In Saint Joan: Playing with Fire, Arnold Silver alternately views the last and perhaps best of George Bernard Shaw's major plays as great theater, historical re-creation, artifact of the prominent political struggles of the early twentieth century, and emblem of Shaw's own deep-seated personal and philosophical conflicts.
