This 1911 collection of well-plotted, acerbic short stories showcases his mastery of comic repartee. The tales recount the escapades of an irreverent socialite, Clovis Sangrail-a forerunner to the aristocratic Bertie Wooster of Jeeves fame. Saki's satires remain remarkably contemporary, offering paradoxical combinations of good-natured irony and cheerful cruelty.

MunroCriticism, interpretation, etc"Saki's short stories have been much reprinted as well as adapted for radio, stage, and television, but his novels, The Unbearable Bassington and When William Came , are almost unknown, his journalism and travel writing forgotten, and his plays rarely performed. Sandie Byrne argues that his reputation has been unfairly overshadowed by his predecessor Oscar Wilde, contemporary George Bernard Shaw, and successors P.G. Wodehouse and Evelyn Waugh." "In a well-meaning introduction to the Penguin Complete Saki, Noel Coward reinforced the received image of Saki's work as celebrating an Edwardian or even Victorian milieu of privilege, luxury, and affectation; comedies of manners and light satire. Byrne shows that Saki's writing was no nostalgic evocation of a lost golden age, and that he was rarely concerned with the charm and delight Coward describes. His preoccupations were with England, the values of Empire, and the dangerous beauty of the feral ephebe. The threat to the first two of these triggered his alleged metamorphosis from cosmopolitan cynic and dandy-about-town to patriotic, even jingoistic, NCO, in a manner worthy of his blackest humor."--BOOK JACKET.

He was fascinated with the intricacies of the mind and the casual influence one can exert over others by the suggestive powers of language. In "The Open Window" perhaps the best known of his stories as it is studied in most of our schools, we see how a young girl's descriptive narrative fuels the imagination of her attentive visitor. In "Child's Play" we find the story of a young boy's struggle for identity amid the conflict with his restrictive guardian. Each film represents the unique art of storytelling that was "Saki."1411ocn630571405visu19590.77Toys of peaceTelevision adaptationsDramatization of a short story by H.H.
