Abstract

It is the intention of this paper to demonstrate that, above and beyond such purely historical evidence, Shaw and Ibsen cannot and should not be classified together, or even seen as particularly similar apart from the fact that they dealt with some of the same themes, because they had in fact two completely different world-views. This difference in viewpoint also accounts in large measure for Shaw's distortion, and in some cases downright misunderstanding, of Ibsen.
