John Galsworthy's The Forsyte Saga chronicles the lives of the wealthy, and expansive, Forsyte family. Only a few generations removed from their humble beginnings, the Forstye family's fortunes have been enriched by their commercial investments. But even as their fortunes grow, the family is divided by long-held grudges and disagreements.
The Forsyte Saga is comprised of three novels, The Man of Property, In Chancery, and To Let, as well as two interludes, Indian Summer of a Forsyte, and Awakening. Through the Forsyte's family's affairs, Galsworthy examines the impact of industrialization, the changing roles of women, and the age-old conflict between material and spiritual wealth. The Forsyte Saga has been adapted for radio, film, and television, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
