Shaw and Feminisms free pdf "A worthy successor to "Fabian Feminist." Shaw's influence on the self-image and public standing of women has been immense, both in his time and in our own, yet Shaw has also been widely and sometimes appallingly misunderstood. This book should help clarify the complexities of the issue and provoke continued reflection and debate."--Julie A. Sparks, San Jose State University "This collection suggests that Shaw's views of women are still relevant and provocative and that the dialogue with Shaw is far from over."--Sally Peters, author of "Bernard Shaw: The Ascent of the Superman" When offstage actions contradict a playwright's onstage message, literary study gets messy. In his personal relationships, George Bernard Shaw was often ambivalent toward liberated women--surprisingly so, considering his reputation as one of the first champions of women's rights. His private attitudes sit uncomfortably beside his public philosophies that were so foundational to first-wave feminism. Here, Shaw's long-recognized influence on feminism is reexamined through the lens of twenty-first-century feminist thought as well as previously unpublished primary sources. New links appear between Shaw's writings and his gendered notions of physicality, pain, performance, nationalism, authorship, and politics. The book's archival material includes previously unpublished Shaw correspondence and excerpts from the works of his feminist playwright contemporaries. "Shaw and Feminisms" explores Shaw's strong female characters, his real-life involvement with women, and his continuing impact on theater and politics today. D. A. Hadfield is lecturer in English at the University of Waterloo. She is the author of "Re: Producing Women's Dramatic History: The Politics of Playing in Toronto." Jean Reynolds is professor emerita of English at Polk State College. She has written five books, including "Pygmalion's Wordplay: The Postmodern Shaw."
