“The first thing I did was ask for Shaw’s address.”

In 1944 Mexican playwright Rodolfo Usigli took advantage of a wartime trip to England to make contact with one of his idols, British playwright George Bernard Shaw. Usigli’s account of their ensuing correspondence and eventual meeting is the subject of You Have Nothing to Learn From Me: A Literary Relationship Between George Bernard Shaw & Rodolfo Usigli. Previously published only in Spanish, it has been translated into English for the first time and given context by Professor Emeritus Ramón Layera and Assistant Librarian Katie Gibson, with a foreword by Professor Kerry Powell.

The Miami University Libraries is pleased to present this work as its most recent publication, for sale through the Walter Havighurst Special Collections, home of the Rodolfo Usigli Archive. You can also purchase a copy of Usigli’s best-known play, The Impostor, translated into English by Dr. Layera. Please see our Publications page for additional information, or better yet, stop by Special Collections to pick up your copy and consider the variety of other intriguing publications available.
