    George Bernard Shaw was a master of the satire and he used his pen as a knife to cut through the bejeweled ribbons of a class structure that he found to be both unsustainable and at the pinnacle of it's success In this work he elucidates the concepts of socialism far better than any of the actual proponents of the philosophy did and yet also showed the relative difficulties in ridding society of the evils of rampant capitalism I find it striking that a hundred years after this story was written that the barons of capitalism have still not changed their course and the poor are still slaves to a system they have no chance to escape The discussions of economic systems in the book are enrobed in a light tale of Regency style romance which is not uncommon in Shaw's workit was how the books were able to be published I believe this to be one of Shaw's finest satires and I recommend it highly

    Oh my sweet Fabian Jesus was Shaw ever unbearable when he wrote this It is from his earlyish years 1884 I grant him and in his preface he draws a line between himself as young novel writer and the older playwright and man of political experience I try not to confuse authors with characters especially whey they are attempting a vaguely humourous novel Trefusis may well be something of a caricature Still the heavily expository nature of this novel seems to indicate that in the main these are essentially Shaw's views on Socialism the position of wealth the workings of class and most abysmally the nature of womenI hate it when wit satire and misogyny get confusedTrefusis has public school arrogance than what he mocks in others a great desire to constantly hear his own voice and the emotional reach of a twig Small wonder the Fabians didn't get far with the working classes That said he was right and occasionally witty on a number of pointsAt Cambridge they taught me that his profits were the reward of abstinenceThen came the uestion what did my father abstain from? The workmen abstained from meat drink fresh air good clothes decent lodging holidays money the society of their families and pretty nearly everything that makes life worth living which was perhaps the reason why they usually died twenty years or so sooner than people in my circumstances Yet no one rewarded them for their abstinence The reward came to my father who abstained from none of these things but indulged in them all to his heart's content 94Pages 272 273 contain as good an account of globalisation and the move of industry to countries of cheaper labour as any written today though he believed the workers would follow the jobs He writesAs the British factories are shut up they will be replaced by villas; the manufacturing districts will become fashionable resorts for capitalists living on the interest of foreign investments 273It did take a while for this to happen but I got a little chill reading thatOn the other hand had I written down every grating insult to women phrased as wit contained in these pages this post would have been as long as the book I don't know why these two in particular called me to mark them as I feel sure there was worse but stillBut we Socialists need to study the romantic side of our movement to interest women in it If you want to make a cause grow instruct every woman you meet in it She is or will one day be a wife and will contradict her husband with scraps of your arguments A suabble will follow The son will listen and will be set thinking if he be capable of thought And so the mind of the people gets leavened I have converted many young women Most of them know no of the economic theory of Socialism than they know of Chaldee; but they no longer fear or condemn its name 283On reflection the uote below might just have been the most infuriating I hadn't wanted to punch an author in the stomach this much since reading Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle but that feeling started up from the very beginning when he abandons his wife and commences flirting with several 17 year old school girlsYes; you sometimes have to answer a woman according to her womanishness just as you have to answer a fool according to his folly 333Socialist women certainly had their work cut out for them in fighting for respect a place and a voice in this movement It makes the efforts of those like Maud Pember Reeves and the Fabian women's group all the impressive and I now blame Shaw and his ilk entirely for their steadfast seriousness and abandonment of any kind of 'femininity' as they battled to overturn the image of flighty emotional society women incapable of serious thought presented here What a waste of women's effortThe geographies of this? From a countryside finishing school to London houses in Belsize Park and St John's Wood and back out to a baron's country housefar from the London I know and love

    It was back in the days when I had a compulsion for buying books that I found myself in the back alleys of the famous MG Road in Bangalore I was wandering without purpose when I found myself in front of a second hand book store I was in love with graphic novels then having discovered Moore recently but my browsing through the shop resulted in this book I made a mental note to come back to the shop again when I needed books but as happens with most notes it got lost and I never went back to that shop However the book persisted in my collection; hopping shelves in Bangalore and Delhi before I picked it up recently almost two years since I had picked it up from the small store in BangaloreI was introduced to GB Shaw in Roorkee through Candida one of the plays that was a part of an elective course I liked his writing then and I had remembered this book being mentioned by a then close friend over our endless telephonic discussions Hence Shaw's novel was something that held an intrigue and I was looking forward to what lay in store The novel proved to be uite amusing The story was interlaced with dollops of humour so subtle that I still wonder about what it was that the author tried to mock I initially thought he was mocking socialism but later it seemed his views on socialism were in the earnest Maybe the Victorian society as such Or maybe there was no mockery at all the humour being a result of the ridiculous nature of the conflicting demands of society from individualsThe story revolves around a certain Sidney Trefusis who is introduced as an eccentric character Having found his marriage unbearable he flees his wife and hides from her He takes up the life of a common wage worker and is introduced to the young ladies in Alton College in whose vicinity he has chosen to hide His social conduct is appalling and he tries his best to cause outrage in social settings and gatherings His grooming which he tries to shun so comes back in his dealings with the ladies of the society who he never fails to charm The story twists and turns with Trefusis's socialist propaganda and his resumed social contact with a three ladies of Alton Jane Getrude and Agatha There are flirtations and outrages and absurd social meetings With Sidney nothing is ever uite simpleThe novel lived up to any expectation that I might have had from it It was fast paced and thoroughly entertaining I specially liked the subtle humour and the complete unassuming way that Shaw had weaved it with his story This will definitely make me look up of Shaw's novels in the future


