AUTHOR OF THE MONTH- GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

 

G B Shaw
G. B. Shaw

Born in Dublin, Ireland, Shaw never took part in the Irish Literary Revival. He wrote over fifty plays and almost every one of them is dramatized. He started his career as a novelist and as a critic of music and drama. His interest in Henry George, Karl Marx and other social theorists led to his affiliation with the Fabian Socialists. In 1884, he among with few others founded the Fabian Society. There was a time he gave up everything to study Marxism. He spent his free time in the British Museum educating himself on Shakespeare and other great writers. Spiritually and morally he had the strength of  a giant, his passion for justice and his appetite for hard work. He had an admiration for prize-fighters and dictators like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Some notable plays by him: The Devil’s Disciple, Man and Superman, Caesar and Cleopatra,Candida, and Pygmalion. His writing shows he one of the wittiest of human kind.
