About the Author:

H.H. Munro, also known by his pseudonym Saki (1870-1916), was a prolific Scottish author of the Edwardian era. He wrote The Chronicles of Clovis, When William Came: A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns, and Complete Stories and Novels Of Saki. At age 44, Munro volunteered as a soldier during World War I, enlisting in the 22nd Battalion, Royal Fusiliers. He wrote a number of short stories from the trenches.

Synopsis:

Saki (Hector Hugo Munroe) is perhaps the most graceful spokesman for England's "golden afternoon" - the slow and peaceful years before World War I. This volume contains the whole of Saki's work - all the short stories, his three novels and three plays.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. 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. Although, like so many of his generation, he died tragically young, in action on the Western Front, his reputation as a writer 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 contemporary upper-class Edwardian world, Saki is one of the few undisputed English masters of the short story and one of the great writers of a bygone era. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
