About the Book This book helps to explore and discover the emergence and remarkable acceptance of George Bernard Shaw in the world of drama with special emphasis on the playwright’s dramatic art and philosophy. Here, a fresh critical approach is widened to incorporate our time’s literary, artistic, educational, social, economic, religious, historical, as well as political agenda. The book dwells on an unavoidable literary necessity and passion, possessing the spirit of inquiry, enveloping various challenging issues of life and its institutions. Shaw’s theories of Life Force and Creative Evolution, applied to art and life, interestingly, unfold a revolutionary concept of evolution. A comparative estimate of Shaw, the thinker dramatist, with the literary genius of yesterday and today in the realm of literary tradition occupies a considerable space in the book. Continuing with the essence of discussion and debate, it makes conceivable for the readers to think, rethink, agree or disagree and then to build upon the realities of life in the sorry world of intellectual surrender. It further provides scopes to speculate the progressive Shavian trends by interpreting the message that connects times and spaces, by swiftly transgressing the sketched boundaries of customs and conventions belonging to human civilizations. This book discusses various solutions to the problems exposed and explicitly establishes that in order to bring about reform, it is essential to produce awareness among the masses; the need for creating a better world often through order, construction, and reconstruction. Imbued with an artistic splendor and a revolutionary zeal, the book aims to ignite the thinkers so as to make themselves available for service to humanity, by carrying forward the process of evolution. It is suggestive of critical and evaluative outlook on life and literature. Printed Pages: 144
