The Devil’s Disciple Pdf
The Devil’s Disciple is an 1897 play written by Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw. The play is Shaw’s eighth, and after Richard Mansfield’s original 1897 American production it was his first financial success, which helped to affirm his career as a playwright. It was published in Shaw’s 1901 collection Three Plays for Puritans together with Captain Brassbound’s Conversion and Caesar and Cleopatra. Set in Colonial America during the Revolutionary era, the play tells the story of Richard Dudgeon, a local outcast and self-proclaimed “Devil’s disciple”. In a twist characteristic of Shaw’s love of paradox, Dudgeon sacrifices himself in a Christ-like gesture despite his professed Infernal allegiance.
The Devil’s Disciple Summary
Dick Dudgeon is an outcast from his family in colonial Websterbridge, New Hampshire. He returns their hatred with scorn. After the death of his father, Dick returns to his childhood home to hear the reading of his father’s will, much to his family’s dismay. Anthony Anderson, the local minister, treats him with courtesy despite Dick’s self-proclaimed apostasy, but Dick’s “wickedness” appalls Anderson’s wife Judith. To everyone’s surprise, it is revealed that Dick’s father secretly changed his will just before he died, leaving the bulk of his estate to Dick. Dick promptly evicts his mother from her home, but also invites his cousin Essie (the illegitimate daughter of Dick’s never-do-well uncle Peter), orphaned by the hanging of her father as a rebel by the British, to stay as long as she wants.
