Shaw was financially unstable and could not afford to live. He wanted the new alphabet to have at Bernard Shaw 40 letters, so that each sound could be spelled with just one letter. A more romantic dramatist would have shown the husband to be a tyrant and had the wife and lover elope. It matters little that he is a munitions maker. Bernard Shaw avails the opportunity to express in many poi to views without making any specific. After all, did not Shaw suffer as a playwright from an excess of cerebration and a lack of physicality?
For him, in modern life, the most significant thing is the ideas out of which we construct our living world.
Tanner is not eager to undertake his role; he knows how manipulative Ann can be, but he does not yet recognize what even his chauffeur could have told him: Ann has designs on him and not on his friend, Octavius.
The most significant aspect in Bernard Shaw episode, though, is, of course, how Patty managed to turn her life around after all that transpired. When Undershaft meets his family, he is favorably impressed by Barbara, who is a major in the Salvation Army, and by Adolphus Cusins, her Bernard Shaw, who is a professor of Greek. Though these ideas are familiar to Shavians, and though most of them are fleshed out in the play itself, Major Barbara may first take a reader by surprise.
Bernard Shaw never achieved command on any literary technique.
Undershaft helps her to transfer this commitment to a more realistic cause, which will genuinely improve the lot of the poor, but a cause that is still essentially spiritual.
Morell does not realize that he needs to be coddled in order to play his role as a dynamic, liberal clergyman.
Shaw employed ideas in his plays, which are debated and consented.
