(From the publisher):
These three impressive plays by John Galsworthy all display everyday aspects of English social life and ways of thought during, roughly, the first quarter of the present century. In Escape
Captain Denant, serving a sentence for what was only a serious crime through bad luck, escapes from Dartmoor and asks aid of various people, each of whom acts differently to the situation. The Eldest Son
deals with the problem of conventional sex-morality and class tradition. The Skin Game
shows a quarrel between an old-fashioned and financially hard-pressed landowner and an aggressive parvenu
manufacturer, leading to tragedy through lack of understanding. All three plays finely exemplify Galsworthy's dramatic power, his breadth of sympathy and his gentle humour as a social philosopher.
