About this product
- DescriptionGeorge Bernard Shaw has always been regarded as a political provocateur and socialist with ideas that reflected a complicated public philosophy. Scholarship abounds on Shaw s politics, but Nelson Ritschel s compelling study is the first to explore how Shaw s presence in Irish radical debate manifested itself t only through his direct contributions but also through the way he and his efforts were engaged by others--most tably by the socially liberal dramatist J. M. Synge and the socialist agitator James Conlly.Looking closely at such works as In the Shadow of the Glen, John Bull s Other Island, Playboy of the Western World, and O Flaherty, V.C., Ritschel opens an important door on the hidden dialogue between these men. The result is a gripping, even suspenseful, narrative of the intellectual march to the Easter Uprising of 1916.
- Author BiographyNelson OCeallaigh Ritschel, professor of humanities at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, is the author of Synge and Irish Nationalism.
