From Augustin Hamon, The Twentieth Century Molière, trans. Eden and Cedar Paul (London: George Allen & Unwin, 1916) pp. 88–90. Augustin Hamon (1862–1945) was a French socialist author who at Shaw’s insistence became his French translator in 1904. The Twentieth Century Molière, a study of Shaw and his work, was first published in Paris in 1913. Here Hamon begins by describing Shaw’s appearance when they met in 1894.
