Most of us first became acquainted with The Forsyte Saga when it ran as a dramatic serial on Masterpiece Theater. The Saga was brilliantly written by the Nobel Prize-winning British author John Galsworthy, and it consists of three novels with two interludes. It chronicles the vicissitudes of the upper-middle class Forsyte family from Victorian 1886 through the aftermath of the First World War. I will be teaching a five session course at the Oakton Community College Emeritus program on the Saga, considered by many to be some of the best British fiction ever written, starting on Thursday, October 5 and concluding on Thursday, November 2. The class is from 10 to 11:30 in the morning. You may register by contacting Oakton by phone at 847-982-9888 or online at http://www.oakton.edu/conted.
