Shaw the Villager and Human Being: A Biographical Symposium

By Allan Chappelow | Go to book overview

LADY LENANTON (Carola Oman, the writer)

A near-neighbour of Bernard Shaw's living at l7th-century Bride Hall, on the Wheathampstead Road

" Shaw was a generous man and he was regarded as such in the village. He gave to all the village funds. I saw him often, and never came away without the gift of a book from him. He inscribed several to me. He also left me some of his cameras and other photographic equipment.

"I was one of the very last to see him with something of his old humour. It was on October 22nd, ten days before he died. He seemed very bright then and told me about a drive he'd gone on once. 'Won't it go any faster?' he asked the driver. The driver replied, 'I was told you were a very old gentleman, sir.' 'Rubbish,' Shaw told him. 'Drive like Hell!'

"What a marvellous actor he would have made. He had a beautiful voice. He could imitate Henry Irving particularly well, especially as the Jew in The Bells--one of Irving's great parts-- and he was wonderful as 'Macbeth.'"
