_ONE'S EYES ARE WHAT ONE IS, ONE'S MOUTH IS WHAT ONE BECOMES.__ __ _- JOHN GALSWORTHY
_ _
The most prized item in Soames Forsyte's collection of beautiful things is his wife, the enigmatic Irene. But when she falls in love with Bosinney, a penniless architect who utterly rejects the Forsyte values, their affair touches off a series of events which can only end in disgrace and disaster.
John Galsworthy tackles his theme of the demise of the upper-middle classes with irony and compassion.
