Passers By, Swan Song, On Forsyte ‘Change by John Galsworthy

Автор: andrey4444. Опубликовано в Джон Голсуорси

The book includes the short story "Passers By" and the novel "Swan Song", as well as the stories from the collection "On Forsyte ‘Change".
"Swan song" is the final novel in the series "A Modern Comedy" — tells the story of England, beginning of XX century and about the young members of the clan Forsyte. It's a sad, lyrical, poignant book about the past, present, hopeless, poetic love...
Here's what Galsworthy said about "On Forsyte ‘Change": “Before a long suffering public and still more long suffering critics, I lay this volume of apocryphal Forsyte tales, pleading the two excuses: That it is hard to part suddenly and finally from those with whom one has lived so long; and, that these footnotes do really, I think, help to fill in and round out the chronicles of the Forsyte family.
They have all been written since ‘Swan Song’ was finished, but in place they come between the Saga and the Comedy, for without the Saga they would not be understood, and they are over before the Comedy begins. In the hope of forgiveness I send them forth.”
