What people are saying - Write a review
Written as if the author saw Candida at her home doing her daily chores of peeling potatoes, dusting the study and taking care of her maturely immature husband Candida is a beautifully written piece and this introduction clearly gives you a true picture of the woman of the Victorian age, strong and mature woman of the age.
Mrs. Meena Sodhi, a well known professor at the prestigious Benares Hindu University is the author of this book. I have known her personally for 3 years while I was a student under her. No one has understood Candida better than Shaw and Mrs. Sodhi. I am full of praises for her for writing this beauty. Mrs. Sodhi's interpretation made me a feminist, and I am proud to admit that. Great book to read in an attempt to understand Candida!!
