Arms and the Man

by George Bernard Shaw


This is a very light, absurdist, quick-read of a drama that’s a little too ridiculous for my tastes. On the one hand, it’s too short to develop any of the characters sufficiently, making it impossible to sympathize with anyone. But on the other hand, its shortness is an advantage since it lessens the amount of time you have to waste reading it. It’s the 3rd Shaw play I’ve read, and for a light relationship study I would recommend Candida over this one; it’s not nearly as superficial.
