"With Plays Unpleasant, Shaw challenged his audiences' moral complacency. In Widowers' Houses, Harry Trench is engaged to brisk Blanche Sartorius. When he realizes that her father is a slum landlord, Harry questions whether he and Blanche have a future together. In The Philanderer, charismatic Leonard Charteris proposes marriage to Grace, while still involved with the beautiful Julia Craven. But Julia is not inclined to surrender him so easily. 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."--Jacket

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."--Publisher description

"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

Three plays for Puritans by Bernard Shaw( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2000 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member 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
