Matthew Edward McNulty's "Memoirs of G.B.S.," edited by Dan Laurence, reveals how Shaw appeared to his friend of longest standing. T. F. Evans provides a cricket enthusiast's view of Shaw, and Florence Chien translates an essay by Lu Xun that responded to Shaw's 1933 visit to China.Gerald Weales discusses Shaw's influence on American playwrights, Michael M. O'l-Iara chronicles the Federal Theatre Project's 1930s productions of On the Rocks, Stephen Porter discusses Shaw from an American director's perspective, and Leon H. Hugo's interview with Stanley Weintraub focuses on an American scholar's search for Shaw. Edward R. Isser examines the relationship between Geneva and subsequent British Holocaust drama, and R. F. Dietrich presents an annotated bibliography of plays that put Shaw on stage as a character.Josephine Lee examines the nature of Shaw's music criticism, and Richard Corballis discusses the role of music in Shaw's dramaturgy. William D. T. Fordyce looks at The Doctor's Dilemma in terms of its "quasi-agon." David Ian Rabey discusses Heartbreak House and Too True to Be Good in the context of existential expressionism.Patrick White focuses on the many parallels between Candida and Chaucer's Franklin's Tale, Tracy Simmons Bitonti analyzes Shaw's use of offstage characters, and Bryan Cheyette assesses the Semitic representations in Shaw's works. Kenneth Rogers reevaluates Cusins's motives in Major Barbara, and Carol L. Riddle argues that Shaw intended more sympathetic treatment of Mrs. Dudgeon from The Devil's Disciple than many have realized.Also included in this volume are early unsigned Pall Mall Gazette notices by Shaw, introduced by Brian F. Tyson, reviews of three recent additions to Shavian scholarship, and the Continuing Checklist of Shaviana.