  4. Manik Sukoco Manik Sukoco says:

    Sidney Trefusis son and heir to a cotton merchant despises the world of class and privilege he was born into and takes up the socialist cause Deserting his wife of six weeks he poses as a laborer and once rumbled in that guise as a gentleman agitator for the socialist cause But chief among his people to reform and convert are the society women in his circle who are simply expected to be unthinking adornments to their husbands who offer Class and Good breeding to atone for the vapid life they offer If women can be made to wake up to their condition surely the socialist cause will advance far uickerShaw's 1884 novel is entertaining enough but isn't really sure what it wants to be the comedy of the early chapters soon switching to political preaching and melancholy Trefusis is a ridiculous prig and the naivety of his politics is made grating by the fact there is no challenge to them That capitalism is brutal earning the merchants such as Trefusis's father than they could ever hope to spend whilst the working class are denied the right to earn even enough to subsist is undeniably the great social evil of its and subseuent days; but Shaw is naive in thinking flowery political solutions that sound great in theory rarelynever? translate into reality as politics as any reader of Orwell will tell you is about power over the people; NOT for the peoplePerhaps a better answer already existed Cadbury who built uality homes for his workers and paid them well or the John Lewis model where the workers still to this day take a share in the profits they help generate and could have been used by social reformers to force all capitalists to follow a just model whereas the political model just caused a superb reason for them to entrench their positionAll in all 'An Unsocial Socialist' is a bit of a uaint curiosity now as far as the politics goes but it still stands up as a beacon for the feminist cause and the role of women in society It also gives a useful window to look into and see the winds for social change that were blowing in to Victorian Britain and the world in general


  5. Magdalena Magdalena says:

    An old fashioned read I'm afraidWhat starts as a light hearted description of events at a school for girls finishes as an embarrassingly boring romance with some pages on socialism thrown in betweenWitty remarks 'a polite lady who refrained from staring but not from observing' were too scarce to save the book


  6. Ahmed Mehrez Ahmed Mehrez says:

    Never mind tomorrow Be like the sun and the meadow which are not in the least concerned about the coming winterI cannot sit at their feasts knowing how much they cost in human misery and seeing how little they produce of human happinessThe world is mad nowadays and is galloping to the deuce as fast as greed can goad itI am trying to offend you in order to save myself from falling in love with you Some fiend enters into me when I am at your sideYou will find three classes of men polite to you—slaves men who think much of their manners and nothing of you and your loversShe now guessed what was coming not because she intended to accept but because she counted the proposals of marriage she received as a Red Indian counts the scalps he takesIf they hesitate to strip us naked or to cut our throats if we offer them the smallest resistance they will show us mercy than we ever showed themHe thinks highly of you than you deserve; but you on the other hand think too lowly of him When you marry him you must save him from a cruel disenchantment by raising yourself to the level he fancies you have attainedI began by talking sense like a man of honor and kept at it for half an hour but she would not listen to me Then I talked romantic nonsense of the cheapest sort for five minutes and she consented with tears in her eyes


  7. Mac Mac says:

    An Unsocial Socialist was what finally did it It caused me to take a pause from reading George Bernard Shaw for a while I have been reading his works for probably over a year now but not always with pleasure Though he's often claimed as the second greatest English language dramatist after Shakespeare I would not rank him nearly so high I have read nearly all his public domain works but the last few will have to wait for now I need a breakBack to An Unsocial Socialist It is one of Shaw's handful of novels mostly written before he turned to playwriting It was interesting to see that he uses the same scene setting techniue here in a novel as he does in his plays In both cases he will typically describe the room in great boring to me detail before proceeding with the action Thus it seems that his style of writing evolved naturally into a congenial genre His plays are novelistic in other wordsThe problem with this book is that it is all over the place At first it seems that the main characters will be a set of girls at a boarding school But no the real protagonist and unsocial socialist of the title is a beggar they later meet who is actually a rich person pretending to be poor It's hard to care much about any of the characters which by the way is the same problem I have with most of Shaw's plays Unlike the plays the time jumps way ahead through the book Many of the girls in the opening chapters get married etc Unless you're desperately curious to see what Shaw was like as a novelist stay away from this one As for me I'll be glad to take a vacation in the land of Camelot for a while


  8. Guilherme Ferrão Guilherme Ferrão says:

    A mildly amusing book with an average story and characters Provides good insight on the living conditions of the late 19th century and clarifies the revolutionary way of thinking in a few key aspects even if some of it is somewhat outdatesEDIT a fair warning there are uite a few misogynistic passages involved which represent Shaw's views on women than socialists'


  9. Maria Ch Maria Ch says:

    It is very rarely that one comes upon a book in which its main character is so unsympathetic It is often we encounter books with flawed main characters but somehow the author manipulates the reader into liking them and before we know it we are rooting for the anti hero or we are justifying their faults and bad decision making This is not the case in An Unsocial socialist I found it very difficult to follow this story because it had very little interest for me Trefusis is not a likeable character Henrietta or Agatha are not either None of their actions are justifiable or endorsed Everything in this story is a bit superficial and at times even random and even though I forced myself into reading it I can hardly say I enjoyed it and was very relieved when I reached the end


  10. Joyce Joyce says:

    Shaw's main character certainly is unsocial He says very pertinent things about the unfairness of the social order He says reasonable things about the unimportance of romance But he seems over all to say that emotions are unnecessary art is a fraud reason is the only thing that counts and humanity is hopeless Read the first 23 of the book to get some great uotes about socialism then feel free to go about your way elsewhere
