And here's my silly old dad, who is the biggest office furniture man in the world, would show me the door for marrying the most perfect lady in England merely because she has no handle to her name. Of course it's just absurd. But I tell you, Violet, I don't like deceiving him.

Reviews:
  • Briciraz
I read this play after enjoying Pygmalion. Shaw creates a female lead who uses her femininity and supposed delicacy/cluelessness to manipulate those around her, ultimately trapping the Don Juan-esque male lead into marrying her despite his objections to the institution. Although she pretends to be helpless, she actually controls the situation, so I think this counts as a feminist work, although I'm confused about what his ultimate message is. I'm also not sure how the whole philosophy of the life-force, superman thing fits in, but I haven't read much philosophy, and I enjoyed the play regardless. Like all of Shaw's stuff, the play contains social commentary, humor, and wit.
  • Undeyn
Deep and philosophical I had the advantage of a mentor explaining the meanings and reasons contained in this piece and the how's and whys of why Shaw wrote the way he did in this particular work. A classic.
  • Shadowbourne
G. B. Shaw is among the best literary geniuses of all time and his work Man and Superman is evidence of his writing taken to and prowess. I highly recommend this literary work to anyone of culture and education.
  • Washington
The end is predicatable, of course. Still, Shaw's sense of humor is brillant!
  • Ndyardin
OK
