About the Authors
  • This collection of essays, each one by a recognized expert, provides lively and innovative readings of every aspect of Forster's wide-ranging career. It includes substantial chapters dedicated to his two major novels, Howards End and A Passage to India, and further chapters focus on A Room With a View and Maurice. Forster's connections with the values of Bloomsbury and the lure of Greece and Italy in his work are assessed, as is his vexed relationship with Modernism. Other essays investigate his role as a literary critic, the status of his work within the genres of the novel and the short story, his treatment of sexuality and his attitude to and representation of women. This was the most comprehensive study of Forster's work to be published for many years, providing an invaluable source of comment on and insight into his writings.

    • Unrivalled source of commentary and scholarship on Forster's work by recognized experts
    • Gives detailed analysis of Forster's major works, including A Passage to India and Howards End
    • Will be of interest to those studying and teaching postcolonial literature courses

    "...the volume itself is a fascinating register of historical fissures and tensions in Forster criticism, and will appeal to a wide readership."
