"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
Shaw's music : the complete musical criticism in three volumes by Bernard Shaw( Book )

Although primarily known as a playright, George Bernard Shaw also found profitable work as a music critic. He never formally studied music, but was exposed to music almost from birth because of his musical family, many of whom sang and played a variety of instruments. He also grew up attending many of Dublin's music concerts where he experienced opera and works of the great composers. These volumes contain his numerous music critiques from various newspapers in London and more

40 editions published between 1946 and 2004 in English and French and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Tanner is horrified to discover that he is the object of Ann Whitefield's ambitions in her search for a satisfactory husband. For Tanner, political pamphleteer and independent mind, escape is the only option. But Ann is grimly resigned to society's expectations and ready for the chase." "In this caustic satire on romantic conventions, Shaw casts his net wide across European culture to draw on works by Mozart, Nietzsche and Conan Doyle for his re-telling of the Don Juan myth. As Stanley Weintraub comments, it was Shaw's ability to combine popular comedy with intellectual seriousness that made Man and Superman 'the first great twentieth-century English play', and one that remains a classic expose of the eternal struggle between the sexes."--Jacket

"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
