Shaw, George Bernard
Item Details
Description
Shaw, George Bernard (1856-1950) Irish playwright and wit; Nobel prize winner (1925) and Oscar winner (1938). Three-page Autograph Manuscript with quotations by his wife, Irish heiress Charlotte Payne-Townshend, n.p., n.d. The manuscript, written by Shaw, appears to be corrections for a book. In part, the manuscript reads, "The long duration of this war has resulted from its hitherto undreamed of military machinery, less from the even more unprecedented wholesale fabrication of public opinion, than from the spiritual mechanism of errors and myths which the vastness, the identity of this war's dangers and sacrifices automatically set up in the minds of all the warring peoples. To the modern conscience in time of peace war is a monstrosity complicated by an absurdity; hence no one can believe himself to have had a hand in bringing it about.…Patriotism as a collective though compound passion, requires for its existence segregation, opposition, antagonism, and I venture to add; hostility ." Corrections to the manuscript are in Shaw's hand but quotations were made by Shaw's wife.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,300.
