Bernard Shaw's: Saint Joan, Major Barbara, and Androcles and the Lion
Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan Major Barbara and Androcles and the Lion Author:Bernard Shaw Bernard Shaw has been called "the liveliest and, in many ways, the youngest intellect of the century." This estimate is fully supported by the three "problem" plays in this volume: — SAINT JOAN---a searching protrayal of Joan of Arc--one of Shaw's greatest successes in the theatre, — MAJOR BARBARA, a devasting indictment of insincere philanthropy... more »---regarded by some critics as one of Shaw's finest works,
ANDROCLES AND THE LION,a brilliant exploration of the varieties of faith--a perennial favorite of Shaw admirers.
Often disconcerting and irreverent, Shaw never fails to be thought-provoking in his charmingly witty way. The Modern Library takes pride in adding these plays to those already available in FOUR PLAYS BY BERNARD SHAW.« less
