The Forsyte Saga
Kategoria: Literatura piękna pozostałe
Initially, the narrative centres on Soames Forsyte - a successful solicitor living in London with his beautiful wife Irene. A pillar of the late Victorian upper middle class, materially wealthy, his appears to be a golden existence endowed with all the necessary possessions for a 'Man of Property', but beneath this very proper exterior lies a core of unhappiness and brutal relationships.
The marriage of Soames and Irene disintegrates in bitter recrimination, creating a feud within the family that will have far-reaching consequences. As the years pass, the feud between the two factions of the troubled family deepens and the shadows of past miseries return to haunt the lives of a new, younger generation. Irene's son Jon has fallen in love with Fleur, the daughter of the embittered Soames. The consequences will be tragic.
