Susannah Fullerton: A Touch of Irish Magic 3 part series: Three Dublin Writers
It has been said that whenever the English language goes to sleep, along comes an Irish writer to wake it up! This short series of lectures features three of the great Irish writers, all of them born in Dublin - Jonathan Swift, George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce. Learn something of their extraordinary lives, discover what inspired their novels, plays, short stories and poems, and listen to extracts from some of their finest works.
Lecture 2: GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
He wrote more than 60 plays and his influence on theatre in the English-speaking world has been enormous. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925. Shaw was contentious, endlessly quotable, funny and innovative. Learn more about this intriguing man and his works, such as Pygmalion, Saint Joan and Major Barbara.
