Bernard Shaw [Occasionally we reprint something by Shaw that provides a new perspective on some aspect of his work and ideas. Shaw is one of nine authors whose comments appear under the title "Reviewing Reviewed: A Symposium" in The Author (Summer 1943, 65­74);1 his contribution is reprinted here for the first time since that publication. The Author continues to be published by the Society of Authors (founded in 1884), which Shaw joined in August 1897 and on whose Dramatic Subcommittee he served from 1906 until late 1915, "when his wartime unpopularity after the publication of Common Sense About the War [1914] led him to withdraw for the sake of amity within the Society. He continued to serve without formality until his death."2 Shaw made twentyfive contributions to The Author between 1901 and 1945,3 commenting on a wide range of topics, from "How to Make Plays Readable" (1901), "The Crux of the Agent Question" (1911), and "Amateur and Professional Fees for Performing Licenses" (1928) to "Authors and Anthologies" (1932), "Authors and the War: Exploited Patriotism" (1940), and, his last contribution, "Sixty Years in Business as an Author" (1945).
