Since I am a literature student, this was something I found very interesting in my syllabus.The title of the play has been taken from the opening lines of Dryden's translation of Virgil's Aeneid.The aim of Shaw in writing this play is just the reverse of that of Virgil in writing his epic Aeneid...Read More

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun.

Amazingly gripping!

It’s a play you will, not only enjoy reading but will perhaps remember for the rest of your life. It is perhaps the most studied and acted of all GBS ...Read More

One of Shaw’s extremely famous plays was ‘Arms and the Man’ (1894). GBS uses his natural disposition to comedy & his humour as a vehicle to criticize the obsolete ideals of society in this play. This play is a comedy of disparity between ideals and reality. Archibald Henderson ...Read More
