The author's monumental chronicle of the lives of the moneyed Forsytes, a family whose values are constantly at war with its passions. The story of Soames Forsyte's marriage to the beautiful and rebellious Irene, and its effects upon the whole Forsyte clan is a brilliant social satire of the acquisitive sensibilities of a comfort-bound class in its final glory. The author spares none of his characters, revealing their weaknesses and shortcomings as clearly as he doesthe tenacity and perseverance that define the strongest members of the Forsyte family. This edition contains the three original novels - The Man of Property, In Chancery, & To Let - & interludes Indian Summer of a Forsyte & Awakening.
