This reading of Bernard Shaw focuses on his habit of seeing the world in terms of contraries, a habit related to his basic rejection of absolutes, his distaste for finality. The author examines nine of Shaw's finest plays: Man and Superman, Major Barbara, John Bull's Other Island, The Doctor's Dilemma, Pygmalion, Misalliance, Heartbreak House, Saint Joan, and Back to Methuselah. The book takes seriously Shaw's claim that all of his characters are "right from their several points of view." We are compelled to respect the qualities and values of opposing and very different characters in these plays, and we also have a sense of their complementary defects. J. L. Wisenthal's commentary sheds light on Shaw's techniques of portrayal as well as his dialectical habit of mind. This finely written essay is for all lovers of Shaw and the theater.

Now in book format, Shaw (continuing The Shaw Review) will publish general articles on Shaw and his milieu, reviews, notes and the authoritative Continuing Checklist of Shaviana--the bibliography of Shaw studies. Because of its book size, Shaw will offer approximately twice as many pages as the present three-issue format combined; it therefore will be possible to utilize more illustrative material than before, and more detailed studies. For libraries and individual readers who bind their issues, the expense of binding will now be eliminated, and the studies published will be less susceptible to loss and mutilation than in the paper-cover form. Some annual volumes will be special-theme books, although such service departments as the annual Checklist and a book review section will be continued in them. Two-year subscribers in the U.S. and Canada are guaranteed the Volume 1 price of $15.95 for Volume 2 (1982), $17.50 in all other countries.

Bernard Shaw and the BBC

This is a fascinating study of how controversial works were first performed in both radio and television's infancies.

George Bernard Shaw's frequently stormy but always creative relationship with the British Broadcasting Corporation was in large part responsible for making him a household name on both sides of the Atlantic. From the founding of the BBC in 1922 to his death in 1950, Shaw supported the BBC by participating in debates, giving talks, permitting radio and television broadcasts of many of his plays - even advising on pronunciation questions. Here, for the first time, Leonard Conolly illuminates the often grudging, though usually mutually beneficial, relationship between two of the twentieth century's cultural giants. Drawing on extensive archival materials held in England, the United States, and Canada, Bernard Shaw and the BBC presents a vivid portrait of many contentious issues negotiated between Shaw and the public broadcaster. This is a fascinating study of how controversial works were first performed in both radio and television's infancies. It details debates about freedom of speech, the editing of plays for broadcast, and the protection of authors' rights to control and profit from works performed for radio and television broadcasts. Conolly also scrutinizes Second World War-era censorship, when the British government banned Shaw from making any broadcasts that questioned British policies or strategies. Rich in detail and brimming with Shaw's irrepressible wit, this book also provides links to online appendices of Shaw's broadcasts for the BBC, texts of Shaw's major BBC talks, extracts from German wartime propaganda broadcasts about Shaw, and the BBC's obituaries for Shaw.
