Shaw in Brazil

Shaw in Brazil world of and was afeard of? Whats happened to Sir Pearce, that I thought was a great general, and that I now see to be no more fit to command an army than an old hen?" (quoted on 96). Roche adds, "In such passages, we are well on our way to the magnificent second act of The Silver Tassie" (96). In a riveting chapter within a powerful book on the modern Irish drama movement, Anthony Roche not only recognizes Shaw's role in that movement but reveals Shaw as being at its center during key moments of its historical development. Connected in those moments to Ireland's national theater, Shaw was integrally linked to many of the Abbey Theatre's key dramatists, not the least of whom was Lady Augusta Gregory, one of Shaw's great friends. Roche's Shaw chapter, indeed the entire book, will be of great value to those interested in the agenda to thoroughly establish Shaw within Irish literary and drama studies. NeLsON O'CeALLAiGH RiTsCHeL is the author of five books on Shaw and Irish theater, including Shaw, Synge, Connolly, and Socialist Provocation (2011) and Bernard Shaw, W. T. Stead, and the New Journalism, forthcoming in 2017 from Palgrave http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png SHAW: The Journal of Bernard Shaw Studies Penn State University Press

Abstract

world of and was afeard of? Whats happened to Sir Pearce, that I thought was a great general, and that I now see to be no more fit to command an army than an old hen?" (quoted on 96). Roche adds, "In such passages, we are well on our way to the magnificent second act of The Silver Tassie" (96). In a riveting chapter within a powerful book on the modern Irish drama movement, Anthony Roche not only recognizes Shaw's role in that movement but reveals Shaw as being at its center during key moments of its historical development. Connected in those moments to Ireland's national theater, Shaw was integrally linked to many of the Abbey Theatre's key dramatists, not the least of whom was Lady Augusta Gregory, one of Shaw's great friends.
