Unlike A Call to Arms, there is no preface to Wandering (1926). Marston Anderson says that the heroes of many of this second group are “disappointed reformers.” The New-Year Sacrifice has in it a sense of “blessing” or “benediction.” In the Tavern replays the issues of Hometown, in that the narrator has come back to his old town and finds himself talking to an old friend. The centre of A Happy Family is a writer who has been married for five years, motivated by cash constraints; Soap, satirising the family, focuses more on the impact of new social ideas and reaction against them. The Eternal Lamp and A Warning to the People deal with confinement and the crowd. The Venerable Schoolmaster Gao, which returns to some of the issues of education, discusses the making and unmaking of identity.
