A Romance In Five Acts
|Publisher||LONGMANS, GREEN AND CO.|
Longmans, Green and Co., 1957. FIRST EDITION, second impression. Very good condition green cloth with white band and decoration, gilt spine titles. “Shaw radically reworks Ovid's tale with a feminist twist: while Henry Higgins successfully teaches Eliza Doolittle to speak and act like a duchess, she adamantly refuses to be his creation. First produced on stage in 1914, this edition was released by the original publisher in conjunction with the classic musical theater adaptation – My Fair Lady – and remains one of Shaw's most popular plays, and an all-time classic work.” Introduction and notes by A.C. Ward.
