Publisher's Summary

This witty masterpiece combines high comedy with social commentary as it deflates romantic misconceptions of love and warfare. First produced on the London stage in 1894, Arms and the Man is one of the most frequently acted and studied of Shaw's plays.

When Arms and The Man premiered, Shaw was already a celebrity art critic and socialist lecturer. It was so successful that it immediately established him as one of the greatest wits of London's theatre scene. Shaw subtitled the play "An Anti-Romantic Comedy".
