Tietoja tekijästä

Edward Morgan Forster was born on January 1, 1879, in London, England. He never knew his father, who died when Forster was an infant. Forster graduated from King's College, Cambridge, with B.A. degrees in classics (1900) and history (1901), as well as an M.A. (1910). In the mid-1940s he returned to näytä lisää Cambridge as a professor, living quietly there until his death in 1970. Forster was named to the Order of Companions of Honor to the Queen in 1953. Forster's writing was extensively influenced by the traveling he did in the earlier part of his life. After graduating from Cambridge, he lived in both Greece and Italy, and used the latter as the setting for the novels Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and A Room with a View (1908). The Longest Journey was published in 1907. Howard's End was modeled on the house he lived in with his mother during his childhood. During World War I, he worked as a Red Cross Volunteer in Alexandria, aiding in the search for missing soldiers; he later wrote about these experiences in the nonfiction works Alexandria: A History and Guide and Pharos and Pharillon. His two journeys to India, in 1912 and 1922, resulted in A Passage to India (1924), which many consider to be Forster's best work; this title earned the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Forster wrote only six novels, all prior to 1925 (although Maurice was not published until 1971, a year after Forster's death, probably because of its homosexual theme). For much of the rest of his life, he wrote literary criticism (Aspects of the Novel) and nonfiction, including biographies (Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson), histories, political pieces, and radio broadcasts. Howard's End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India have all been made into successful films. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Here's what I wrote in 2015 about this read: "Nice turn of the century English. England is changing, London is building, building, building and various classes of families interact with tension. Mrs. Wilcox is perhaps the soul of old, rural England; she is gone. Analogies abound." Quotations in the comments section are my exact kindle highlights.

I was motivated to read it because I wanted also to read the story from Scudder's point of view, Alec by William di Canzio.. Even knowing the story from the excellent movie (Rupert Graves as Scudder was stunning), finally reading the book was surprisingly effective, and astonishingly erotic especially given that it was written a hundred years ago. It's a shame the times were such that it couldn't be published until after Forster's death in the seventies. I'd love to say we've progressed beyond those times, but the recent right wing censorship of LGBTQ books in libraries suggests otherwise.… (lisätietoja)

This is probably one of the less intimidating classics to read, it’s shorter than most, the storytelling is straightforward, and the subject matter is still relevant, someone trying to figure out whether they’ll be better off conforming to what society dictates or following their own arrow wherever or to whomever it may lead.

Where many classics often feel slow, this one is a bit too hurried throughout. The plot is propulsive enough that it felt like it could have taken a bit more time with everything from the characters to their relationships to the wonders of Lucy’s travels in Italy and still not become draggy.

I first read this one when I was a teenager and many years later there’s something about the romance that still appeals to me, even though this time as I read it, it occurred to me that this relationship is fairly underdeveloped, they only share a handful of conversations. Ordinarily I prefer romantic stories where its less of a whirlwind than they experience here, where there’s more getting to know each other, somehow though I was mostly okay with it in this book, in part due to their chemistry, but I think more than that the way the author set up their arcs, how trapped Lucy clearly feels by society’s rules and how much George is mentally suffering before a pivotal crime scene, it just felt like they were two people who need to be swept away by their feelings in a good way, so I was always eager for them to share those few potentially life-changing interractions over the course of the book.

Once upon a teenage time this was probably five stars for me, now though, with that rushed quality more evident to me and the dialogue sometimes on the clunky side, I didn’t enjoy it quite as much this go round but I still liked it, especially the shared reaction following the crime scene.
