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

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. The Forsytes possess all the features typical of their class as a whole, and they have to obey the laws which govern it. He who dares to disobey these laws is ostracized by society.

The Forsyte Saga is a series of three novels and two interludes published between 1906 and 1921 by John Galsworthy. They chronicle the vicissitudes of the leading members of an upper-middle-class British family. In a short interlude after The Man of Property, Galsworthy delved into the newfound friendship between Old Jolyon Forsyte (June's grandfather) and Irene, who has left Soames. This attachment gives Old Jolyon pleasure, but exhausts his strength. He leaves Irene money in his will with Young Jolyon, his son as trustee.

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.
