Fry, The Dark is Light Enough – A Winter Comedy.

Fry, The Dark is Light Enough - A Winter Comedy.

Fry, Christopher. The Dark is Light Enough – A Winter Comedy. London, Oxford University Press, 1954. 19.3cm x 13cm. 103 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition with minor external wear and some foxing on the dustjacket.

The Dark is Light Enough is set in an Austrian country house in the winter of 1848-49 during a futile uprising of the Hungarians against Austrian rule. The play is concerned with the impact this rebellion has on the inhabitants of the house. Foremost of them is the countess-an eminent lady of wit, independence, compassion and honesty. At the bottom of the heap is a highly intelligent scoundrel with no character at all. Apart from several other well-drawn people, representing either amusing worldliness or earnest convictions, the play concentrates on the ordeal of the countess’ conscience. Although she is above petty acrimonies, although she overflows with forgiveness, she is grievously hurt by the callousness of the scoundrel’s unprincipled behavior. (Goodreads).
