    Bernard Shaw and Nancy Lady Astor enjoyed a close friendship for over twenty years, from the late 1920s until Shaw's death in 1950. Although opposites in many matters - particularly politics - Shaw and Astor were irrestistibly attracted to each other, both being unconventional firebrands with ready wits. This collection of nearly 250 letters between Shaw and Astor - as well as between Astor and Shaw's wife, Charlotte, and Shaw's secretary, Blanche Patch - illustrates the rewarding friendship the two shared and the numerous issues they debated.

    Shaw is renowned as a playwright, and his energy (he wrote more than forty plays) has left many unaware or indifferent to his prose. This is an oversight, for his prose contains all of his ideas. Though Shaw was a fertile playwright, he was even more productive as a prose writer. Music, theatre, socialism, fiction, autobiography.

    The Methuen Drama Book of Naturalist Plays is a collection of landmark dramatic works from the modern period that will prove invaluable to students and general readers alike.Emerging in the late nineteenth century, Naturalism in the theatre sought to strip away artifice and hold a mirror up to the world. This compendium offers six of the most commonly studied and performed Naturalist plays from the European repertoire, dating from 1879-1909. It includes:-Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House which in its depiction of Nora Helmer exploded contemporary gender conventions;-Miss Julie, August Strindberg's classic exploration of class mobility and sexual desire played out as a Darwinist struggle;-The Weavers, Gerhart Hauptmann's quintessential Marxist drama documenting a Silesian weavers' revolt;-Bernard Shaw's Mrs Warren's Profession which in addressing capitalism's exploitation of women was so ahead of its time that it did not receive a public production for over a quarter of a century;-Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, often regarded as the writer's greatest play and one that commanded a new mode of acting, and-John Galsworthy's Strife which appraises class conflict amid an economic dispute.The six plays perfectly illustrate the formal diversity and the major philosophical, political and theatrical preoccupations of the movement. An introduction by Dr Chris Megson traces Naturalism's roots, explores its aims and methods, provides an analysis of the selected plays and considers Naturalism's legacy and resonance today.
