In Chapter 1: "...when a Forsyte died-but no Forsyte had as yet died; they did not die; death being contrary to their principles, they took precautions against it, the instinctive precautions of highly vitalized persons who resent encroachments on their property."
At the end of Chapter 1: Nicholas and Roger walk together to the underground. One buys a first class ticket, the other a second class for the same train. When the train arrives, they part and go to their respective compartments, each thinking the other a "stubborn beggar" and a "cantankerosu chap". Neither one will change their set ways to accommodate the other.
Are there other examples of humor or irony, if you will, that you found in these chapters?
