Example text

It is a way of making yourself heard of those who are hard of hearing. Perhaps the author did not fully realize it is also a way of producing puzzle in many minds. The compara­ tive few will make the proper concessions and al­ lowances. The essayist can take up his subj ect, turn it about, let its many facets flash in succes­ sion before us, and in leisured fashion turn it in­ side out for reflection and analysis. The phi­ losopher can balance and concede, strive for a j udicial tone, and leave you in a broad-minded un­ certainty as to the conclusion.

There is thinking enough, and un­ pleasantness enough in life," a wail that rivals in hoary antiquity that other pathetic protest of the Philistine, " I know what I l ike ! " Shaw be­ gan play-writing confronted by the historical attitude which declares that the playhouse is a secular indulgence ; it belongs to a Saturday afternoon, and Sunday is j ust ahead when we can put on sober clothes of repentance, purge, leave sack, and live cleanly. And he met it by suf­ ficiently hiding his seriousness within a frame­ work of interesting fable and then so spicing his 36 B E RNARD SHAW sermon with condiments of wit and s atire and comic scene and character, that the pleasure of the playhouse was preserved even for the light­ minded, and the mourners became like unto those who rej oice.

As to char­ acterization, whatever may be thought of Frank and his father, the other three persons are splen­ did examples of dramatic representation : 1\1rs. 'Van"en, creature of a vicious system, likable in her way, even admirable at moments in her hon- ) 54 BE RNARD SHAW est, un realizing Philistinism, a pathetic, tragic, ironic human figure ; a very great piece of por­ trait drawing ; Vivie, intensely the new type of our day, shrinking in every fiber from her mother yet valiantly desirous of doing her j us­ tice ; hardly inferior to the other two, Praed, an unforgettable picture of the elderly sensualist.
