More Description

John Galsworthy (1867-1933), novelist, dramatist, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is most widely known as the author of "The Forsyte Saga," but recent productions--notably of "Strife" at the National Theatre--testify to the power that his plays still exert over modern audiences and the strength and relevance of the issues he raised.

In "Strife," Galsworthy deals with industrial relations; in "Justice," with the effects of imprisonment--it was one of the few plays to bring about real reform. "The Eldest Son" is also about injustice--one law for the rich, another for the poor; "The Skin Game," Galsworthy's first commercial success, presents class conflict; while "Loyalties," "a crime drama," is about racial prejudice.
