The Forsyte Saga : Volume 1 Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

The Forsyte Saga is the first part of John Galsworthy's magnificent, well-loved Forsyte Chronicles, which trace the changing fortunes of the wealthy Forsyte dynasty through fifty years of material triumph and emotional disaster.

The Forsyte Saga begins as the nineteenth century is drawing to a close, and the upper middle classes, with their property and propriety, are becoming a dying section of society.

The Forsytes are blind to this fact, clinging to their conventions and `brilliant respectability'.

As dignified Soames Forsyte struggles to uphold the old moral code in the face of the social revolution resulting from the Great War, his wife Irene's extraordinary beauty causes even more disruption.

The bitter feud between them comes to split the Forsyte family for two generations.
