Join Fintan O’Toole for his lecture on 'Bernard Shaw and the uses of celebrity'.
George Bernard Shaw, Nobel prizewinner for literature and Academy Award winner, is perhaps best known as the author of Pygmalion (his most popular and most frequently performed play). GBS was the first great brand and, in this lecture, Fintan O’Toole will explore how Shaw created this most modern of concepts. In Judging Shaw, the fourth book in the Royal Irish Academy’s award winning ‘Judging’ series Fintan looks at the legacy of George Bernard Shaw as well as reintroducing GBS to an Irish and international readership.
