"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.

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.

Plays pleasant by Bernard Shaw ( Book )
6 editions published between 1946 and 2003 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"One of Bernard Shaw's most glittering comedies, Arms and the Man is a burlesque of Victorian attitudes to heroism, war and empire. In the contrast between Bluntschli, the mercenary soldier, and the brave leader, Sergius, the true nature of valour is revealed. Shaw mocks deluded idealism in Candida, when a young poet becomes infatuated with the wife of a Socialist preacher. The Man of Destiny is a witty war of words between Napoleon and a 'strange lady', while in the exuberant farce You Never Can Tell a divided family is reunited by chance. Although Shaw intended Plays Pleasant to be gentler comedies than those in the companion volume, Plays Unpleasant, their prophetic satire remains sharp and provocative."--BOOK JACKET.
