Includes four plays: ARMS AND THE MAN, CANDIDA, THE MAN OF DESTINY and YOU NEVER CAN TELL. The opening night of ARMS AND THE MAN (1894) made Shaw "the most formidable man in modern letters" (W. B. Yeats). Set in the Balkan mountains, this drama plays with the distinction between allies and enemies, and heroes and cowards. CANDIDA presents the complicated relationship between a vicar, his wife, and her young admirer.

Author Biography

Dublin-born George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) was an active Socialist and a brilliant platform speaker. He was strongly critical of London theatre and closely associated with the intellectual revival of British drama. Dan H. Laurence (series editor) has edited Shaw's Collected Letters and Collected Plays with their Prefaces. He was Literary Advisor to the Shaw Estate until his retirement in 1990. Bill Mc Cormack is Professor of Literary History at Goldsmith's College, London.
