George Bernard Shaw was born in Dublin, Ireland on July 26th, 1856. During his early years, his work was rejected by publishers. He transitioned to writing reviews about books art and theater in 1895. During this time, he wrote, “Plays Unpleasant” and “Plays Pleasant” that would be a stepping stone for his career. Shaw would go on to write Caesar and Cleopatra (1898) and Man and Superman (1903) which are two plays that he is most known for. Other works included Major Barbara (1905), The Doctor's Dilemma (1906), Pygmalion (1912), Androcles and the Lion (1912), and Saint Joan(1923). Pygmalion would go to be adapted for a movie in 1938. All his plays were of the drama genre featuring his brand of wit. Shaw won a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925. He died in 1950.
