People known to Bernard Shaw had every reason to fear becoming recognizable characters in his plays. Whether from history, literature, or his own crowded career, Shaw's relationships to real or imagined personalities reveal a complexity beyond easy formulation. He put himself into a Jesus, a Caesar, a Cetewayo, a Napoleon, and even into an Edward VIII. Shaw rehabilitated the shocking Lady Colin Campbell and reinvented Virginia Woolf. What he was not, or could not be, himself, became indirectly and imaginatively parts of other personalities, past and present. The lives in this book are a sampling, extraordinary only in being dimensions of Bernard Shaw.
