I first read it as a textbook as a graduate and got swept by it at the first reading itself! Typically 'Shavian'. its originality struck me so much that I find it still interesting after fifty years of my first reading. Witty dialogues, non-conventional treatment of a hero and exposing the melodrama of love and the true nature of heroism and particularly, war heroes...this book will remain forever a compulsory reading for theater lovers across the world.

I was determined to read this book because of the title's allusion to ancient Roman poetry, and because of Shaw. I was also apprehensive because plays scare me, but, as I soon found out, there was nothing to be scared of. It was a wonderful play, funny too. I'm glad I read it.

One of the finest books i have ever read. I first read this play as graduate student in the Year 1990 and since then read it many number of times over the years. Though the play was written more than 100 years back, very apt for today's world
