Description:

In this paper, two idealistic heroines are examined from Brecht's "The Good Woman of Setzuan" and Shaw's "Saint Joan."

From the Paper:

"The German Bertold Brecht and the Englishman George Bernard Shaw were both innovative and controversial writers who were most active during the first half of the Twentieth Century. Brecht adopted communism and Shaw espoused socialism and free love. Both were radical gadflies and social critics who shocked their contemporaries with the activist philosophies and unpopular but progressive ideas of their plays and other writings."
