Annotation Well-known as a playwright and novelist, John Galsworthy was also a passionate patriot and supporter of Britain during World War I. Although he himself was too old to engage in active combat, he volunteered the use of his family estate to be used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers, and he helped the war effort by penning an array of stories and essays with pro-British themes. Another Sheaf is the second of two such collections of Galsworthy's wartime work.

Annotation Famed English playwright and novelist John Galworthy, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932, first gained critical and popular acclaim for a series of novels and short stories called The Forsyte Saga, which followed multiple generations of a nouveau riche family of aristocrats. Fraternity focuses on the intricate dynamics of family relationships and romantic entanglements, rendered in Galsworthy's inimitably nuanced style.

"John Galsworthy first published in 1897 with a collection of short stories entitled “The Four Winds”. For the next 7 years he published these and all works under his pen name John Sinjohn. It was only upon the death of his father and the publication of “The Island Pharisees” in 1904 that he published as John Galsworthy. His first play was The Silver Box, an immediate success when it debuted in 1906 and was followed by “The Man of Property" later that same year and was the first in the Forsyte trilogy. Whilst today he is far more well know as a Nobel Prize winning novelist then he was considered a playwright dealing with social issues and the class system. We publish here ‘The Fugitive’ a great example of both his writing and his demonstration of how the class system worked at the time.
