The complete works of one of England’s greatest Edwardian writers
Saki is perhaps the most graceful spokesman for England’s ‘Golden Afternoon’ – the slow and peaceful years before the First World War. Even supposing, like such a lot of of his generation, he died tragically young, in action on the Western Front, his reputation as a creator continued to grow long after his death. His work is humorous, satiric, supernatural, and macabre, highly individual, full of eccentric wit and unconventional situations. With his great gift as a social satirist of his recent upper-class Edwardian world, Saki is among the few undisputed English masters of the short story and some of the great writers of a bygone era.
