Okay, I'm getting in the groove again.
I liked this. He's such a great writer. So many plays sound ridiculously fake to me. The lines, I mean. Lots of the ones I read in Intro to Lit just made me wild. This story was dramatic and everything, but I believed the lines.
I think I got a bit of it too. Which probably means precisely the opposite, but oh well.
CONCLUSION: I think I would like to read Man and Superman and the other two plays. I like George Bernard Shaw. If only because I read this on the wall of a book store once:
George Bernard Shaw telegrammed Winston Churchill just prior to the opening of Major Barbara: "Have reserved two tickets for first night. Come and bring a friend if you have one."
Churchill wired back, "Impossible to come to first night. Will come to second night, if you have one."
ON A SIDE NOTE: I got the lovely B&N edition you see above at the much-talked of (at least on here) library sale.
That is where he now lives. I love my room. No piled-up books. No floor stacks. They all have homes. I sit on my bed and bask in the glory of it.
