4.0 out of 5 stars Shaw attacks the assumptions of a conservative 1890's., 30 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Plays Unpleasant: Widowers' Houses; The Philanderer, and, Mrs Warren's Profession (Paperback)
Shaw's cutting wit and exquisite written style attract an unknowing audience to a barrage of attacks on the society of the 1890's. 'Plays Unpleasant' is a collection of different plays highlighting the darker and unmentionable aspects of society at the turn of the ninteenth century. For example 'Mrs Warren's Profession' explores issues of prostitution and its position in society. Shaw directly engages his audience with examples of their own hypocrisy and conservative assumptions in a play that was branded inappropriate and banned from the London stage. This collection of plays gives an interesting perspective of the 1890's society.

This book is in great condition! Lived up to my expectations and is fantastic to read. There are no pen markings on any of the pages which is good.
