Shaw was born in Dublin, Ireland, left mostly to his own devices after his mother ran off to London to pursue a musical career. He educated himself for the most part, and eventually worked for a real estate agent. This experience founded in him a concern for social injustices, seeing poverty and general unfairness afoot, and would go on to address this in many of his works. In 1876, Shaw joined his mother in London where he would finally attain literary success. Written the first decade of the twentieth century, Misalliance is a sort of continuation of another of Shaws play, Getting Married. Set over the course of an afternoon, this play furthers Shaws opinion that divorce should be an easily attainable thing.
