Summary: Presented there are all the major Shavian non-dramatic critical writings - on fiction, poetry, biography, criticism. Although Shaw's dramatic criticism has long been available, his non-dramatic literary criticism has remained scattered, some of it uncollected, undiscovered, and even anonymous. Shaw never even reprinted his two famous essays on Dickens which have been influential our of proportion to their accessibility. \nThe opening essay, "Fiction and Truth," written when GBS was an angel young critic, was discovered by the editor in the Shaw Archives and has never been published, while the critical portions of Shaw's famous Prefaces have been lost in the bulk of his work. His enlightened attitude toward sex and morals in general emerges in the literary criticism, and is discussed by Mr. Weintraub in his introduction.
