Abstract:

Hector Hugh Munroe (Saki) had a wonderful imagination. He was fascinated with the intricacies of the mind and the casual influence one can exert over others by the suggestive powers of language. In "The Open Window" perhaps the best known of his stories as it is studied in most of our schools, we see how a young girl's descriptive narrative fuels the imagination of her attentive visitor. In "Child's Play" we find the story of a young boy's struggle for identity amid the conflict with his restrictive guardian. Each film represents the unique art of storytelling that was "Saki."
