The Silver Spoon is the fifth of the nine novels in the 'Forsyte Chronicles', John Galsworthy's epic story of the moneyed Forsyte family during the decline of the Victorian age. It is part of the second trilogy, called 'A Modern Comedy', and continues his fascinating study of the British propertied class in a changing society.
In The Silver Spoon, Soames Forsyte's daughter, Fleur, experiences an inherent dissatisfaction with her marriage not unlike her father's, except that in this case it is Fleur who loves another. Married to Michael Mont, in line for a barony, Fleur's heart truly belongs to Jon, who is forbidden to her as the son of her father's ex-wife. When the American Francis Wilmot enters the scene bringing news that Jon has married Wilmot's sister, Fleur struggles to be happy and fulfilled, just as her father Soames did.
Vom Autor: "In naming this second part of The Forsyte Chronicles 'A modern comedy' the word comedy is stretched, perhaps, as far as the word Saga was stretched to cover the first part. And yet, what but a comedic view can be taken, what but comedic significance gleaned, of so restive a period as that in which we have lived since the war?" -- John Galsworthy
