About the Author

John Galsworthy was known in his day as a playwright, but he is now best remembered for The Forsyte Saga, a series of three novels and two interludes that explore the social dynamics of the nouveau riche. Galsworthy campaigned for various social causes in his writing, including prison reform, censorship issues, women's rights, and the rights of animals. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1932. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving conclusion to A Modern Comedy. 25 Oct 2004
By frumiousb - Published on Amazon.com
Jon has returned to England. His return brings an end to the peace of mind of Fleur and Michael. Jon may have moved on and fallen in love again with Ann, but Fleur has never loved everyone but Jon.

Swan Song has many of the usual Forsyte book tropes-- commentary on modern life offered through the observations of old men; June introducing us to the latest artistic schools; Forsyte paralysis when faced with the unblinking desire to do the wrong thing. As with the five books preceding this, it is all wonderfully well written. Michael and Fleur encountering people doing the Charleston is a particularly charming moment.

Swan Song is so powerful partly because of the mixed emotions it has about Fleur. While Galsworthy gamely soldiers on to complete the cycle of doom begun by Soames and Irene, it is evident that he has a great deal of sympathy for Fleur. This installment shows her at her best as well as showing her at her worst. She is the swan of the book, singing her loveliest song. A worthy ending to the second Forsyte trilogy and a very readable instalment in this underappreciated series.

1.0 out of 5 stars continued disappointment 14 Mar 2007
By Pauline B. Larach - Published on Amazon.com
The author puts forth a "New view' and changes his story characters so then I didn't get my wish of 'how I would have hoped Soalme's d. turned out.'
