The Forsyte Saga

John Galsworthy

The three novels which make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commerical upper-middle class Forsyte family between 1886 and 1920. Soames Forsyte is the brilliantly portrayed central figure, a Victorian who outlives the age, and whose baffled passion for his beautiful but unresponsive wife Irene reverberates throughout the saga.

Written with both compassion and ironic detachment, Galsworthys masterly narrative examines not only the familys fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women in an intensely competitive male world. Above all, Galsworthy is concerned with the conflict at the heart of English culture between the soulless materialism of wealth and property and the humane instincts of love, beauty, and art.

But "The Man of Property", the first book of the " The Forsyte Saga", by John Galsworthy is more a critical look into the family of Forsyte, an embodiment of Victorian middle class, whose test is exhibited in the power of never being able to give themselves up to anything soul and body and the 'sense of property'. .
