In this comprehensive and penetrating study of Heartbreak House , A.M. Gibbs how Shaw's complex, Janus-faced play connects unscrupulous behaviour in Englan's social, political and economic spheres and the life of "cultured, leisured Europe" to the catastrophe of World War I.Revealing the play to be more intricately autobiographical than has been previously recognized, Gibbs analyzes the ways in which refracted images of Shaw's own experiences in the realms of love and sex appear in the play's amatory themes.
