The Forsyte Saga Synopsis
The Saga chronicles the way of life of the leading members of a large upper-middle-class English family. Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, its members are keenly aware of their status as ‘new money’. The main character, the solicitor and connoisseur Soames Forsyte, sees himself as a ‘man of property’ by virtue of his ability to accumulate material possessions, but that does not succeed in bringing him pleasure.
Galsworthy wrote two more trilogies and several more interludes based around the titular family. The resulting series is collectively titled The Forsyte Chronicles.
