[Read by David Case]
The Man of Property is the first book of the 'Forsyte Saga' trilogy. (*The Forsyte Saga trilogy is the first trilogy - - of three trilogies - - that comprise the entire series of nine books known as 'The Forsyte Chronicles'.)
The nine books of John Galsworthy's epic 'Forsyte Chronicles' follow the fortunes of the venerable Forsyte family, a moneyed clan whose passions are ever at war with its values. Galsworthy won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932 ''for his distinguished art of narration, which takes its highest form in the Forsyte Saga.''
The Man of Property, the first novel in the first trilogy of the epic nine book series, introduces us to Soames Forsyte, a solicitor and prominent figure in his family. Accustomed to getting whatever he wants, he sets his sights with absolute determination on the beautiful Irene, in spite of her pennilessness and her 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.
