John Galsworthy was one of the most popular English novelists and playwrights, the author famous for The Forsyte Saga. His literally career began at the age of seventeen when Galsworthy studied at the Oxford University. His works made him one of the leading authors in British literature. Nobel Prize winning English novelist and playwright, John Galsworthy is remembered for his stories evoking Victorian and Edwardian upper middle-class life. First performed in London in 1907, Galsworthy's play Joy is linked with the author's another play, The Silver Box, by the single idea: a matter which touches ourselves is 'a special case'. Free from social questions and mostly undramatic, the play tells the story of choleric Colonel Hope, his energetic wife and very wilfull young daughter – Joy. But what will happen when Mrs. Hope's niece does the most shocking thing – pays them a visit with her lover? A classic example of Galsworthy' delicate, but naturalistic style, the story captures the readers' attention at once.
