9780141184494: Complete Short Stories (Saki) (Penguin Modern Classics)

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. The stories are humorous, satiric, supernatural, and macabre, highly individual, full of eccentric wit and unconventional situations. With his great gift as a social satirist of his contemporaryupper-class Edwardian world, Saki is one of the few undisputed English masters of the short story.

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.

About the Author:

Saki is the pen name of Hector Hugh Munro (1870-1916), a British writer lauded as a master of the short story, whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirize Edwardian society and culture.

Review:

"One of the funniest writers in the English language . . . Saki was incapable of writing a dull sentence, but the final lines of his short stories are works of art in themselves." —Daily Telegraph
