A passage to India by E. M Forster ( Book )
16 editions published between 1924 and 1998 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this hard-hitting novel, first published in 1924, the murky personal relationship between an Englishwoman and an Indian doctor mirrors the troubled politics of colonialism. Adela Quested and her fellow British travelers, eager to experience the "real" India, develop a friendship with the urbane Dr. Aziz. While on a group outing, Adela and Dr. Aziz visit the Marabar caves together. As they emerge, Adela accuses the doctor of assaulting her. While Adela never actually claims she was raped, the decisions she makes ostracize her from both her countrymen and the natives, setting off a complex chain of events that forever changes the lives of all involved. This intense and moving story asks the listener serious questions about preconceptions regarding race, sex, religion, and truth. A political and philosophical masterpiece

The creator as critic and other writings by E.M. Forster by E. M Forster ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"E. M. Forster, whose novels, including Howards End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India, probe the values of the English middle class, is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most distinguished authors. He was also a respected literary critic. The Creator as Critic contains more than 40 of Forster's hitherto-unpublished essays, lectures, and memoirs, spanning the period 1898 to 1960. They reflect his views on a wide range of authors: Poggio, Cornaro, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Defoe, Richardson, Fielding, Smollett, Sterne, Scott, Coleridge, Austen, Ruskin, Tolstoy, Meredith, Arnold, Butler, Pater, Hardy, James, Wilde, Shaw, Conrod, Housman, Cavafy, Kipling, Wells, Proust, Beerbohm, Joyce, Woolf, Keynes, Sassoon, Eliot, Auden, and others." "The Creator as Critic presents the original texts of some 30 broadcasts made by Forster for the BBC during the years 1928 to 1959. These radio talks, collected for the first time in this volume, offer insight into his attitude toward writers such as Swift, Crabbe, Voltaire, Dostoyevsky, Edward Carpenter, Ethel Smyth, Lowes Dickinson, Strachey, Munshi Premehand, Lawrence, Graves, Dos Passos, Capek, Wescott, Steinbeck, Orwell, and many others. They are the thoughtful and thought-provoking products of Forster's active engagement with the literary, political, and social events of his time."--BOOK JACKET
Letters between Forster and Isherwood on homosexuality and literature by E. M Forster ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The correspondence between E.M. Forster and Christopher Isherwood is a fascinating record of the professional and personal lives of two major British writers from the 1930s to the 1960s. The letters of the 1930s reveal how Forster and Isherwood each came to grips with the rise of fascism in Europe and threat of war as both writers and simply human beings caught in the midst of a world on the brink of disaster. These letters also tell two parallel but very different stories of love and devotion between each writer and his respective male partner. The correspondence during the war years juxtapose the strikingly different worlds in which Forster and Isherwood were living: the London area during the Blitz and the southern California community of exiled writers, respectively. In the post-war letters the two friends continue their ongoing conversation to find a suitable ending for Forster's groundbreaking but yet unpublished novel, Maurice. This complete collection of very readable letters, thoroughly annotated and with an informative introduction, will be of great interest for literary scholars and general readers."--Jacket
