Summary This is one of Shaw's most unusual and enduringly popular plays. With "Saint Joan" (1923) Shaw reached the height of his fame and Joan is one of his finest creations; forceful, vital, and rebelling against the values that surround her. The play distils Shaw's views on the subjects of politics, religion and creative evolution
