George Bernard Shaw demanded truth and despised convention. He punctured hollow pretensions and smug prudishness-coating his criticism with ingenious and irreverent wit. In Mrs. Warren's Profession, Arms and the Man, Candida, and Man and Superman, the great playwright satirizes society, military heroism, marriage, and the pursuit of man by woman. From a social, literary, and theatrical standpoint, these four plays are among the foremost dramas of the age-as intellectually stimulating as they are thoroughly enjoyable. "My way of joking is to tell the truth: It is the funniest joke in the world."-G. B. Shaw With an Introduction by Eric Bentley and an Afterword by Norman Lloyd
