A. M. Gibbs provides an authoritative and comprehensive account of the life, career, and associations of one of the most significant and influential literary figures of the modern age. Drawing on a wide range of published and unpublished material, the work throws new light on the complex fabric of Shaw's extraordinary career as playwright, novelist, orator, political activist, social commentator, avant-garde thinker, and controversialist. Images of Shaw's daily private life, and of his tangled love affairs, flirtations and friendships, are intertwined with the records of his prodigiously productive career as public figure and creative writer, in a fully documented study which is both a scholarly resource and a lively biographical portrait.
