Sample text

I never really loved him [Anderson] before: I only pretended to, like most wives. He never could have taught me himself what love is. But you taught me. And now I love him. Isn't that funny? Richard: Quite right. He is a better man than I am. Bernard Shaw: a Critical View Judith: But I wish I could have taught you to love too. Is that wicked, do you think? Richard: If it is, then I shall always remain the Devil's Disciple. Essie: Oh do, dear Dick, please. 5 But he abandoned this as hopeless and ended the play instead, after the briefest of exchanges between Dick and Judith, with a triumphant crowd-scene and Dick chaired from the market-place.

It was partly for this reason that he was so impatient with those who preferred it to what were, for him, more significant and characteristic works. He protested vigorously to Mrs Richard Mansfield, whose husband had made such a success with The Devil's Disciple in America: you may NOT say that you like the Devil's Disciple better than 'C & C'. The D's D is a melodrama, made up of all the stale Adelphi tricks .... Anybody could make a play that way. But 'C & C' is the first & only adequate dramatization of the greatest man that ever lived.

The 'tendency' of Arms and the Man was to deflate romantic illusions about war and replace them with the reality. But on closer inspection, many of Pleasant/ Unpleasant Shaw's tendentious jokes turn out to be innocent after all. 'I am quite aware', Shaw proclaims with pride, that the much criticised Swiss officer in Arms and The Man is not a conventional stage soldier. He suffers from want of food and sleep; his nerves go to pieces after three days under fire, ending in the horrors of a rout and pursuit; he has found by experience that it is more important to have a few bits of chocolate to eat in the field than cartridges for his revolver.
