“A timely and valuable book.”
“The essays… focus on the ways in which Shaw’s dramaturgy, real-life involvement with female contemporaries, and enduring legacy for feminist studies anticipate, challenge, and revise our own vexed notions of gender, writing, and power.”
[An] impressive range of new insights and interpretations of [Shaw’s] work.
--New Theatre Quarterly
The diverse, frequently strong perspectives on offer in Shaw and Feminisms: On Stage and Off will hopefully inspire further engagement with the Fabian feminist.
Provides nuanced readings of dramatic, biographical, and historical topics to confirm that Shaw studies has yet to exhaust this rich area of research.
Provides valuable material in the quest to place Shaw’s multivalent attitudes toward women and gender issues within the debates of his era.
