Pygmalion : a romance in five acts by Bernard Shaw( Book )
498 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 5,584 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

Three plays for Puritans by Bernard Shaw( Book )
364 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,748 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

Arms and the man starts with gunfire on a dark street in a small provincial town. The romantic and willful Raina is about to begin her true-life adventure by sheltering the handsome fugitive Bluntschli, enemy of her equally handsome fiancé Sergius. The men may all be heroes - or fools, since this is Shaw's comic view of Balkan chivalry, but the women are definitely more than their match

"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
An unsocial socialist by Bernard Shaw( Book )

Sidney Trefusis is a proselytizing socialist. Armed with irony and paradox, he is determined to overthrow a society riddled with class and sexual exploitation. Henrietta, his adoring wife, "loves" him: he must abandon her. Son of a millionaire, he gives up everything to pose as an "umble peasant". But when this unsocial socialist goes to work as a gardener in the vicinity of a girls' school he meets his match -- for Agatha Wylie is a new kind of woman, perfectly armed: and she doesn't love him. With the character of his clown-prophet Trefusis, George Bernard Shaw presented for the first time his view of what the relationship between the sexes should be
