Summary/Abstract: The John Galsworthy’s trilogies - Forsyth Saga and A Modern Comedy – have been written in twenty years, and they describe, truthful, forty years of Victorian and Post-Victorian Era, 1886-1926. The marriages of convenience were a normal thing, because what is sought in the family it is the security. The traditional family it’s the operating mechanism of the society, and it is forbidden to put it in danger. Galsworthy sees in the love of the Victorian Era an disturbing factor. At the end of Victorian Era, the more are changing, the liberty to choose your ``half” becomes much more relaxed, but the personal dramas are repeating following the social antecedents, proving the universality of the human being.
