Publishers Description: The Forsyte Saga is a series of three novels and two interludes published between 1906 and 1921 by John Galsworthy, an English author winner of the Nobel Prize in literature. The book chronicles the vicissitudes of the leading members of an upper class British family. Only a few generations appart from their farmer ancestors, the family members are keenly aware of their status as "new money". The main character, Soames Forsyte, sees himself as a "man of property" by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessionsbut this might not succeed in bringing him pleasure... Some fragments of the saga, as well as the complete story, have been adapted to the screen on numerous occasions.
