About This Item
Trained to be a lawyer, John Galsworthy turned instead to writing. Born in Surrey, England and educated at Oxford, Galsworthy traveled around the world rather than practice law. On these travels he met Joseph Conrad, and the two men become life-long friends. Galsworthy is best known for his The Forsyte Saga, a highly regard series published from 1906-1921. In addition to his writing, Galsworthy argued for prison reform and animal rights. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
