George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) wrote articles, novels, short stories, and more than sixty iconoclastic plays, including Mrs Warren’s Profession, Caesar and Cleopatra, Pygmalion, and many others. His works challenged assumptions about marriage, religion, and politics. A co-founder of the London School of Economics, he was part of the Fabian Society. He is the only person to have won both an Oscar and the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Lauren Stroyeck More than 1 year ago
Satirical tale of nineteeth century British style full of witty banter. Slow in some parts but still amusing and thought provoking.
