The Disappearance Of Crispina Umberleigh. Old George, the roan cob, and Bowkers pup were his sole companions in a world that was otherwise frostily silent and hostile. Of the mistress of the farm he saw nothing. Old George and Bowkers pup stood watching him a silent farewell from the yard. He could scarcely fancy that he would ever come back, and he felt a throb of compunction for those two humble friends who would wait wistfully for his return. Some day perhaps the real Tom would come back, and there would be wild wonderment among those simple farm folks as to the identity of the shadowy guest they had harboured under their roof. Hector Hugh Munro 18 December 1870 14 November 1916, better known by the pen name Saki and also frequently as H. Munro, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirize Edwardian society and culture. He is considered by English teachers and scholars as a master of the short story, and often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling, he himself influenced A. Milne, Noël Coward and P. Saki's H. Munro humerous short stories reflect British humor of the 1900s in all its subtley and play on English. Clearly to this reader, Saki is the pioneer of wonderfully contrived English family names, an inspiration two decades later for the humor of P. However, short stories tend to be selected at random: perhaps it was shortsighted to produce a book of short stories without an effective contents list or indexing system. Saki's stories form a connective tissue between Oscar Wilde's 1890s and Evelyn Waugh's 1920s. Firstly because anyone who loves Wodehouse and hasn't read Saki is missing a trick, and secondly because, as Will Self noted in a 2007 documentary, Saki's stories are highly relevant to any society in which convention is confused with morality, and all societies confuse convention with morality, so he'll always be relevant. Another thing that recommends Saki to the modern reader and perhaps explains why he remains somewhat obscure is his ability to shock. Even when Saki is not writing explicitly horrific stories, however, the unease is present. Listen free to Saki Saki - The Short Stories The Unrest-Cure, Sredni Vashtar and more. 7 tracks 83:20.
