John Galsworthy, one of the greatest British writers, was a representative of the literary tradition, which has regarded the novel as a lawful instrument of social propaganda. The Forsyte Saga is a history of three generations of the Forsyte family from the eighties of the 19th century up to the twenties of the 20th century. The Man of Property shows two successive generations of a rich upper-middle-class family at the end of the 19th century. It is a social novel: the author shows the Forsyte family as a small unit of English upper-middle-class society of his own time

Galsworthy John The Forsyte Saga - Complete. PREFACE: The Forsyte Saga was the title originally destined for that part of it which is called The Man of Property ; and to adopt it for the collected chronicles of the Forsyte family has indulged the Forsytean tenacity that is in all of us.

Galsworthy John The Forsyte Saga - Complete. The word Saga might be objected to on the ground that it connotes the heroic and that there is little heroism in these pages

AUTHOR: When John Galsworthy (1867-1933) died, he was at the height of his popularity with the reading public, and had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932. Already derided by modernist writers like Woolf and Lawrence for his old-fashioned values, interest in his works fell away sharply. The revival came in 1967, when the BBC Television adaptation of 'The Forsyte Saga' firmly established his place in literary history once more.

When The Forsyte Saga was shown on television in 1967 it was hugely successful. The nation was gripped by the masterful visual telling of the Forsyte family's troubled story and adapted its activities to suit the next transmission. The Forsyte Saga comprising The Man of Property, In Chancery and To Let, is here produced by Wordsworth for the first time in a single volume. Initially, the narrative centres on Soames Forsyte - a successful solicitor living in London with his beautiful wife Irene. A pillar of the late Victorian upper middle class, materially wealthy, his appears to be a golden existence endowed with all the necessary possessions for a 'Man of Property', but beneath this very proper exterior lies a core of unhappiness and brutal relationships. The marriage of Soames and Irene disintegrates in bitter recrimination, creating a feud within the family that will have far-reaching consequences.

I have been reading sections of this book for almost 55 years. With each reading, and definitely at this time of life, I can appreciate each and every character. Forsyte is Galworthy's synonym for all that England aspired to in his day. It could be adapted to be all that the US grew to admire.
But, in my opinion, it is not so much about the theme of OWNERSHIP or PROPERTY as it is a perfectly calibrated view of life as it passes through us.
The references to nature, to Beauty, to the appreciation of Family, Property not for possession, but for what one can Gift to others grow throughout the novel for each character. Reading the novel four times in a lifetime offers one insight into our own stage of life, our own values, and how we grow to describe Beauty.

Having recently seen the Forsyte series on PBS, I chose to get the complete works when offered to me by Amazon. First of all, I must acknowledge how wonderful it is to read such masterful writing. No one writes like this today. This writing is a symphony of words. The plot and the character development was exceptional. I found it hard to put it down and when I wasn't reading I was daydreaming about the characters. The TV series was very faithful to the book therefore being able to pick the actors was for me a plus. Simply a great reading experience.

THIS REVIEW IS NOT FOR NOVEL, WHICH I LOVE. IT'S FOR BOOK FORMAT ONLY. If you are buying the edition with lady in white dress and lilac sash on cover (easy way to describe), which was published 2017 by Okitoks Press, please be aware that only the book size is "large format" not the text. The font has to be something like 8 pt. and is impossible for me to read comfortably. Putting that size font into a book the size of a piano music book is a strange idea of large format! I read alot of reviews before choosing this one, and struck out. Finding same reviews for different editions very frustrating. I'm missing the days of abundant book stores to browse.

Great historical fiction, especially if you enjoy dysfunctional families. I love the ironic tone the narrator takes towards the Forsytes, and was pleased to see that some characters came around and learned their lessons... and some did not. A few minor typos, but a pretty readable Kindle edition.

Many readers may view the English novelists of the turn of last century as sterile and dry. This is a mistake made by the newer generations who have been beguiled by television and modern film making. One gains understanding and perspective of the past through the eyes of various writers and we can begin to see that so many of our problems in this world are of our own making. The social constrictions, the injustices wrought by the well meaning guardians of society, even the arts and sciences can conspire against us. Yet the human condition remains today just as it was well over a hundred years ago.

This novel is the first in a series of writings, three novels and several shorter stories, that make up the Forsyte Saga, a serious reading of the change from Victorian to Edwardian England and beyond. For those who wish to become authors, a serious reading of these works reveals how stories may be told. For the more historical minded, one comes to appreciate the changes in society and how they are wrought. John Galsworthy is a splendid writer and worthy of reading on many different levels.

This was and is surely worthy of the Nobel prize for literature. It's a shame they don't award this prize to more worthy authors today and instead go for the popular and politically correct authors/books. It's a good book about three generations of one complicated family. Long but well worth the read. And then, try the PBS Masterpiece Theater series of the same name.

Terrific read. The book, as usual, is much more detailed and delicate than the BBC series ( which I also enjoyed). I have already recommended it to family and friends. I would note that the particular format of this book made it more difficult to read than a more standard book format. The pages are large, wide and filled with quite small printing making it too easy to lose one's place. I found the writing and story enthralling enough to persevere, but others may be sorely daunted. The writer deserves a 5 star rating; the format less.
