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.

About the author (2005)

Renowned literary genius George Bernard Shaw was born on July 26, 1856 in Dublin, Ireland. He later moved to London and educated himself at the British Museum while several of his novels were published in small socialist magazines. Shaw later became a music critic for the Star and for the World. He was a drama critic for the Saturday Review and later began to have some of his early plays produced. Shaw wrote the plays Man and Superman, Major Barbara, and Pygmalion, which was later adapted as My Fair Lady in both the musical and film form. He also transformed his works into screenplays for Saint Joan, How He Lied to Her Husband, Arms and the Man, Pygmalion, and Major Barbara. Shaw won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925. George Bernard Shaw died on November 2, 1950 at Ayot St. Lawrence, Hertfordshire, England.
