Cover Image For Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw

Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw

Exclusive to Penguin Classics: the definitive text of one of Shaw's most delightful comedies--part of the official Bernard Shaw Library
 
Raina, a young woman with romantic notions of war and an idealized view of her soldier fiancé, is surprised one night by a Swiss mercenary soldier seeking refuge in her bedchamber. The pragmatic Captain Bluntschli proceeds to puncture all of Raina's illusions about love, heroism, and class. In a second duel of sex, Louka, Raina's maid, uses her wiles in her attempt to gain power. Optimistic, farcical, absurd, and teeming with sexual energy, Arms and the Manhas Shaw inverting the devices of melodrama to glorious effect.
