This is the annotated edition including the rare biographical essay by Edwin E. Slosson called "H. G. Wells - A Major Prophet Of His Time". Stephen Stratton writes the story of his life and love for his young son, the man who is going to be. It resolves itself largely into a study of the character of Lady Mary Justin, who wanted all that money and power could bring, and so married a rich man, meaning to keep her love for Stephen and her own absolute personal freedom. She has and keeps the love of both men, but the impossibility of the situation she learns by bitter experience which ends in tragedy. Of course there are serious and thought provoking discussions of the nature of man and woman and the laws which govern them, which will be interesting to thoughtful readers generally.
