A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own. This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventionally romantic ending+-+K7750959654756349ocn000985745book19230.29Shaw, BernardSaint Joan : a chronicle play in six scenes and an epilogueHistoryDramaThe play depicts the trial, burning at the stake, and canonization of Joan of Arc+-+16428959653844235ocn000569262book19120.39Shaw, BernardBack to Methuselah.

Sidney vanished "underground" - disguises himself as a common laborer called "Mengels" - and infiltrates Alton College, a girl's school where well-bred young women are "fitted and fatted to be put on the marriage market". His plan: take over the school and plant the seed of radical socialism into the fertile brains of the future consorts of cabinet ministers and kings. What he doesn't plan on is the presence of one Agatha Wylie, a sixth-form rabble-rouser, who falls hopelessly in love with both Sidney and his politics, and just happens to be his deserted wife's cousin.

In The Devil's Disciple, a clergyman turned soldier and the Shavian ideal of a Puritan hero - 'like all genuinely religious men, a reprobate and an outcast' - willingly risks his life for a stranger. Caesar and Cleopatra, a brilliant satire on contemporary Britain, contains an utterly unexpected portrait of Julius Caesar ('part brute, part woman, and part god'). In Captain Brassbound's Conversion, it is Lady Cicely's cunning manipulation of the truth that ensures that fairness, rather than justice, prevails."

Political drama meets sparkling comedy as veteran strategist Julius Caesar becomes mentor to the enchanting teenage queen of Roman-occupied Egypt. From her first timid encounter with Caesar under a desert moon, Cleopatra grows in strength to become a determined player in the game of power politics - but has she really learned what Caesar wanted to teach her? In his inimitable style, Shaw turns this centuries-old story into a hilarious yet affecting critique of human nature that remains as pertinent today as when he wrote it - reminding readers once again why he is regarded as one of the English language's greatest playwrights+-+618509596532420188ocn000361963book19620.28Shaw, BernardComplete plays, with prefaces198656ocn000204100book19310.50Terry, EllenEllen Terry and Bernard Shaw : a correspondenceBiographyRecords and correspondenceBrevveksling mellem den engelske skuespillerinde Ellen Terry (1847-1928) og forfatteren George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)194782ocn000990748book19110.32Shaw, BernardAndrocles and the lion; Overruled; PygmalionDrama+-+3146995896172977ocn589305819book19160.31Shaw, BernardHeartbreak House a fantasia in the Russian manner on English themesHistoryDramaAnnotation+-+0622702236324318112ocn044965729book19870.19Bloom, HaroldGeorge Bernard ShawCriticism, interpretation, etcStudy guidesA comprehensive research and study guide for several plays by George Bernard Shaw, including plot summaries, lists of characters, and critical views+-+0491902235272833ocn018415481book19880.27Holroyd, MichaelBernard ShawCriticism, interpretation, etcBiographyTo his own generation Bernard Shaw's greatest creation seemed to be himself. Playwright, wit, socialist, polemicist and irresistible charmer, he was the most controversial literary figure of his age and the scourge of all that was most oppressive in late-Victorian England. In his writing and public speeches, he embodied the unfamiliar virtues of reason, sense and unanswerable good humor. And yet, as the opening volume of this masterly four-volume biography makes clear, Shaw's invention of this monumental figure was a paradoxical method of concealment and his way of coming to terms with a world that had abandoned him in childhood. - Jacket flap+-+6608866525324244711ocn040552253visu19960.20Cukor, GeorgeMy fair ladyFictionDramaMusical filmsFilm adaptationsOutside Covent Garden on a rainy evening in 1912, cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins.

In deciphering the enigma that was Shaw, she uncovers a convoluted and extravagant inner life studded with erotic secrets." "Peters examines the passions of Shaw's life - everything from vegetarianism and boxing to socialism and feminism - and pieces them together in a new configuration, offering a fresh interpretation of his life and works. Striving unceasingly to ascend, possessed of monumental energy, Shaw was in many ways a dazzling example of his idealized superman. But, says Peters, this superman was also a man haunted by phantoms, a man of gender ambivalences and romantic yearnings, and a man who championed will even while believing that his erotic inclinations were the secret mark of the born artist. Throughout, he was braced by a resilient comic vision as he transformed his life into enduring art."--Jacket+-+2966180305324215877ocn000362178book19090.50Chesterton, G.

Baker concludes that Shaw was right and presents Shaw's arguments in analytical, logical, and scientific terms. Where previous work on Shaw's religious thought approaches the subject from the point of view of traditional religion, this study approaches his unusual religious ideas on their own terms, which differ from those of either traditional faith or modern atheistic materialism. Baker supports Shaw's contention that his metaphysical principles provide a more solid foundation for ethics and progressive politics than do most alternatives. Baker also endorses Shaw's belief that the scientific principles of rigorousness, logic, and analytical thinking bear out his argument that teleological principles are at work in the world and that the universe can be said to have a will that could be the subject of careful scientific investigation+-+8789758635144533ocn002745841book19500.53Ward, A.

But ultimately she shows that Shaw's influence on Joyce was ubiquitous: while the younger writer followed his own muse as a stylist, the "germs" of all his themes "are in the polemics, prefaces, and plays of the famous Fabian." A critical pragmatist, Black draws on an eclectic blend of sociological/psychological and feminist insights to produce an analysis "accessible to readers who are not specialists in structuralism, deconstruction, manuscript analysis, or any of the critical isms." Given the controversial nature of "The Last Word in Stolentelling," it will find partisan readers among Joyce and Shaw scholars as well as others interested in Irish literature and literary theory136511ocn049295301file19150.28Palmer, JohnGeorge Bernard Shaw harlequin or patriot?Criticism, interpretation, etc134415ocn000362175book19600.47Meisel, MartinShaw and the nineteenth-century theaterHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+116936283532413406ocn000627998book19730.37Valency, MauriceThe cart and the trumpet; the plays of George Bernard ShawCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+3252671395+-+3252671395Fri Mar 21 15:56:42 EDT 2014batch405160
