Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Tubingen (Institute for Anglistics), course: PS I: Introduction to Literary Studies, language: English, abstract: Introduction "Mrs Warren s Profession was written in 1894 to draw the attention to the truth that prostitution is caused, not by female depravity and male licentiousness, but simply by underpaying, under-valuing and over-working women so shamefully that the poorest of them are forced to resort to prostitution to keep body and soul together." (Shaw in his preface to Mrs Warren s Profession; The Guthrie Theater Study Guide). This paper analyzes how George Bernard Shaw explores the problem of prostitution and the temptations that Vivie Warren faces in his play "Mrs Warren s Profession" written in 1894. Concerning the problem of prostitution, Shaw gives an account of a conflict between individual needs and the morality of Victorian society. Furthermore, Shaw exposes the downsides of the principles and morality of the upper classes at the turn of the century. It was a period of sexual repression, which lasted during the 1890s and into the 20th century. The author claims that the "White Slave Traffic," which referred to prostitutes as slaves, was a social problem in post-industrial revolution England. First I will analyze the exploration of the problem of prostitution by looking at the characters and their opinion towards prostition. Then I will focus on the justifications and reasons for prostitution that Shaw provides. In the second half of this paper, I will analyze the temptations Vivie Warren has to face also by looking at the characters and the evolution she goes through. I will finish off with a conclusion in respect to both analyses and by viewing the play as a morality play. Because of the focus on prostitution and Shaw s critical view of society s attitude towards it, the play was censored and wasn t performed until 1902"

Differentiated book- It has a historical context with research of the time-Mrs. Warren's Profession by Bernard Shaw.This book contains a historical context, where past events or the study and narration of these events are examined. The historical context refers to the circumstances and incidents surrounding an event. This context is formed by everything that, in some way, influences the event when it happens. A fact is always tied to its time: that is, to its time. Therefore, when analyzing events that took place tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago, it is essential to know the historical context to understand them. Otherwise, we would be analyzing and judging what happened in a totally different era with a current perspective.is a play written by George Bernard Shaw in 1893, and first performed in London in 1902. The play is about a former prostitute, now a lady (owner of the brothel), trying to come to terms with her disapproving daughter . It is a troublesome game, offering social commentary to illustrate Shaw's belief that the act of prostitution was caused not by moral failure but by financial need. The elements of the work were taken from Shaw's 1882 novel Cashel Byron's Profession, about a man who becomes a boxer due to limited employment opportunities.
