Overview

The Famous Authors video series explores the personal lives and works of prominent literary figures, providing details through the use of photographs, film footage, and authentic documents. This program offers a short biography of the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, whose works were filled with wit and often scathing political commentary. Shaw was also a reviewer and worked actively for social reform in Britain, expressing strong opinions on such subjects as the class system, redistribution of wealth, vivisection, and vegetarianism. His well-known plays include Pygmalion (on which the musical My Fair Lady was based), Man and Superman, Candida, and many others. ~ Alice Duncan
