Publisher: Iyer Press

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 280 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.6in.GEORGE BERNARD SHAW - A CRITICAL STUDY by JOSEPH MCCABE. Originally published in 1914. No other English artist of our time has an international audience approaching that of Bernard Shaw in size, to say of nothng intellectual quality. He can use the journals and magazines of half the world as his mouth pieces whenever he chooses. It may be largely, though certainly it is not wholly, because he is a jester. There is a deliberately shaped message in every jest, and it will rankle. He does not want a Shavian school: his ambition is larger than that. He wants to say what he pleases to the vast world outside all schools, and, in his way, he has succeeded. How he has succeeded; what a message he delivers, and what it is worth; what he has done, and failed to do; and how you may distinguish a momentary paradox from a reasoned conviction, it is the business of this little book to relate. It is not a panegyric or a biography. It is a critical interpretation of the man and his message. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781409713029

There is a deliberately shaped message in every jest, and it will rankle. He does not want a Shavian school: his ambition is larger than that. He wants to say what he pleases to the vast world outside all schools, and, in his way, he has succeeded.
