Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In this controversial work Shaw appears to criticize Christianity and the Salvation Army. George Bernard Shaw was born in Dublin in 1856. Before becoming a playwright he wrote music and literary criticism. Shaw used his writing to attack social problems such as education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and class privilege. Shaw was particularly conscious of the exploitation of the working class. In Major Barbara a woman who has committed herself to work with the Salvation Army faces the dilemma that its support must come from the corrupt rich, a realization which shatters her faith. She finally finds a code by which she can live.
