The Apple Cart, Too True to Be Good, On the Rocks, and The Millionairess

George Bernard Shaw
Edited by Matthew Yde

Oxford World's Classics

  • An introduction which begins with a discussion of Shaw's life in the years between Saint Joan and The Apple Cart.
  • Surveys Shaw's long career as a socialist activist and shows how this had (if possible) intensified since WWI, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the rise of fascism in Italy and Germany.
  • Provides an understanding of both Shaw's political preoccupations and the historical context in which these plays were written which greatly enhances the readers' understanding and appreciation of the four plays.
  • Select Bibliography and Explanatory Notes
