Beasts and Super-Beasts is a collection of short stories, written by Saki (theLiterarypseudonym of Hector Hugh Munro) and first published in 1914. The title parodies that of George Bernard Shaw's Man and Superman.Along with The Chronicles of Clovis, Beasts and Super-Beasts is one of Saki's best-known works. It was his final collection of stories before his death in World War I, and several of its stories, in particular The Open Window, are reprinted frequently in anthologies.The majority of the volume's stories deal in some fashion with animals, providing the source for its title. The character of Clovis Sangrail, featured in earlier works by Saki, appears in several stories. Most of the stories appeared previously in periodicals.Stylistically, Beasts and Super-Beasts displays the simple language, cynicism and wry humor that characterize Saki's earlierLiteraryoutput.
