John Galsworthy (1867 – 1933) was an English author and winner of the 1932 Nobel Prize in Literature.  He is best known for his series of novels, The Forsyth Saga.


This week’s text is Galsworthy’s essay “Evolution” (1910).  It is about the end of the horse-drawn carriage era and the difficulties faced by soon-to-be displaced cabmen.  It is an evolution that was repeated many times, for many occupations, throughout the twentieth-century.
