Epistle Dedicatory to Arthur Bingham Walkly
The printed play includes a dedication, in the form of a letter (epistle), addressed to Arthur Bingham Walkly, a drama critic and Shaw's friend of fifteen years, who, according to the letter, had once asked Shaw why he did not write a Don Juan play. The dedication defends the play's "preaching" tone, and sets out the premise of the play as "the natural attraction of the sexes," to be distinguished from a play about love or marriage.
