect, there are lots of wider geopolitical factors that could easily start to cause deals to pause, not least the fact that we're potentially looking at an international trade war.
