Dark Flower by John Galsworthy
Book DescriptionCoveringalmost 30 years in the life and loves of Mark Lennan, The Dark Floweropensin 1880 with 18-year-old undergraduate Markstudying art at Oxford, and ends 30 years later with Mark ostensibly happily married, yet torn between his wife and a beautiful teenage girl the last and most disturbing manifestation of the "dark flower" of passion.Within a dozen pages, Galsworthy establishes his mastery of compelling narrative and sketches an irresistible plot.Much of his achievement lies in the mixture of pathos and humorthat he derives from characters little able to express their feelings.There is much else to admire, from Galsworthy s impressionistic descriptions and eye for detail to the subtle symmetry he creates between his characters, emphasizing the cyclical nature of the story. Published in 1913, the storyalso holds the fascination of a world about to be transformed by war one in whicha love lettercould still be delivered by the hand of a discreet manservant, and the residents of Piccadilly kept their horses stabled close by so that they could gallop down to Richmond for fresh air."

Books By Author John Galsworthy
Island Pharisees, Paperback (July 2010)
Galsworthy's first novel was also the one he came to define as his most important, and it set the template in style and content for all his subsequent work. Galsworthy wrote the novel as a wide-ranged traveller returned home, prepared to confront the entrenched and self-serving moneyed elite.
Forsyte Saga, Paperback (July 2008)
The three novels which make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commerical upper-middle class Forsyte family between 1886 and 1920. This, the only critical edition of Galsworthy's popular masterpiece, contains detailed notes which are vital to the saga, explaining particularly the contemporary artistic and literary allusions, and slang of the time.
