About this item

Although Bernard Shaw is often regarded as a writer of English society plays, his formative years in Ireland deeply influenced his work for the stage. His use of Irish-born, Irish Diasporic, Surrogate Irish, and Stage English characters reveals the degree to which he maintained a strongly Irish perspective throughout his life. Shaw's Irish-born characters betray his Irish reverse snobbery; he uses them to suggest that it is better to come from a marginalized background than a privileged one.
