When he realizes that her father is a slum landlord, Harry questions whether he and Blanche have a future together. In The Philanderer, charismatic Leonard Charteris proposes marriage to Grace, while still involved with the beautiful Julia Craven. But Julia is not inclined to surrender him so easily. While in Mrs Warren's Profession, Vivie is forced to reconsider the direction of her own life when she discovers that it is her mother's immoral earnings which have paid for her genteel upbringing."--BOOK JACKET

"Into the eccentric household of Captain Shotover and his daughter Hesione comes Ellie Dunn, a young woman ready to marry for money rather than love. Hesione protests vigorously, but her rakish husband, Hector, snobbish sister, Ariadne, and the wealthy industrialist Boss Mangan have also joined the house-party and opinion becomes divided on the matter. Should financial concerns take priority over romantic ones, or should we hold on to our ideals, regardless of the consequences?"--BOOK JACKET

"John Tanner is horrified to discover that he is the object of Ann Whitefield's ambitions in her search for a satisfactory husband. For Tanner, political pamphleteer and independent mind, escape is the only option. But Ann is grimly resigned to society's expectations and ready for the chase." "In this caustic satire on romantic conventions, Shaw casts his net wide across European culture to draw on works by Mozart, Nietzsche and Conan Doyle for his re-telling of the Don Juan myth. As Stanley Weintraub comments, it was Shaw's ability to combine popular comedy with intellectual seriousness that made Man and Superman 'the first great twentieth-century English play', and one that remains a classic expose of the eternal struggle between the sexes."--BOOK JACKET

Three plays for Puritans by Bernard Shaw( Book )
7 editions published between 1946 and 2000 in English and held by 244 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."--BOOK JACKET
