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
