Abstract:

Heralded as E.M. Forster's masterpiece, Howards End explores the social, economic, and philosophical forces at play in England during the early twentieth century. Written in 1910, the novel delves into the lives of three families, each living within divergent social classes'the wealthy and materialistic Wilcoxes; the literary and cultured Schlegel sisters; and the impoverished Bast family. Through dramatic twists and turns that tightly interweave the stories of these families, Forster perfectly captures the changing social landscape of turn-of-the-century England, and Howards End continues to be recognized as a literary classic. It has been successfully adapted for both television and film, including the 1992 Merchant Ivory film starring Helena Bonham Carter, Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, and Emma Thompson. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperPerennial Classics collection to build your digital library.
