John Galsworthy, „posledný viktoriánsky spisovateľ“, ako ho niekedy nazývajú, vytvoril románmi svojho forsytovského cyklu mohutnú stavbu, ktorá je skôr mauzóleom ako pomníkom odchádzajúcej epoche a ľuďom, čo ju vytvorili. Forsytovci, oná „prevažná väčšina“ anglického národa, poriadkumilovná, konzervatívna, majetná, stali sa osobitným pojmom — veď sú stelesnením typu, ktorý kedysi tvoril chrbticu jednej zo svetových veľmocí. A jednako ani tento rod, to živé stelesnenie stredostavovskej solidnosti, neunikol pred rušivou, všetko rúcajúcou silou Krásy, ktorú stretávame v pôvabnej Irene a jej tragickom ľúbostnom príbehu. „Forsytovská sága" je dosiaľ živým svedectvom rozprávačského majstrovstva a imaginatívnej sily tohto autora.

The saga chronicles the lives of three generations of a moneyed middle-class English family at the turn of the century. As published in 1922, The Forsyte Saga consisted of the novel The Man of Property (1906), the interlude (a short story) “Indian Summer of a Forsyte” (1918), the novel In Chancery (1920), the interlude “Awakening” (1920), and the novel To Let (1921).

Soames Forsyte, a solicitor and “man of property,” is married to the beautiful, penniless Irene, who rebels against his values. She falls in love with Philip Bosinney, the French architect whom Soames had hired to build a country house. Soames rapes Irene, whom he considers his property, and proceeds to ruin Bosinney, who subsequently dies in a traffic accident in London. Irene returns to Soames.

In Chancery concerns the love between Irene and Young Jolyon Forsyte, Soames’s cousin. (The story of the last days of Old Jolyon, his father, is told in “Indian Summer of a Forsyte.”) Irene and Soames divorce; she marries Jolyon and bears a son, Jon. Soames and his second wife, Annette Lamotte, have a daughter, Fleur.

In To Let, Fleur and Jon grow up and fall in love; Jolyon informs his son of Irene and Soames’s past relationship. Although Fleur is determined to marry Jon, he refuses. Fleur becomes the wife of Michael Mont, son of a baronet. Jolyon dies, and Irene leaves England. Soames discovers that Annette is involved in an affair with a Frenchman, as Irene had been. ( )

With the three novels and two short stories that make up 'The Forsyte Saga' Galsworthy creates a family epic that chronicles the transformation and upheaval of Great Britain in the late 19th and early 20th century. Accomplishing this, too, with hardly any mention of World War I.

The ten elder Forsyte children entered London in the early 19th century with their inheritance and through the miracles of business and sound investment amassed fortunes. Eldest sister Ann is an indomitable matriarch who binds the family together by reminding them of their connections to each other, her unmarried and widowed sisters Hester and Julia provide comic relief and an admirable innocence. They keep house for their agoraphobic brother Timothy, who rarely appears. Eldest brother 'Old' Jolyon made a fortune in tea and dotes on his granddaughter June the same way he doted on her father 'Young' Jolyon before Young Jolyon ran away with her governess. James is a solicitor and his children Soames and Winnifred make poor marriages. James' twin brother Swithin dresses fine and daydreams about charming women; Roger has two children, George and Francie, that round out parlor and club scenes, while Nicholas and Susan contribute faint commentary and additional cousins.

The second and third generations grow farther apart, providing the background for not one, but two secret love affairs between Forsyte cousins of estranged branches. is saved by turning it all in to focus on Soames' contemplation on the death of the last of his father's generation. Not all Forsytes are equal: Soames Forsyte is our star, with Young Jolyon and Irene providing important balance and motivation to his worldview and actions. Romance is thrilling, but tracking Soames' development as he deals with uncomfortable emotions and reflects on the changing world around him give the novels more weight than the admittedly superb television adaptions. The effect of the novels is also greater together than apart, the two '20s novels rounding out the tragedy of Soames and Irene. Two more trilogies carry the story to 1933.

A lovely long book. I am glad I finally read this classic. Following three generations of the Forsythe family it provides a look at genteel England from the mid 1800’s to after World War II. I’m still pondering if I am glad the book ended the way it did or another ending would have been preferable. Whatever my opinion is, it is clear the the tight-knit clan was becoming less of an institution as it was replaced by more independent generations. ( )

Nothing in the world is more sure to upset a Forsyte than the discovery that something on which he has stipulated to spend a certain sum has cost more. And this is reasonable, for upon the accuracy of his estimates the whole policy of his life is ordered. If he cannot rely on definite values of property, his compass is amiss; he is adrift upon bitter waters without a helm. (book I: the man of property: part II: chapter XIII: perfection of the house)
For all men of great age, even for all Forsytes, life has had bitter experiences. The passer-by, who sees them wrapped in cloaks of custom, wealth, and comfort, would never suspect that such black shadows had fallen on their roads. (book I: the man of property: part III: chapter VIII: bosinney's departure)
When a man is very old and quite out of the running, he loves to feel secure from the rivalries of youth, for he would still be first in the heart of beauty. (indian summer of a forsyte: I)
By the cigars they smoke, and the composers they love, ye shall know the texture of men's souls. (indian summer of a forsyte: I)
Even grief sobbed itself out in time; only Time was good for sorrow--Time who saw the passing of each mood, each emotion in turn; Time the layer-to-rest. (indian summer of a forsyte: I)
