Book Description Report this book

A sequel of Bernard Shaw´s play. Men who could afford to get married in the Victorian era could make use of “laws that gave him total control of his wife's person — and her fortune”. Victorian women were expected to maintain a poised and dignified manner, and to be obedient to their husbands' requests. The character Vivie defies the Victorian expectations of an obedient woman. She is educated and entirely self-sufficient. During the play she resists two marriage proposals, reflecting her reliance on her work ethic and hard-headed approach to life.
