These are not archetypal love stories full of sentimentality, but the clever, poignant, humorous and even romantic stories set in an age of chivalry and honour. There are aspects of humour and respect in "Mr. & Mrs. Dove", love from afar in the poignant tale, "Angela", and a woman clouded in mystery in "The Sphinx Without a Secret". Also comedy from an inebriated Tom Smart talking to the furniture in "The Bagman's Story" from Dickens' Pickwick Papers, tragedy from Phyllis and her love for a German Hussar, greed from the parents of Joe who want him to marry the wealthy Polly instead of his choice, "Genefer", and drugs when two young people fall in love under the influence of hashish in a little known but ahead of its time story "Perilous Play". LISTINGS: The Sphinx Without a Secret by Oscar Wilde. Mr & Mrs Dove by Katherine Mansfield. Angela by W.S. Gilbert. Perilous Play by Louisa May Alcott. The Singing Lesson by Katherine Mansfield. The Melancholy Hussar of the German Legion by Thomas Hardy. Genefer by Sabine Baring-Gould. The Bagman's Story from Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.
