The Translations

Within the space confinement of the present volume, a compilation of foreign translations of Shaw can at best be a seminal exploration of a vast territory. It is perforce limited to Shaw’s dramatic canon, fiction, and significant critical and political writings issued in translation during his lifetime, confined to ten languages. The languages are, however, those in which Shaw, first to last, was most directly involved: selecting the translators; maintaining personal contact; critiquing or revising manuscripts; and in most instances controlling publication by underwriting printing costs.

The one exception to this involved a unique problem. As Russia, both before and after the Revolution, entertained no copyright agreements with other nations, Shaw could not prevent unauthorized publication or performance of his previously published works. He could and did, however, supply copies of as yet unpublished writings to an “authorized” translator, who would thus gain an advantage over competitors, both in publication and in stage production.

In principle, the entries are limited to the first publication (serial and book); additional translations (often piratical) published within the same year or a year later; subsequent editions containing new material; and editions with revised titles that are not readily recognizable. Texts known to have been “authorized” for Russian translation are so indicated; all piratical Russian editions issued in the first year of publication are recorded.
