Riassunto: My dear Walklcy You once asked me why I did not write a Don Juan play. The levity with which you assumed this frightful responsibility has probably by this time enabled you to forget it ;but the day of reckoning has arrived :here is your play !I say your play, because qui facit per alium facit per se. I ts profits, like its labor, belong to me: its morals, its manners, its philosophy, its influence on the young, are for you to justify. You were of mature age when you made the suggestion; and you knew your man. It is hardly fifteen years since, as twin pioneers of the New Journalism of that time, we two, cradledin the same new sheets, made an epoch in the critidsm of the theatre and the opera house by making it a pretext for a propaganda of our own views of life. So you cannot plead ignorance of the character of the force you set in motion. You meant me to epater le bourgeois ;and if he protests, I hereby refer him to you as the accountable party. I warn you that if you attempt to repudiate your responsibility, I shall suspect you of finding the play too decorous for your taste. The fifteen years have made me older and graver.

Recensione: How tantalizing to hear Ralph Fiennes ( The English Patient, Schindler's List) but not be able to see him! And hear him one does in his role as Jack Tanner, the antihero of Shaw's 1905 classic drama Man and Superman. Fiennes is a veritable mouthpiece--and a frequently sarcastic one at that--for the burning issues on Shaw's philosophical and social laundry list: the state of the English working class, the arms race, women's rights, unwed mothers, the evils of industry and capitalism, and English morality in general. The seriousness of the discussions is tempered by delightful Shavian wit ("There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it."), which prevents the dialogue from collapsing under its own weight, although it does teeter at times. The four-act play, directed by the esteemed Peter Hall for BBC Radio, begins in the English countryside and ends in the mountains of Spain after a curious detour to Hell, where, in act 3, the famous dream sequence unfolds and the main characters take on such roles as Don Juan and the Devil to further hash out the meaning of existence, the definition of life force, and the power of the female sex. This is a spirited production of Shaw's imperfect but intellectually challenging work. (Running time: 225 min; four cassettes)

Descrizione libro Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Man and Superman: A Comedy and a Philosophy is a dramatic work penned by George Bernard Shaw and originally performed at The Royal Court Theatre in London in 1905. George Bernard Shaw was a well-known Irish author, playwright and journalist. He holds the distinction of being the only individual ever to win both an Academy Award and the Nobel Prize for Literature. Man and Superman is one of his most well known dramatic works. The story is a classic Don Juan story, the fictional libertine and womaniser who is the central character in many dramatic works. Told over four acts, it is the story of John Tanner, a revolutionary, and his pursuit of the beautiful Ann Whitefield. A lengthy epistle dedicatory in which the author explains the genesis of the work precedes the play. The book concludes with The Revolutionist s Handbook, presented as the work of Shaw s central character John Tanner. Man and Superman, as the subtitle suggests, is intended to be both a comedic work and a commentary on gender relations. Shaw believes that women hold more social power than men, particularly with regards to decisions of marriage. The drama itself is indeed quite comical, and it becomes clear to the reader why this work achieved a good deal of popularity in its day. George Bernard Shaw was an accomplished artist, and Man and Superman is one of his most renowned works. Fans of Shaw will certainly be pleased with this title, which can also serve as the perfect introduction to the author s works for the uninitiated.
