Item Details

The three novels which make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family between 1886 and 1920. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women. This is the only critical edition of the work available, with Notes that explain contemporary artistic and literary allusions and define the slang of the time.

Wonderful series of 3 books and 2 interludes that chronicles 3 generations of the Forsyte family, especially contrasting those who love property with those who love beauty.

Absolutely wonderful novel. I loved the way passion in particular was portrayed. The two movies made based on this book are great too.
