Product Overview

1914. Many of Shaw's early plays were either banned by the censor or refused production. He began the practice of writing the challenging, mocking, eloquent prefaces to his plays, which were sometimes longer than the play itself. In 1925 he won the Nobel prize. This volume contains three of Shaw's plays including: Androcles and the Lion in which he exercised a kind of retrospective history and from modern movements drew deductions for the Christian era; Pygmalion (made famous under the name My Fair Lady), a witty study of phonetics as well as a clever treatment of middle-class morality and class distinction, proved some of Shaw's greatest successes on the stage. It is a combination of the dramatic, the comic, and the social corrective that gives Shaw's comedies their special flavor; and Overruled.
