Overview: With the single exception of Homer there is no eminent writer not even Sir Walter Scott whom I can despise so entirely as I despise Shakespeare when I measure my mind against his. – From SHAW ON SHAKESPEARE Celebrated playwright critic and essayist George Bernard Shaw was more like the Elizabethan master that he would ever admit.
Both men were intristic dramatists who shared a rich and abiding respect for the stage. Shakespeare was the produce of a tempestuous and enlightening era under the reign of his patron Queen Elizabeth I; while G.B.S. reflected the racy and risque spirt of the late 19th century as the champion of modern drama by playwrights like Ibsen and later himself. Culled from Shaw’s reviews prefaces letters to actors and critics and other writings SHAW ON SHAKESPEARE offers a fascinating and unforgettable portrait of the 16th century playwright by his most outspoken critic. This is a witty and provocative classic that combines Shaw’s prodigious critical acumen with a superlative prose style second to none (except perhaps Shakespeare!).
