The nine novels which make up The Forsyte Chronicles -- one of the most popular and enduring works of 20th century literature -- chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family between 1886 and 1920. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women. The author has drawn a fascinating and accurately detailed picture of the British propertied classOften incorrectly called The Forsyte Saga - the nine novel sequence properly known as The Forsyte Chronicles contains three trilogies- of which the first trilogy is The Forsyte Saga (The Man of Property - In Chancery- To Let). The second trilogy- A Modern Comedy (The White Monkey- The Silver Spoon- Swan Song) is followed by the third and concluding trilogy- End of the Chapter (Maid in Waiting- Flowering Wilderness- One More River).John Galsworthy (1867-1933) devoted virtually his entire professional career tocreating a fictional but entirely representative family of propertied Victorians- the Forsytes. He made their lives and times- loves and losses- fortunes and deaths so real that readers accused him of including as characters in his drama real individuals whom they knew. He was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.… (plus d'informations)

Obsessive old man
she left forty years ago
stop spying on her. ( )
  Eggpants | Jun 25, 2020 |
This is a bitter sweet entry in the series. Soames is in the US, having spent the last 6 months travelling around the world with Fleur, in order to help her recover her spirits after the events of the previous book. While sitting near a statue in Washington DC, he hears some people approach, one of whom is Jon Forsyte. He's not seen the young man in a number of years now, but he remains anxious to avoid him and, more importantly, that he not meet Fleur. Back at the hotel he discovers that Jon, his wife and Irene are all staying in the same hotel. That severely shocks the old man and he is unable to get Irene out of his mind. After another tense day when Jon and Michael meet, but Fleur does not seem Jon, Soames hears a piano playing and knows that it is Irene. He cannot resist seeing if it really is her and so the memories come flooding back. He still cannot understand her, they remain as incompatible as ever, and yet, he cannot hate her either. It is a very short interlude, and yet is is very telling, they remain chalk and cheese and yet he cannot quite get her out of his hair. ( )

This is very sweet, and short. It is of Jon and how he meets someone who helps him get over Fleur. Which is a good thing, as he deserved better than how he was treated there. This also serves to introduce Francis Wilmot, who goes on to feature in the next novel in the series. This was pleasant as a read. ( )
