The Shavian Idea of Social Reformation in Mrs. Warren"s Profession
George Bernard Shaw occupies a pioneering position in the introduction of plays of discussion to the field of the modern British drama and his reputation, also, lies in his talent in making his plays function as means for a gradual social reform. With an acute sociological perspective, Shaw rebukes the Victorian social structure and questions the Victorian morality. His downright indictment of the Victorian society qualifies him as a playwright of problem plays and highly satiric plays which called for discussion among his contemporaries. This paper aims to examine Mrs. Warren"s Profession with regard to Shaw"s socialist perspective in matters of social evil. In making a basis for a piecemeal social reform, what counted most to Shaw was the spiritual and moral alteration of the social members. Well-founded on the ideas of the Fabian Society, whose main objective was to attain a social reformation, Shaw relates Mrs. Warren"s career choice with the social structure and asserts the need for a change. Along with Shaw"s manifestation of the Victorian social system, it is noticeable that the corruption of the individuals are not be excused in terms of morality.
