George Bernard Shaw in Context

9 mars 2016

Edited by Brad Kent, october 2015 When Shaw died in 1950, the world lost one of its most well-known authors, an influential revolutionary figure who was as renowned for his personality as he was for his humour, humanity, and rebellious thinking.  Over the course of his long life, Shaw feverishly worked to change his context and in doing so reflected it perhaps more than any other writer.  With 42 scholarly essays devoted to different subjects that interested Shaw and that defined his work – from people, places, genres, and art forms to the prevalent political and social issues of his day – this book offers a wide range of material to inform readers while pointing to lacunas and potential fields of research for future scholars.
