The three novels that make up The Forsyte Saga have long been recognized as masterpieces of twentieth-century literature, and Galsworthy as one of its leading exponents. Scandal, tragedy, despair, rape, accidental death, marriage, remarriage and a healthy leavening of births all unfold against a rolling backdrop of a world war. This monumental trilogy by the Nobel Prize-winning author chronicles the lives of three generations of an upper-middle-class London family obsessed with money and respectability.

In this first novel of the trilogy, The Man of Property, Soames Forsyte, the titular man, is married to the enigmatic Irene. She is the most prized item of his impressive collection of beautiful things. But when she balks at his controlling rigidity and falls in love with the penniless architect Bosinney, their affair touches off a series of events which can only end in disgrace and disaster.
