Man and Superman is George Bernard Shaw's response to the request of his fans to write a Don Juan themed play.

In America I went out west and fell in with a man who was wanted by the police for holding up trains. I formed a syndicate; and the present enterprise is the result. I became leader, as the Jew always becomes leader, by his brains and imagination. But with all my pride of race I would give everything I possess to be an Englishman

Man And Superman (Act 3) Lyrics. Evening in the Sierra Nevada. Rolling slopes of brown, with olive trees instead of apple trees in the cultivated patches, and occasional prickly pears instead of gorse and bracken in the wilds

Man And Superman (Act 3) Lyrics. Rolling slopes of brown, with olive trees instead of apple trees in the cultivated patches, and occasional prickly pears instead of gorse and bracken in the wilds. Higher up, tall stone peaks and precipices, all handsome and distinguished. No wild nature here: rather a most aristocratic mountain landscape made by a fastidious artist-creator. No vulgar profusion of vegetation: even a touch of aridity in the frequent patches of stones: Spanish magnificence and Spanish economy everywhere.

A Comedy and a Philosophy. That is, if he takes the book seriously. If he does not, he will enjoy himself thoroughly, but will have failed to appreciate the spirit and intention of the work's creator. By. George Bernard Shaw. ave himself from cipherdom, find an affirmative position. His thousand and three affairs of gallantry, after becoming, at most, two immature intrigues leading to sordid and prolonged complications and humiliations, have been discarded altogether as unworthy of his philosophic dignity and compromising to his newly acknowledged position as the founder of a school.

A play by Shaw based around the character of Don Juan and effective both as a comedy of manners and a philosophical dialogue.

I read this play after enjoying Pygmalion. Shaw creates a female lead who uses her femininity and supposed delicacy/cluelessness to manipulate those around her, ultimately trapping the Don Juan-esque male lead into marrying her despite his objections to the institution. Although she pretends to be helpless, she actually controls the situation, so I think this counts as a feminist work, although I'm confused about what his ultimate message is. I'm also not sure how the whole philosophy of the life-force, superman thing fits in, but I haven't read much philosophy, and I enjoyed the play regardless. Like all of Shaw's stuff, the play contains social commentary, humor, and wit.

Deep and philosophical I had the advantage of a mentor explaining the meanings and reasons contained in this piece and the how's and whys of why Shaw wrote the way he did in this particular work. A classic.

G. B. Shaw is among the best literary geniuses of all time and his work Man and Superman is evidence of his writing taken to and prowess. I highly recommend this literary work to anyone of culture and education.

The end is predicatable, of course. Still, Shaw's sense of humor is brillant!

Great first experience reading Shaw! He's such a witty writer that I bought "Pygmalion" in the middle of reading this.
