John Galsworthy emerged as one of the most popular British dramatists and fiction writers of the earliest twentieth century, creating works such as the enduring popular Forsyte Saga, which consisted of a series of interlinked novels and short stories. Although Galsworthy is best remembered for his novels, he was also famed as a playwright. "The Fugitive" gained attention in its day as a gripping work of suspense and realism.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 4 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
