The Freelands

by John Galsworthy

"Liberty's a glorious feast." With this quotation begins a story in which it appears that in the three generations of the Freelands, mother, four sons, grandchildren, flourish all the elements of conservatism and revolt against the existing order which allows the petty tyranny of the English land system. Derek, the young grandson, is the leading spirit for the peasants in rebellion against this particular case of petty tyranny and is tragically unsuccessful. His love for his cousin, beautifully portrayed, lightens the story and gives promise for a brighter future for him in some newer land where there seems to be more possibility of enjoying the "glorious feast."
