Major Barbara

George Bernard Shaw said in 1933, “You must always let yourself think about everything. And you must think about everything as it is, not as it is talked about… We should never accept anything reverently without asking it a great many very searching questions.” Shaw asks “a great many searching questions” about power, wisdom, salvation, and survival in Major Barbara, in which the ideals of conventional morality are brought to bear on the ambiguities of the real world.
