About this deal

We are responsible for each other'

A policeman interrupts a rich family's dinner to question them about the suicide of a young working-class girl. he began writing novels, and with his third and fourth novels, The Good Companions and Angel Pavement, he scored a great success and established an international reputation. The phrasing may sound old-fashioned, but the point is not; given that, in the modern period, we’re prone to expecting an apocalypse any day now, Priestley’s play, and his suggestion that if it comes the guilty party will not be them but us, is quite timely.

History that ignores the god and the altar is as false as history that could forget the sword and the wheel. Doctor Gortler, a displaced German scientist, arrives at the Double Bull Inn run by Sam Shipley and his widowed daughter Sally Pratt in Grindle Moor, North Yorkshire. The inversion of the detective genre, in addition to the accentuated idea of morality is one that makes this text special and one worthy of study in schools year on year. B. Priestley masterpiece is joined by three other powerful plays Time and the Conways, I Have Been Here Before and The Linden Tree. He joined the army in 1914, and in 1919, on receiving an ox-officers' grant, went to Trinity Hall, Cambridge.

Whether that's putting new work on stages across the world or supporting our outreach and learning programmes, every purchase you make really does make a difference. For this reason, reading the plays in succession, it felt repetitive to me - maybe it's different on stage, however. Priestly's cyclical use of time honestly made me a lot less hopeful for these same issues that we are dealing with today, which is why I'm glad I finished with I Have Been Here Before: the characters tear themselves out of their fated timelines and we don't know what comes next, except that it'll be different from before. Our team is made up of book lovers who are dedicated to sourcing and providing the best books for kids.

All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you! In the last play, The Linden Tree, the effect of the passage of time on human beings and families is explored in a conventional manner, making it the most "ordinary" of the lot. Keats is one of the major figures in the second generation of Romantic poets and was considered by Tennyson to be the greatest poet of the 19th century. Subsequently he found work as theatre reviewer with the Daily News, and also contributed to the Spectator, the Challenge and Nineteenth Century.It's once again Kay's birthday party, this time the fortieth, but the occasion is far from pleasant: the Conways have lost their wealth, relationships have formed and broken down, and most of the family (except Alan) have become disillusioned and embittered.
