Джордж Бернард Шоу - ирландский прозаик, известный литературный критик и самых прославленный - после Шекспира - драматург, писавший на английском языке. «Оружие и человек» - это из самых знаменитых пьес Бернарда Шоу в трёх действиях. В основе данной аркой и остроумной комедии лежит идея разоблачения несерьёзного отношения к жизни, в частности, лицемерной романтизации войны. Автор призывает противопоставить подобному мировоззрению рациональный реализм, «философию действительности», которая способна решать проблемы по существу. Читайте зарубежную литературу в оригинале!
