JACKET TEXT:
(front flap)
John Galsworthy's final trilogy in Me
Forsyte Chronicles, End of the Chapter,
contains the three novels Maid in Waiting,
Flowering Wilderness, and One More
River.
This trilogy introduces for the first time
new characters and new situations: the
Cherrells, related by marriage to the For­
sytes. Since 1217, Cherrell sons have left
the family home, Gondaford Grange, to
serve the State as soldiers, clergymen and
administrators. Indeed, the concept of serv­
ice is as deeply imbedded in the Cherrells
as the drive for material possessions is in
their Forsyte cousins. But the 1930s find
them uneasy in a world of changing values,
unemployment and depression. With irony,
sympathy and great narrative skill, Gals­
worthy shows how the Cherrells come to
terms with a century driven by hand-to-
mouth opportunism, setting little store by
service.

John Galsworthy, the son of a solicitor,
J was born in 1867 and educated at Har­
row and New College, Oxford. Although
he was called to the bar in 1890, he pre­
ferred to spend his time traveling—partic­
ularly in the Far East where he met Joseph
Conrad, who became a lifelong friend. He
returned to England to settle down to writ­
ing, and in 1897 he published a volume of
short stories and later two novels. However,
it was the publication of The Man of Prop­
erty (1906), the first book in The Forsyte
Saga, together with his first play, The Silver
Box, which established him in the public
mind. Other novels and plays followed, but
it was not until after the First World War
that he completed the first Forsyte trilogy
with/« Chancery (1920) and To Let (1921).
The second Forsyte trilogy, A Modern
Comedy, appeared in 1929, and the third,
End of the Chapter, posthumously in 1934.
Galsworthy was the first president of the
EE.N. Club, received the Order of Merit
in 1929, and was awarded the Nobel Prize
for Literature in 1932 for The Forsyte Sara.
He died in 1933.
