Three Plays by Brieux: Maternity; the Three Daughters of M. Dupont; Damaged Goods
1907. With preface by Bernard Shaw. English versions by Mrs. Bernard Shaw, St. John Hankin and John Pollock. Shaw considered Eugene Brieux of France the greatest playwright in Europe after Ibsen; and Brieux's rather shocking studies of social problems certainly suggest Ibsen, especially Brieux's Les avaries (Damaged Goods), which discussed sexually transmitted disease. Contents: Maternity; The Three Daughters of M. Dupont; Damaged Goods; and Maternity (new version). See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
