About the Book :

This is an in-depth study of Bernard Shaws concept of the superman, a study remarkable for its readability and scholarly treatment of the subject matter. Dr. Singh is deservedly a well known author distinguished for his wide reading in Indian and European Literary traditions and Literatures, particularly of modern Irish and English Literatures. He is not oblivious of Darwin, Bergson, Nietzsche Lamarck and Aurbindo, all of whom have treated this concept in their own style and form, but not in a style more pellucid than Dr. Singhs. And it is this style that makes this book not only profound but also exceedingly readable by scholars and common readers alike. Shaw was indebted to such writers as Neitzsche for the idea of superman. His interest in socialism was a result of his close association with Sidney Webb. Such ideas as these have been lucidly brought out in the present book, which is a storehouse of dispassionate and balanced information about Shaw. Those interested in perfecting their modus criticus and maturing their critical sensibility will find this book extremely useful.
