Аннотация

One of George Bernard Shaw's most performed and studied plays, «Arms and the Man» is a classic example of Shaw's comedic wit. Set during the Serbo-Bulgarian war, «Arms and the Man» is a biting social commentary on the conflict that occurs in both love and war. Raina Petkoff, who is engaged to a young soldier by the name of Sergius, has a romantic notion of war. That is until an escaping soldier by the name of Bluntschli tries to convince her otherwise.

"Man and Superman" is George Bernard Shaw's response to the request of his fans to write a Don Juan themed play. This four-act drama often preformed without or with an abbreviated version of the lengthy third act can be seen as a simple comedy of manners or, as Shaw had intended, something quite more, an exposition of Nietzsche's philosophical ideas of the «Superman.» «Man and Superman» is considered to be one of Shaw's greatest works, a masterpiece of dramatic literature.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) is revered as one of the great British dramatists, credited not only with memorable works, but the revival of the then-suffering English theatre. Shaw was born in Dublin, Ireland, left mostly to his own devices after his mother ran off to London to pursue a musical career. He educated himself for the most part, and eventually worked for a real estate agent. This experience founded in him a concern for social injustices, seeing poverty and general unfairness afoot, and would go on to address this in many of his works. In 1876, Shaw joined his mother in London where he would finally attain literary success, and went on to win the Nobel Prize for literature in 1925. He used the stage to deliver messages to his audiences in the hope of bettering society. Shaw's vision was not just to reconcile issues within his society, but to encourage mankind to strive for a sort of perfection close to divinity. He did not ask questions about the present, but envisioned an alternate reality altogether. Contained in this volume are three of Shaw's lesser known works: «The Inca of Perusalem», «Augustus Does His Bit», and «Annajanska, the Bolsheik Empress».

"Pygmalion" is considered to be one of George Bernard Shaw's greatest works. It is the story of how the arrogant phonetics professor Henry Higgins teaches the lowly flower girl Eliza Doolittle to lose her cockney accent and speak like a lady. «Pygmalion» is a witty comedic play that examines the artificiality of social class distinctions and shows that it takes more than just talking like a lady to become one.
