Analusis Of The Man Of Destiny

812 words - 4 pages

I'm going to analyze an extract from a play "The man of destiny" by George Bernard Shaw, an Irish playwright, who was mostly talented for drama. He wrote more than 60 plays. Nearly all his writings are devoted to the social problems, but have a vein of comedy which makes their stark themes more palatable. The fact of his being the only person to be nominated both a Nobel Prize in literarture and an Oscar proves him to be a very talented person.

The author uses the third-person objective narrator. The narrator can tell us what is happening but he can't tell us what's in Napoleon's or in the Lady's minds.
