Opis

George Bernard Shaw wrote more than sixty plays and this new volume brings three of his comedies together in one volume – each one is witty, entertaining and has embedded into it Shaw’s intense concerns about poverty, class and inequality.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition has a preface by Oscar winning actress Judy Dench.

Pygmalion was first performed in 1914 and was an instant hit. It tells the story of Eliza Dolittle, a cockney flower girl who, as an experiment, is given elocution lessons by Professor Henry Higgins to see if he can pass her off as a lady. In Major Barbara, idealistic Barbara is a Major in the Salvation Army whilst her father Andrew Undershaft is a millionaire armaments manufacturer. A battle rages between the two of them as they fight over the question; does salvation come through faith or finance? Androcles and the Lion is a comedy about a gentle Christian who pulls a thorn from a lion’s paw. When the Romans try to feed him to the lions, his kindness is repaid.
