The Man of Property, the first novel in John Galsworthy's epic social satire The Forsyte Saga, introduces us to Soames Forsyte, a London solicitor and prominent man of his important family. Accustomed to getting whatever he wants, he sets his sights with absolute determination on the beautiful Irene, in spite of her pennilessness and indifference to him. Irene, a lover of art and beauty, eventually accepts his marriage proposal over a life of degraded poverty, but she swears to Soames that she will never be his property. When all his money fails to make up for the absence of love and Irene falls for a young architect, Soames resolves to force the obedience he could not buy.

Galsworthy won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932 for his distinguished art of narration, which takes its highest form in The Forsyte Saga.

    " read because I loved the Masterpiece Theater adaptation "

    " I was meaning to read this book for a very long time, at least 10 years. Finally, I'm done. A great book. Really appealed to me for a number of reasons. "

    " Just finished watching the 2002 BBC five disc filming of the first volume, a totally intoxicating series. The book is compulsively readable, which is embarrassing, since D.H. Lawrence and a lot of others find the book impossibly sentimental. But it's the kind of book one would very much like to have written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by David Koblos | 1/8/2014

    " One of the great classics... didn't impress me that much. Yet another story of the tragic downfall of a family, though it was more the unlucky relationship of two people, and how that tore a family apart that was probably all to willing to go against each other. "
