Overview

End of the Chapter - Book I - Maid in Waiting by John Galsworthy

The Forsyte Saga is Galsworthy’s trilogy about the eponymous family and connected lives. These books, as with many of his other works, deal with social class, upper-middle class lives in particular. Although sympathetic to his characters, he highlights their insular, snobbish, and acquisitive attitudes and their suffocating moral codes. He is viewed as one of the first writers of the Edwardian era who challenged some of the ideals of society depicted in the preceding literature of Victorian England. The depiction of a woman in an unhappy marriage furnishes another recurring theme in his work. John Galsworthy was an English novelist and playwright. This is Volume one of his most notable work The Forsyte Saga. He went on to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932.
