Candida, a comedy by playwright George Bernard Shaw, was written in 1894 and initially published in 1898, as part of his Plays Pleasant. The central characters are clergyman James Morell, his wife Candida and a youthful poet, Eugene Marchbanks, who tries to win Candida's affections. The play questions Victorian notions of love and marriage, asking what a woman really desires from her husband. The cleric is a Christian Socialist, allowing Shaw—himself a Fabian Socialist—to weave political issues, current at the time, into the story.
This edition has been formatted for your Kindle, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with additional information about the play and its author, including an overview, characters, plot, early productions, criticism, interpretation, later productions, musical adaptations, biographical and bibliographical information.
