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."
