B: You’re not in a hurry to go home today.

John Galsworthy is the author of the famous «Forsights’ Saga». It is interesting that he began writing books quite late. He was born on August 14, 1867 in a bourgeois family. He was supposed to follow in his father’s steps and become a lawyer. As a sensible young man, John studied law at Oxford, following which he started his own practice. But in less than a year he realized that he didn’t like his profession. So he left everything and went to travel all over the world. In 1891 John Galsworthy turned up in Russia. This country and its literature made a great impression on him. By the age of 27 he decided that he would not return to legal practice, but would go in for literature instead. His first attempts were not successful, but the writer didn’t give up hope, and tried again. He wrote stories, plays, novels in which he tried to show life realistically. The first part of his successful work, the Forsights’ Saga, was published in 1906. This story of the Forsights’ family was portrayed in six novels and encompasses three generations. At the same time, it depicts not only one family’s history, but also that of 50 years of the British bourgeois society.
