Pygmalion : a romance in five acts by Bernard Shaw( Book )

28 editions published between 1914 and 1968 in French and English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own. This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventionally romantic ending
Mrs. Warren's profession by Bernard Shaw( Book )

14 editions published between 1908 and 1955 in French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Bernard Shaw's early plays of social protest, Mrs. Warren's Profession places the protagonist's decision to become a prostitute in the context of the appalling conditions for working class women in Victorian England. Faced with ill health, poverty, and marital servitude on the one hand, and opportunities for financial independence, dignity, and self-worth on the other, Kitty Warren follows her sister into a successful career in prostitution. Shaw's fierce social criticism in this play is driven not by conventional mrality, but by anger at the hypocrisy that allows society to condemn prostitution while condoning the discrimination against women that makes prostitution inevitable." "This Broadview edition includes a comprehensive historical and critical introduction; extracts from Shaw's prefaces to the play; Shaw's expurgations of the text; early reviews of the play in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain; and contemporary contextual documents on prostitution, incest, censorship, women's education, and the "New Woman.""--Jacket

Three plays for Puritans by Bernard Shaw( Book )

8 editions published between 1910 and 1935 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disgusted and bored by the trend for titillation and sham on the London stage, Shaw wrote these plays both to educate and entertain his audiences. In The Devil's Disciple, a clergyman turned soldier and the Shavian ideal of a Puritan hero - 'like all genuinely religious men, a reprobate and an outcast' - willingly risks his life for a stranger. Caesar and Cleopatra, a brilliant satire on contemporary Britain, contains an utterly unexpected portrait of Julius Caesar ('part brute, part woman, and part god'). In Captain Brassbound's Conversion, it is Lady Cicely's cunning manipulation of the truth that ensures that fairness, rather than justice, prevails." "Three Plays for Puritans reveals Shaw's constant delight in turning received wisdom upside down and celebrates the triumph of the individual conscience over accepted morality."--Jacket
