Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts, Bernard Shaw
15 Bernard Shaw Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts
Penguin Classics 226959 Great Britain 2003 Reprint 0141439505 / 9780141439501 Softcover Very Good Condition Definitive text under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence. Introduction by Nicholas Grene. George Bernard Shaw's witty comedy of manners, Pygmalion includes an introduction by Nicholas Grene in Penguin Classics. Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist 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. Adapted into the Oscar-winning musical film My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison in 1964, Pygmalion This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventially romantic ending. 122 pages.

Saint Joan - A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue, Bernard Shaw
19 Bernard Shaw Saint Joan - A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue
Penguin Books 227669 Great Britain 1988 0140450238 / 9780140450231 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Saint Joan - A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue by George Bernard Shaw. Joan of Arc, a village girl from the Vosges, was born about 1412; burnt for heresy, witchcraft, and sorcery in 1431; rehabilitated after a fashion in 1456; designated Venerable in 1904; declared Blessed in 1908; and finally canonized in 1920. She is the most notable Warrior Saint in the Christian calendar, and the queerest fish among the eccentric worthies of the Middle Ages. Though a professed and most pious Catholic, and the projector of a Crusade against the Husites, she was in fact one of the first Protestant martyrs. She was also one of the first apostles of Nationalism, and the first French practitioner of Napoleonic realism in warfare as distinguished from the sporting ransom-gambling chivalry of her time. She was the pioneer of rational dressing for women, and, like Queen Christina of Sweden two centuries later, to say nothing of Catalina de Erauso and innumerable obscure heroines who have disguised themselves as men to serve as soldiers and sailors, she refused to accept the specific woman's lot, and dressed and fought and lived as men did. As she contrived to assert herself in all these ways with such force that she was famous throughout western Europe before she was out of her teens (indeed she never got out of them), it is hardly surprising that she was judicially burnt, ostensibly for a number of capital crimes which we no longer punish as such, but essentially for what we call unwomanly and insufferable presumption. At eighteen Joan's pretensions were beyond those of the proudest Pope or the haughtiest emperor. She claimed to be the ambassador and plenipotentiary of God, and to be, in effect, a member of the Church Triumphant whilst still in the flesh on earth. She patronized her own king, and summoned the English king to repentance and obedience to her commands. She lectured, talked down, and overruled statesmen and prelates. She pooh-poohed the plans of generals, leading their troops to victory on plans of her own. She had an unbounded and quite unconcealed contempt for official opinion, judgment, and authority, and for War Office tactics and strategy. Had she been a sage and monarch in whom the most venerable hierarchy and the most illustrious dynasty converged, her pretensions and proceedings would have been as trying to the official mind as the pretensions of Caesar were to Cassius. As her actual condition was pure upstart, there were only two opinions about her. One was that she was miraculous: the other that she was unbearable. Quantity Available: 1.

20 Bernard Shaw The Three Unpleasant Plays
Bernhard Tauchnitz 225836 Leipzig 1914 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Good Condition No Dust Jacket Collection of British Authors - Tauchnitz Edition - Vol 4471:Excerpt: ...character, you think? CUTHBERTsoN. Oh, no, no. A scientific man, perhaps, like yourself. But you know what I mean--a MAN. (Strikes himself a sounding blow on the chest.) PARAMoRE. Of course; but Charteris is a man. CUTHBERTsoN. Pah! you don't see what I mean. (The Page Boy returns with his salver.) PAGE BoY (calling rnonotonously as before). Mr. Cuthbertson, Mr. Cuthbertson, Mr. Cuth CUTHBERTsoN. Here, boy. (He takes a card from the salver.) Bring the gentleman up here. (The boy goes out.) It's Craven. He's coming to lunch with me and Charteris. You might join us if you've nothing better to do, when you've finished with the instrument man. If Julia turns up I'll ask her too. PARAMoRE (flushing with pleasure). I shall be very happy. Thank you. (He is going out at the right hand door when Craven enters.) Good morning, Colonel Craven. CRAvEN (at the door). Good morning--glad to see you. I'm looking for Cuthbertson. PARAMoRE (smiling). There he is. (He goes out.) CUTHBERTsoN (greeting Craven effusively). Delighted to see you. Now will you come to the smoking room, or will you sit down here and have a chat while we're waiting for Charteris. If you like company, the smoking room is always full of women. Here we shall have it pretty well all to ourselves until about three o'clock. CRAvEN. I don't like to see women smoking. I'll make myself comfortable here. (Sits in an easy chair on the right.) CUTHBERTsoN (taking a chair beside him, on his left). Neither do I. There's not a room in this club where I can enj oy a pipe quietly without a woman coming in and beginning to roll a cigarette. It's a disgusting habit in a woman: it's not natural to her sex. CRAvEN (sighing). Ah, Jo, times have changed since we both courted Molly Ebden all those years... 295 pages. Spine faded.
