(p.76) 5 “Irritate”
Bernard Shaw as Artist-Fabian

Charles A. Carpenter

University Press of Florida

Compared to other Fabians, Shaw relied heavily on attention given to his personality, his appearance, to his ideas, and, most importantly, his verbalizing. One of the fundamental aspects of Shaw's perspective was revealed when he told Beatrice Webb in 1925 that the need arises for new thought that would raise the awareness. Shaw attempted to further his intention to irritate as such measures would draw attention to relevant matters. Irritation, particularly scandalizing, frustrating, or shocking, was one of the common results of Shaw's actions since the unresolved ending of the permeative strategy could be associated with irritation. This chapter highlights the irritation at the beginning of compositions that would initiate or provoke the attention of listeners and readers.
