Re: Re: Aba bro

Shaw had an innate ability to be boring, his preface would be even larger than his plays. Hs finest I like is Tess of the d'Urbervilles, followed by St. Joan. Since I know the story well I'm quickly giving another version wherein probably lies the interest of the story, to make my big sis's finger put .

Re: FSI

That's because GBS was strongly cynical and an anti-romantic.

Re: Aba bro

This has always fascinated me. As I child I saw an old movie; it was an 'updated version' closer to the true ancient Greek myth. How much of this story is about control, and how much of it is frustrating. Once would like the dialogue of the characters to proceed in a different fashion. Perhaps the message is one cannot be "made over," though one can certainly improve. Motivation is a key, but there is something inherently uncomfortable in Shaw's version that I can't quite put my finger on. Actually, too many things.  I like the classic version much better. Great job, Aba!

There are many messages here in the play/movie. I will come back later, Aba dear. Bro.

Him not wanting to marry really strikes me. It seems like more people these days do not have an interest in getting married or are putting it off due to career reasons.
