Heartbreak House: A Fantasia in the Russian Manner on English Themes. Written between 1916 and 1917, Shaw uses farce and tragedy to illustrate how society in England and Continental Europe followed the lead of those not capable of properly leading. The action opens with a house party disconcerted over the question of marrying for money rather than love and quickly becomes an indictment of the generation that plunged Europe into the first world war and is now drifting toward destruction.
Mary Barton is a millworker's daughter who comes into contact with the son of a wealthy family. She must decide between her devoted lover and the possibilities of joining a middle class family. The book explores the British lower classes' frustration, the false sense of class mobility of the 1800s, at a time when the working class were not able to vote. Much of this novel is autobiographical, incorporating incidents from Gaskell's own life.
