Om boka

"Bernard Shaw's Irish Outlook is an important, original, well-written, critically incisive, and long overdue study of Bernard Shaw's Irishness ... It is the first single-authored volume exclusively focused on the subject of Shaw and Irishness. It will be joined by others in time, but it is unlikely to be bettered." Anthony Roche, Professor, University College Dublin, Ireland "David Clare's radical analysis, delivered in subtle prose, constitutes a challenge to Shavians and to Hibernophiles to rethink some of their most basic assumptions. A bracing and enjoyable read." Declan Kiberd, Professor, University of Notre Dame, USA "Clare wonderfully illuminates the degree to which Shaw's Irish identity remained the great constant in his protean career." Fintan O'Toole, The Irish Times "We know that Ireland is a presence in some of Shaw's plays - John Bull's Other Island, most famously. David Clare's fascinating and important study gives us new ways to think about such works but also sheds new light on many of Shaw's most famous dramas, including Pygmalion and Saint Joan. As readable as it is insightful, this book will be of wide interest to scholars of Shaw, Irish literature, and theatre studies." Patrick Lonergan, Professor, National University of Ireland, Galway
