'...the analysis of individual plays is measured and illuminating. The book will be of interest to all Shavians, to students, and to the many general readers who value Shaw's unsentimental idealism.' British Book News '...Grene's study makes a valuable contribution to a still-developing subject ... His analysis of the plays is well-informed and perceptive, and he is always alert to the exigencies of theatrical performance.' Times Higher Education Supplement
