First American edition. No jacket, ink name on front endpaper. 1926 Hard Cover. 115, 112, 97 pp. "English novelist and playwright, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932, Galsworthy became known for his portrayal of the British upper middle class and for his social satire. Galsworthy's plays sometimes possess an atmosphere of poetic feeling that is far from trivial. In The Forest Galsworthy brands the inconsiderate spirit of greed that, for crass purposes, exploits the heroism of the British world-conquering mind. The Show represents the defenselessness of the individual against the press in a family tragedy where brutal newspaper curiosity functions like a deaf and unchecked machine, removing the possibility of any one being held responsible for the resultant evil."
