About Author

John Galsworthy

English author and dramatist John Galsworthy OM (14 August 1867 – 31 January 1933) was born in England. A Modern Comedy, The Forsyte Saga (1906–1921), and End of the Chapter are notable works. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932. Galsworthy was born in Kingston Hill, Surrey, England, in what is now known as Galsworthy House (at the time, it was known as Parkhurst). His family had a sizable home in Kingston upon Thames and was well-established and rich. In 1893, while serving as the first mate on a sailing ship docked in Adelaide, Australia, he met Joseph Conrad. The two quickly become close. From the Four Winds, a collection of short stories, was John Galsworthy's first book to be published in 1897. His writings, especially The Forsyte Saga, a trilogy about the titular family and their interconnected lives, have made him more well-known in recent years. He underlines their arrogant, acquisitive attitudes and moral norms while yet being sympathetic to his characters. Galsworthy died on January 31, 1933, and following his passing, his ashes were dropped from an airplane over the South Downs. In addition to monuments in Highgate Cemetery and the cloisters of New College, Oxford, he was cremated at Woking.
