It is no coincidence that gardens and libraries often set the scene for Shaws plays, yet scholars have seldom drawn attention to the fact until now.Exposing the subtle interplay of these two settings as a key pattern throughout Shaws dramas, Shaws Settings fills the need for a systematic study of setting as significant to the playwrights work as a whole.

Each of the nine chapters focuses on a different play and a different usage of gardens and libraries, showing that these venues are not just background for action, they also serve as metaphors, foreshadowing, and insight into characters and conflicts.

The vital role of Shaws settings reveals the astonishing depth and complexity of the playwrights dramatic genius.
