  • Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A few months ago, I was reading through a small packet of unpublished letters by Shaw and was struck by a short one written to Pakenham Beatty's wife Ida in which he is intensely irritated. During the spring of 1906, her female doctor was evidently determined to get him to visit her facilities. In the letter, dated 11 April, he entreats Ida to call her off, fed up with her persistence:Will you please try to bring your doctor to her senses on the subject of a visit by me to her sanitarium' What on earth good can it do her' Does she suppose that I am a prophet and that my mere presence can bring her prosperity' And oh does she realize how desperately I want the few days rest I can snatch in the country—or rather ...

  • Shaw's Proposal and Churchill's Hope

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On May 10, 1940, Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of Great Britain. The same day Nazi Germany attacked and conquered Luxembourg and Norway; attacked Belgium and the Netherlands, defeating them in less than a month; and invaded its major enemy in continental Europe, France. From May 27 to June 4 the British evacuated Dunkirk, saving some 198,000 British soldiers and 140,000 French and Belgian troops, although 80,000 of the latter were left behind. Some were executed; others became prisoners of war. As one of Churchill's biographers stated, Dunkirk was "the making of the man. In these first fragile weeks of his premiership—when he was tested as few leaders have been—he essentially found within himself the ... Read More

  • Bernard Shaw and the Charles Macdona Partnership: Part I

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On 25 August 1939, the city of Glasgow honored a theatrical producer, and his company, for their "7,000th performance in Shavian drama."1 This Shavian producer extraordinaire was Charles Macdona, who staged and toured Shaw productions from 1912 to 1939, making him the most prolific Shavian producer during Shaw's life. While often overlooked since the 1950s, perhaps it is time we knew more about Charles Macdona and his partnership(s) with Shaw.Whether Shaw, four years Macdona's senior, knew of the Macdona family in Dublin is, so far, indeterminable. Charles Macdona was born on 3 October 1860 in Dublin and baptized on 25 November in the south Dublin village of Churchtown in the Parish of Tanney, at St. Naihli's ... Read More

      Abstract: The drawing that adorns the cover of this issue of SHAW shows Shaw in full court jester garb,2 pencil in hand and writing pad dangling from his waist, speaking on the telephone. Some of the many crates containing his plays are labeled (or partially labeled) as follows: NON OLET (Widowers' Houses; the title is from the Latin saying pecunia non olet: "money doesn't stink"), SAINTE JEANNE (Saint Joan), LE DILEMME DU DOCTEUR (The Doctor's Dilemma), LA PROFESSION DE Mme WARREN (Mrs Warren's Profession), L'ADMIRABLE BASHVILLE (The Admirable Bashville), LE DISCIPLE DU DIABLE (The Devil's Disciple), L'HOMME AIMÉ DES FEMMES (The Philanderer; literally The Man Loved by Women), L'HOMME ET LE SURHOMME (Man and Superman), and ...

  • Bernard Shaw + Richard Rorty = Two Dialectical Peas in a Jesusian
           Pragmatist Pod

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the years, I have deployed a notion Eric Bentley, J. L. Wisenthal, and Alfred Turco Jr. introduced to the Shavian community: Bernard Shaw was a dialectical thinker.1 Bentley's formulation is the easiest to grasp conceptually, but it needs elaboration along the lines Wisenthal and Turco provide. The Bentleyan contention is that Shaw saw the world not in "either-or" terms, but in terms of "both-and." Where others saw situations in black and white, Shaw saw shades of gray. Wisenthal famously characterizes this orientation as Shaw's enduring search for a "marriage of contraries" that promotes human betterment. Turco essentially makes the same point, only his remarks center on what he sees as the persistent Shavian ... Read More

  • Pygmalion and the Technologies of Global English

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: London occupies a special place in the history of English elocution. Most obviously, say the elocutionary writers, London stands out because it produces the most correct speech, the manner that other speakers of English should imitate. Thomas Sheridan wrote in the eighteenth century that among all English dialects, one way of speaking "must have the preference, and become fashionable."1 Sheridan reasons that the priority "will of course fall to the lot of that which prevails at court, the source of fashions of all kinds" (38). Sheridan's younger contemporary, John Walker, the author of his age's leading dictionary of English pronunciation, concurred, writing that "though the pronunciation of London is certainly ...

