Five Tales

by John Galsworthy

In these stories Mr. Galsworthy returns to the type of character which he so masterfully depicted in those great stories of English social life "The Man of Property," "The Country House," etc. Each story is built around a single dominant character. Thus in A Stoic, the old financier, swollen, short-breathed, apoplectic, having to be lifted from his chair to address his boards and directorates, still dominates them by his reputation and buccaneer-like tactics.
