"One of Bernard Shaw's early plays of social protest, Mrs. Warren's Profession places the protagonist's decision to become a prostitute in the context of the appalling conditions for working class women in Victorian England. Faced with ill health, poverty, and marital servitude on the one hand, and opportunities for financial independence, dignity, and self-worth on the other, Kitty Warren follows her sister into a successful career in prostitution. Shaw's fierce social criticism in this play is driven not by conventional mrality, but by anger at the hypocrisy that allows society to condemn prostitution while condoning the discrimination against women that makes prostitution inevitable." "This Broadview edition includes a comprehensive historical and critical introduction; extracts from Shaw's prefaces to the play; Shaw's expurgations of the text; early reviews of the play in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain; and contemporary contextual documents on prostitution, incest, censorship, women's education, and the "New Woman.""--Jacket

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only a few fragments of the correspondence exchanged by George Bernard Shaw and Augustin Hamon had been published so far. The 802 letters exchanged by Shaw and Hamon between july 1893 and the end of 1913 are here transcribed, annotated and analysed. The choice of the period originates in the biographies of the two men, paralleled until the early moments of their correspondence. More stress is laid on the militant career of hamon, as the analysis of his archives brings out a fuller personality than the bare sketch commonly given by critics. Biographical similarities, political opinions held in common for a time and sympathy between Hamon and Shaw explain why, as early as 1904, Hamon was appointed sole translator of Shaw's works and entrusted with the task of having them published and performed in France. The letters exchanged during this period are given the necessary annotations and their thematic analysis throws some light on the difficulties met by Hamon as he strove to have Shaw's work published and performed. Far from being the only person to blame for the failure of these performances, he had to compromise with publishers and managers and try and convince them of the judiciousness of shaw's repeated demands. The mission entrusted to Hamon put the latter in a paradoxical position. Their letters show that a rather ambiguous relationship had developed between the two men, though the pleasures of domination did not exclude friendship and mutual respect. This provisional estimate of a fluctuating alliance opens on the contrasted portraits of two men who, though being poles apart, managed to form an enduring association and influence the theatre of their times
