LITERARY ENCOUNTER

Cycling around the countryside one day...

Underwood encounters a well-known author...

...the famous Irish playwright and critic...

…George Bernard Shaw.

Shaw enquires as to what he is

‘...wasting his youth on...’

Youth is wasted on the young’ - these words are attributed to George Bernard Shaw.

“I told him,

 ghosts and haunted houses…”

“...and he laughed, a deep laugh…”

‘Well now, there’s a problem…

it will take you a lifetime

to solve that mystery...’

‘...maybe I’ll come back

and haunt Shaw’s Corner one day...’

‘...but not yet...’

‘I’ve got too much work to do...’

No Common Task

Life is about creating yourself.’

George Bernard Shaw
