The plays of George Bernard Shaw

Got a book containing the works of George Bernard Shaw. The book interestingly starts with an extremely in-depth analysis of Shaw by G.K.Chesterton, fascinating all by itself, seeing him as the Irishman, the Puritan, the Progressive, the Critic, the Dramatist, and the philosopher. Chesterton must have known Shaw personally, because each of these analyses are a book unto themselves.

This is my first time reading Shaw, and based even on Chesterton’s analysis of him in his various “personalities”, I know I’m in for an interesting time.
