"With Plays Unpleasant, Shaw challenged his audiences' moral complacency. In Widowers' Houses, Harry Trench is engaged to brisk Blanche Sartorius. 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."--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?"--Jacket

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

"A barbed attack on the British class system, Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. 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."--Publisher description
Man and superman : [a comedy and a philosophy by Bernard Shaw( Book )
32 editions published between 1946 and 2004 in English and held by 521 libraries worldwide
"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."--Jacket
