The Galsworthy Compendium is a digital archive project chronicling the life, works, and reception of British author John Galsworthy. Notable as both a playwright and a novelist—and perhaps most known for his decades-spanning series of novels and stories starring the Forsyte family—Galsworthy was a prolific author who received both popular and critical acclaim during the early twentieth century. In 1932 Galsworthy was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, in large part due to the success of his Forsyte novels.

This site attempts to serve as a comprehensive compendium of all things Galsworthy. If it is written by or about him; if it depicts his characters; or if it has anything to do with Galsworthy and his beloved Forsytes, it belongs on this site.
