In Major Barbara, George Bernard Shaw spins out the drama of an eccentric millionaire, a ro-mantic poet, and a misguided savior of souls, Major Barbara herself, in a topsy-turvy master-piece of sophisticated banter and urbane humor. His brilliant dialogue, combined with his use of paradox and socialist theory, never fails to tickle, entertain-and challenge. George Bernard Shaw was the greatest British dramatist after Shakespeare, a satirist equal to Jonathan Swift, and a playwright whose most profound gift was his ability to make audiences think by provoking them to laughter.
