Bibliographical Shaw

by Dan H. Laurence, release date 2000, Bibliographical Shaw Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Bibliographical Shaw books, Dedicated to Bernard F. Burgunder, eminent collector of Shaviana, SHAW 20 continues "Mr. B's" legacy by making available new bibliographic information on Shaw, his translations, and major research sources, along with two unpublished Shaw pieces. Representing a prodigious amount of research by a number of people, the volume provides extensive, previously unavailable information that is invaluable to the continuing study of Shaw and his works. Featured is Dan H. Laurence's "A Supplement to Bernard Shaw: A Bibliography," the first update to be published since Laurence's original publication in 1983 (Soho Bibiographies). Extending his original publication, Laurence faithfully follows the format and style of the Soho edition, provides useful cross-references to the 1983 edition, and includes a selective index. "A Supplement. . ." makes as current as possible information relating to the publishing history of Shaw's works in English. Also invaluable to scholarship, but not often seen in publication, is the series of investigatory reports, eleven in all, on the history and holdings of major Shaw research sources, written by equally major Shaw scholars, and spanning four nations: England, Ireland, Canada, and the United States. Prominent among the articles is an extensive report by James Tyler on the Burgunder Collection at Cornell University. Beyond these enticing collections is a listing of additional research sources at the end of the section. Last but hardly least is the bibliography of Shaw's translations in ten major languages and an article on Shaw and his translators by Fred D. Crawford, completed by Dan H. Laurence. Culling the history of translations of Shaw's works in distant countries and in various languages, the bibliography gathers hitherto unavailable publication data, transliterated to English. Preceding the bibliography is a fascinating article on the interactions, intrigues, and inconsistencies that surrounded Shaw's relations with his translators. Given the multiple, complex issues involved, the article invites further research on Shaw's translations as much as it provides a basis for such scholarship. Additionally, "Bernard Shaw's Further Letters to Siegfried Trebitsch," edited by Samuel A. Weiss, provides evidence, beyond Weiss's fine book-length edition, of the evolution of a relationship between Shaw and his German translator, particularly in the face of World War II enmities between their respective countries and Trebitsch's continued, if at times ill-managed, efforts to put Shaw on the German stage and in the German heart. In Shaw's "A Devil of a Fellow: Self-Criticism," originally published in a German translation by Trebitsch but published in this volume for the first time in its original English text, we hear Shaw "troubling" the Viennese about his introduction "as a dramatic poet to the German-speaking peoples." Shaw explains easily: "I never resist a man who is in earnest." The man was Siegfried Trebitsch. Also included are corrections and additions to the Collected Letters 1926-1950 by Dan H. Laurence, a review of Leon Hugo's Edwardian Shaw, and John R. Pfeiffer's "Continuing Checklist of Shaviana."

Shaw

by MaryAnn Krajnik Crawford, release date 2005, Shaw Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Shaw books, SHAW 25 offers eighteen articles, thirteen initially presented at the International Shaw Society conference, 17-21 March 2004, Sarasota, Florida. Additional conference and Shaw Festival Symposia information is provided in the Introduction. Stanley Weintraub's conference keynote, "Shaw for the Here and Now," considers modernizing Shaw's plays, validating Shaw's creative force for today and into the future. Dan H. Laurence's delightful "Shaw's Children" shows a warm, caring, playful Shaw--a giver of self. Howard Ira Einsohn's article on gifting brings together Shaw, Ricoeur, and Derrida to explore the ethics of giving "superabundantly" but not foolishly. Jay Tunney reflects on the ways in which his father, boxer Gene Tunney, fits the personal and professional shoes of Shaw's Cashel Byron, with life imitating art. In "Machiavelli, the Shark, and the Tinpot Tragedienne," Bernard F. Dukore delivers a rereading of Major Barbara that highlights characters and traits, revealing an ensnarling web of beliefs, values, actions, and consequences. Sidney P. Albert's essay explores connections between Major Barbara and Plato's Republic. Using a current theoretical lens, Vicki R. Kennell sees Pygmalion as a narrative literary bridge that predicates postmodern critiques. L.W. Conolly's research on Phillipa Summers reveals a model for Vivie Warren and provides insights into women's lives and education at the turn of the century. In "Who's Modern Now? Shaw, Joyce, and Ibsen's When We Dead Awaken," Kathleen Ochshorn looks at the interrelationships of the three dramatists. Miriam Chirico rewrites critical opinion of You Never Can Tell, arguing that the play is a serious social critique, particularly of marriage. Citing two well-documented instances of Shaw-bashing, John A. Bertolini explores Shaw's responses and reveals Shaw's fair-mindedness. Hannes Schweiger's detailed research substantiates Shaw's influential connection to Viennese culture and politics. Valerie Barnes Lipscomb analyzes Shaw's use of age differences to subvert romantic expectations, thereby drawing greater attention to serious sociocultural issues. Part II continues the legacy of Shaw scholarship with Charles A. Carpenter's must-read bibliographic piece, which reads like a mystery and gives a wealth of research information on Shaw. Focusing on the importance and difficulties of cycle plays, Julie Sparks looks at Man and Superman, Heartbreak House, Back to Methuselah, and current offerings such as Kushner's Angels in America. Kay Li, tracing the influence of Shaw on Chinese drama, argues that modern Chinese drama emerged from the failure of Mrs. Warren's Profession. Frank Duba's article analyzes the evolving role of the Preface in Shaw's works, focusing especially on Man and Superman. Coming full circle, the volume returns to Stanley Weintraub's presentation of Shaw and the fascinating story of Lady Colin Campbell--a story that asks us to consider what it means to be endowed with beauty, fame, and ambition, and what it means to finally lose them. Finally, Michael W. Pharand's addendum to SHAW 24 gives supplementary bibliography on Shavian matters related to love, sex, marriage, and women. SHAW 25 also includes reviews as well as John R. Pfieffer's "Continuing Checklist of Shaviana."
