Remembering George Bernard Shaw

Post by: Deepti Khanna

 

“I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.”

-      George Bernad Shaw

George Bernard Shaw
(26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950) was a popular Irish playwright. He wrote more than 60 plays and his writings concentrated on social problems. His works had a streak of comedy that made the stories more palatable. Shaw looked at education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and class privilege.

Shaw eventually became a household name in Britain and Ireland and was famed the world over. His ironic wit endowed English language with an epithet "Shavian" that referred to his style of dark humour. For instance he once stated, "My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world!"