  • Miss Baxter and Mrs. Warren

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1898 Bernard Shaw published Plays Unpleasant, consisting of three plays and a preface to them. In 1902 he added a preface to the third play, Mrs Warren's Profession. In the latter half of 1930 he published a revision of that preface with a postscript that was an abridged version of a letter of his that had appeared in The Times on 17 February 1930.1 Both the letter and postscript concern the refusal by the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC) to license a public showing of a motion picture, The Night Patrol, chiefly because one of its principal subjects, like that of Mrs Warren's Profession, which the Lord Chamberlain had censored for the stage for the same reason in 1898, was prostitution. Beginning with Shaw's ... Read More

  • Remembering The Independent Shavian

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is more than a decade now since a vibrant part of the Shavian scene disappeared. Admirers of Shaw, academic and nonacademic, mourn the loss of the now defunct Bernard Shaw Society, which was the oldest continuing literary society in New York. Also defunct after a half-century is The Independent Shavian (1962–2011), the journal of The Bernard Shaw Society. The journal title was chosen to distinguish it from The Shavian in London. Additionally, the masthead proudly announced that The Independent Shavian "is published under the umbrella of no university or publishing house imprint, and does not receive state or federal grants of any kind." "We are not Dependent Shavians," one wit liked to remark. At the time of its ... Read More

  • Philip Hagemann—a Shavian Composer'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: American composer Philip Henry Hagemann has composed more operas based on plays by Bernard Shaw than anyone else. He was born December 21, 1932, in Mount Vernon, Indiana. From 1954 to 1956, he served in the US Army. He holds music degrees from both Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and Columbia University in New York. In 2016, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree from University of Southern Indiana. He has sponsored a competition prize called the Philip H. Hagemann Award for Musical Performance, and each year the finals are presented as a free public concert at Thrall's Opera House in New Harmony, Indiana. The University of Southern Indiana even has renamed the performing arts ... Read More

  • From the Shaw Bot to ChatGPT: An Assessment of ChatGPT and Recommendations
           for Improvement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The aims of this article are to assess ChatGPT—Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer—as a new tool for Shaw Studies, and provide recommendations to the Beta version. ChatGPT was released on 30 November 2022, and it has reached 100 million monthly users already in just two months. The potential impact of ChatGPT on Shaw Studies should be reckoned with. To assess this impact of ChatGPT, we will regard ChatGPT in perspective, with reference to our Shaw Bot developed in-house by our Sagittarius Literature Digitizing project on Bernard Shaw. Basing on the experience gathered when we created the Shaw Bot in our Sagittarius Digitizing Program on Bernard Shaw, we recognize the cutting-edge technologies of ChatGPT, and ... Read More

  • SHAW Abroad—Art Without Dragons

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I was surprised when Christopher Wixson, editor of SHAW, invited me, a non-Spanish speaker, to review Gustavo A. Rodríguez Martin's book, which, as the title explains, elucidates Shaw's place in Hispanic culture and society. Wixson quickly assured me that most readers of SHAW likely do not speak or read Spanish and that my perspective would thus be appropriate. I then readily accepted the honor of reviewing Rodríguez Martin's fine collection of sixteen essays by leading authorities on Spanish literature and culture. The editor of this volume acknowledges that, in many ways, this collection answers the earlier Bernard Shaw and the French by Michel Pharand, who set a fine example for studies of Bernard Shaw in other ...

  • World Bettering Partnerships

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As this review is appearing in SHAW, I might begin by noting a tendency of some recent scholarly publications to erase from historical accounts that towering figure among his contemporaries, Bernard Shaw. Perhaps GBS's sheer pervasiveness in his own time has provoked an equal but opposite reaction in ours, one of silence and invisibility, of shadowy absence, of what, in contemporary parlance, is called ghosting. One example might be Palgrave Macmillan's 2014 anthology Ireland and the New Journalism, which, with some justification, foregrounded the controversial (New Journalism was nothing if not controversial) English editor W.T. Stead, but gave comparatively little space to the most notable London-based Irish ... Read More

  • Shaw Among the Utopians

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Siân Adiseshiah's new book Utopian Drama: In Search of a Genre is a welcome addition to utopian studies, rightfully placing Bernard Shaw at the center of a discussion of utopian thought on stage. This analysis of utopian drama—distinct from utopian prose narratives like those of Thomas More or Shaw's longtime associate H. G. Wells—is perhaps the most extensive one to date, as previous critics have tended to write more about staging dystopias than utopias. Though focused largely on the English-speaking world, the book begins with practitioners of Old Comedy in ancient Athens and continues through to contemporary dramatists still working today. Adiseshiah also includes female writers and playwrights of color in an ... Read More

  • Irish Übermenschen

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Studies on modern Irish writers have oft-noted Nietzschean connections, while projects on Nietzsche have used modernist Irish writers' adoption of Nietzschean principles as evidence of the reach of the German philosopher's influence. These plenitudinous "links," are, at this point, so firmly established they have become accepted facts. With few exceptions, these clever analyses often explore the relationships between Irish writers and Friedrich Nietzsche as individual case studies and suggest that their interest in philosophy was somehow unique among their contemporaries. In fact, Irish literati in the fin de siècle period were preoccupied by questions of collective and individual identity, and Nietzsche's concepts ... Read More
