A Modern Comedy – 1

Аннотация
From preface: In naming this second part of The Forsyte Chronicles "A Modern Comedy" the word Comedy is stretched, perhaps as far as the word Saga was stretched to cover the first part. And yet, what but a comedic view can be taken, what but comedic significance gleaned, of so restive a period as that in which we have lived since the war? An Age which knows not what it wants, yet is intensely preoccupied with getting it, must evoke a smile, if rather a sad one.

The England of 1886, when the Forsyte Saga began, also had no Future, for England then expected its Present to endure, and rode its bicycle in a sort of dream, disturbed only by two bogles–Mr. Gladstone and the Irish Members.
The England of 1926–when the Modern Comedy closes–with one foot in the air and the other in a Morris Oxford, is going round and round like a kitten after its tail, muttering:
