Judging Shaw

The radicalism of GBS

By Fintan O'Toole

George Bernard Shaw was the first great 'brand.' The timing of Judging Shaw is fortuitous, as it will serve to reintroduce Shaw to an Irish and international readership. The book is an interesting, informative, and well-written survey of Shaw/GBS and will be a welcome addition to the library of those who know Bernard Shaw perhaps only as the author of Pygmalion, his most popular and frequently performed play.The fourth book in the Royal Irish Academy's award winning 'Judging' series looks at the legacy of George Bernard Shaw, Nobel prizewinner for literature. Fintan O'Toole has written books on Irish history, politics, society and culture. With the Royal Irish Academy, he has published A History of Ireland in 100 Objects (9781908996152) and Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks (9781908996923). He has been awarded the European Press Prize 2017 and the Orwell Prize for Journalism 2017. (Series: Judging, Vol. 4) [Subject: George Bernard Shaw, Irish Studies, Irish Theatre, Literary Studies]
