George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)
Bernard Shaw was born in Dublin. Following his disparate
education (being bitterly opposed to it), he worked in an
estate agent’s office and whilst in London established
himself as a theatre and music critic and a prominent member
of the Fabian Society and dedicated socialist. He also became
a staunch vegetarian.
Shaw's own plays were performed
in the 1890’s, and within a decade he was able to make
a living as a playwright, composing in excess of sixty plays.
He was later awarded both the Nobel Prize in Literature and
an Oscar for his adapted screenplay of Pygmalion.
