Let us remember that Saki wrote the majority of his works in a turn-of-the-century Edwardian England in the early 20th Century. His fiction is famous for the way that it satirises Edwardian society with its social mores and customs. Other British works that were published at a similar point in time that are worthy of serious attention are Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster's brilliant novels such as Howard's End, A Room With a View and A Passage to India; To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf and A Portait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce. Each of these authors are considered as Modernist experts in their own right, so you might be interested in reading some of these classics and looking at Modernism as a literary movement and seeing what unites them. Happy reading!
