The Forsyte saga
Galsworthy, John
Adult Fiction GALSWORTH

Comments  Summary  Contents  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

This is the uniform title for Galsworthy's The Man of Property, In Chancery, and To Let, available as a Forsyte Saga threesome in several paperback editions, of which this one is the cheapest. Galsworthy wrote the The Man of Property in 1906, looking back from his Edwardian desk at a thriving upper-middle class London family in full Victorian flower. Character, the choices the Forsytes make in seeking to rule their destinies, the consequences that unfold , the power-or failure-of an individual to change, are at the heart of this saga, although the first novel stood alone until after World War I, when the prolific Galsworthy returned to the Forsytes for the subsequent five volumes, all published in the 1920s. My favorite saga.-Margaret Heilbrun, Library Journal (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
