Fintan O'Toole talks Judging Shaw at Princeton University
Princeton University will host a lecture by Fintan O'Toole on “Bernard Shaw and the Uses of Celebrity", based on his latest book Judging Shaw.
George Bernard Shaw has left a vast legacy of theatrical, fictional, polemical, critical and philosophical writing. The first person to win both a Nobel Prize and an Academy Award, Shaw bridges the Victorian era and the contemporary culture of celebrity. The GBS brand came to be recognised globally as referring to an Irish provocateur with a red beard and startling opinions. He was a master of self-invention, a nobody who captured the zeitgeist and one of the first private individuals to understand fully how to generate—and how to use—global fame.
The touring exhibition based on Judging Shaw by Fintan O'Toole will be on display.
