E.M. Forster describes the driving force behind this book as the effort to see through novels, not round them. This edition, based on a recension of the text by Oliver Stallybrass includes a number of related writings, notably some reflections which Forster committed to paper.

For those of my friends who have read CSL's [b:An Experiment in Criticism|80007|An Experiment in Criticism (Canto)|C.S. Lewis|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347790855s/80007.jpg|77261] and Tolkien's [b:On Fairy-Stories|1362112|Tolkien on Fairy-stories|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1326706200s/1362112.jpg|1351902], this makes an interesting companion. Although Forster doesn't really address things in quite the same way, he does have chapters on "Fantasy" and "Prophecy," each of which I think has some confluence with CSL and Big T. ( )

I remember a time, roughly ten years ago, when I had heard of Forster but never read him. I have now read almost everything he published in book form - and I adore his writing and his sensibilities. This too I adore, and my only reservation about his study of the novel and what works - and doesn't - in literature is that it is too short. Originally a series of lectures, this fine volume scratches at the surface but would have been better at twice the length. Perhaps Forster felt that he had said enough of what he wanted to say, and that it fell to others to continue the work he had begun. ( )

In the 1920s, the lecture series appears to have been the equivalent of today's serial podcast, or at least that's how this collection reads to me. Forster is casual but erudite, and through his thorough and sometimes humorous analysis, he conveys his deep understanding of and love for the novel as a literary form. There was much more to this book than I expected, and I very much enjoyed it. ( )

Let's get this out of the way immediately: I've never read an E.M. Forster novel, only his short stories. It might seem odd, then, that I chose to read his guide to good novel writing. A bit like taking a cookery class from Jamie Oliver having enjoyed one of his mince pies. Fortunately it wouldn't really have mattered whose guide to novel writing I read since I'm not planning on writing a novel.

That being said… I was in Manchester a few months ago to give a talk at the University. While catching up over tea and biscuits with the faculty someone asked me how my novel was going. I was rather bewildered by this, since I've never so much as started writing a novel. Had he got me confused with someone else? Had I gotten drunk at a conference and told him I was writing a four hundred page thriller about a handsome young Englishman who has to save the world from a nuclear-weapon-wielding arts student using a cunning mix of wit, maths, and did I mention his handsomeness? Because I'm really not ready to start writing my memoirs yet.

But no, I (and he) had fallen victim to a whimsical joke on my department website. Once upon a time I threw in some placeholder text to the effect of “I'm working on a novel, but till then here are my papers”, except I forgot to ever replace it with something less, you know, utterly fallacious.

Fortunately, and despite it being ostensibly a guide to novel writing, you don't need to have plans to write any novels in order to enjoy Aspects of the Novel. In fact if you are planning on writing a novel I'd recommend Stephen King's On Writing as a much more useful and practical guide to the business. This book of Forster's is more of a vague wander through the landscape of prose fiction, pointing out what makes a novel a novel and what properties good novels should possess. And a jolly nice wander it is too. ( )
