A talk by Eleanor Fitzsimons, author Wilde’s Women, and a researcher and writer who specialises in historical and current feminist issues.  She has an MA (first class honours) in Women, Gender and Society from University College Dublin.  She explains:


“Although they had much in common as the first Irish playwrights in decades to make an impact on the London stage, Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw,  two years Wilde’s junior, developed an uneasy and rather distant relationship. Certainly, each respected the other’s talent but they were very different in both temperament and inclination, and they never became close friends. Yet their relationship is worthy of examination since it provides valuable insights into the character of both.”
