CHAPTER XIII
THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY

in two novels of the second sequence, The White Monkey and Swan Song. In Fleur we have a charming but slightly perturbing portrait of the ` girl of the period,' and in Soames Forsyte, her father, we have a central figure which, if not precisely heroic, comes at times very near greatness.
Among the subjects which troubled the compassionate heart of John Galsworthy was the severity of the penal system. To popularize his views he wrote two powerful plays, Justice and Escape.. Another play, Loyalties, showed the strength, both for good and for evil, of men's loyalties to their creed, class, profession, or code, as the case might be.
In person Galsworthy was strikingly good-looking, tall, slight, with well-cut features and thick grey hairthe ideal Englishman of stage, screen, and romance.
Enoch Arnold Bennett, 1867-1931, better known as Arnold Bennett, was an outstanding figure among the novelists of his age. Born in the Potteries district of Staffordshire, which he was afterwards to make famous in his stories of the 'Five Towns,' he was educated for the law, but forsook his legal studies for journalism. His art was conscious and elaborate, his realism sometimes squalid and sometimes poignant. Although his most successful books dealt with a somewhat grey and shabby aspect of life, Bennett himself, as his journals and Press articles attest, was a connoisseur in the art of living. A skilful amateur musician and French scholar, he was a well-known figure, conspicuous by his drooping forelock, prominent teeth, and slight stammer.
Great was the contrast between John Galsworthy and Gilbert Keith Chesterton, 1874-1936, though both
