The Dancing Man of the Period

The Dancing Man of the Period

George du Maurier

From English Society

“Been dancin’ at all?”

“Dancin’? Not I! Catch me dancin’ in a house where there ain’t a smokin'-room! I’m off, directly”

Like Dancing Men and Too Late, this work depicts idle young men of the upper class whose major occupation was hunting, gambling, attending dances where they might meet a wealthy young woman to marry.
