Description

The definitive text, edited by Shaw scholars.

'This Shaw play must be one of the funniest written in the last 100 years. It has you running breathlessly to keep up with its logic' The Guardian. Arms and the Man has proved to one of Shaw's most popular plays, challenging notions of romance, bravery, cowardice, patriotism, and loyalty. This is a fresh, up to date and accessibly written critical edition for literature and drama students. An authoritative and academically rigorous edition, edited by leading Shaw scholar, J.P Wearing, under the guidance of the advisor to the Shaw Estate, Len Connolly. Students will find a wealth of information to guide their studies: an extended introduction exploring theatrical and historical context, critical reactions, background on the author and stage history. It also includes Shaw's original Preface, and the play itself contains numerous notes and explanations throughout to aid the student's understanding.
