3.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Warren's Profession., 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mrs. Warren's Profession (Paperback)
I personally really enjoyed this play, and read it for one of my modules at university. However, I was very much in the minority, as a number of other students found its moral ambiguity in terms of Mrs Warren's profession and businesses problematic. I personally think that considering it was written in the 1890s it is very progressive in terms of showing some of the harsh realities women had to face if they failed to make a successful marriage and did not have much money. I would definitely recommend it but it is not an easy read. This particular edition also includes Shaw's apology in which he tries to justify why he wrote it. I personally think it's depressing that an author should have to apologise for writing something that has literary merit but goes against the grain.
