Easton Press. 1979. xxxiii, 215 pp. Red full leather, gilt titles & decorations, all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, ribbon marker bound in. Two plays by the legendary George Bernard Shaw: The Devil's Disciple, and Caesar and Cleopatra. Illustrations by George Him.The Devil's Disciple is an 1897 play written by Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw. The play is Shaw's eighth, and after Richard Mansfield's original 1897 American production it was his first financial success, which helped to affirm his career as a playwright. It was published in Shaw's 1901 collection Three Plays for Puritans together with Captain Brassbound's Conversion and Caesar and Cleopatra. Set in Colonial America during the Revolutionary era, the play tells the story of Richard Dudgeon, a local outcast and self-proclaimed Devil's disciple. In a twist characteristic of Shaw's love of paradox, Dudgeon sacrifices himself in a Christ-like gesture despite his professed Infernal allegiance.Caesar and Cleopatra is a play written in 1898 by George Bernard Shaw that depicts a fictionalized account of the relationship between Julius Caesar and Cleopatra. It was first published with Captain Brassbound's Conversion and The Devil's Disciple in Shaw's 1901 collection Three Plays for Puritans. It was first performed in a single staged reading at Newcastle upon Tyne on 15 March 1899, to secure the copyright. The play was produced in New York in 1906 and in London at the Savoy Theatre in 1907.Keywords: GEORGE BERNARD SHAW RELIGION PLAYS DRAMA TWO PLAY FOR PURITANS DEVILS DISCIPLE CAESAR CLEOPATRA EASTON PRESS Condition Notes: Red full leather, gilt titles & decorations, all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, ribbon marker bound in.
