After an introductory chapter which deals with Forster's background and influences, the book follows a mainly chronological pattern, considering the earlier stories, the novels and the uncollected literary journalism which has formed the bulk of Forster's output since 1924
The aerodrome : a love story by Rex Warner ( Book )
78 editions published between 1941 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1941, The Aerodrome is one of the few works of fiction in the twentieth century to understand the dangerous yet glamorous appeal of fascism and the less than satisfactory answer of traditional democracy - and to transmute their deadly opposition into terms of enduring art. Rex Warner brilliantly invents, on one side, a thoroughly degenerate Village representing fallen man, and on the other side a great Aerodrome dedicated to ruthless efficiency. The ideological struggle between the idealistic Air Vice-Marshal and the hero-narrator from the Village is portrayed with poetry, narrative speed, and great simplicity of language. It is a great symbolic novel of our time, as pertinent today as when it was written

The converts; a historical novel by Rex Warner ( Book )

This novel is a reconstruction of the early life of St Augustine of Hippo in fourth century Rome and Milan. It was a time of political decadence, but also of intellectual and religious ferment. Traditional ways of life, government, religious and thought were changing rapidly and decisively. Christianity, though already given official backing by the Emperor Constantine, was still challenged by other creeds, and continually in process of defining itself. Augustine's moral and intellectual growth are described through the imagined journal of Alypius, his greatest friend and admirer. After they have studied together in Carthage, Augustine rejoins Alypius in Rome, where they are immediatey caught up in the struggle of contemporary philisophies
