A renaissance of E. M. Forster is certainly under way. The success of the many films based upon his novels demonstrates Forster’s appeal to the modern audience and his aptitude for entertaining a mass quantity of readers over several decades. Four of his best novels are brought together here in one volume: Where Angels Fear to Tread The Longest Journey A Room with a View Howards End “E. M. Forster’s characters are the most lifelike we have had since Jane Austen laid down the pen.”—Virgina Woolf “[Forster] does not hesitate to kill off a character right after introducing him with a careful description which leads us to anticipate a larger role.”—Louis Auchincloss “The shapeliness of his prose and his plotting still satisfies. The width remains piercing and seamlessly painless.”—the New York Times “There is no questioning or resisting the charm of Mr. Forster. The Longest Journey steadily attains beauty.”—Saturday Review Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Aspects of the Novel is a unique attempt to examine the novel afresh, rejecting the traditional methods of classification by chronology or subject-matter. 'His is a book to encourage dreaming.' Virginia Woolf Forster pares down the novel to its essential elements as he sees them: story, people, plot, fantasy, prophecy, pattern and rhythm. He illustrates each aspect with examples from their greatest exponents, not hesitating as he does so to pass controversial judgement on the works of, among others, Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens and Henry James. Full of Forster's renowned wit and perceptiveness, ASPECTS OF THE NOVEL offers a rare insight into the art of fiction from one of our greatest novelists.

In The Study Of E.M. Forster S Enig¬Matic Fiction, The Author Has Attempted A Profile Of This Modern Janus, The Essence Of Whose Personality Inheres In The Subtlety Of The Hints He Drops And The Glimpses He Affords Into The Dark Recesses Of The Minds Involved In A Mysterious Universe. The Elusiveness Of His Work Produces An Art Which, Though Concrete And Tangi¬Ble, Is Punctuated By Reticences, Inter¬Spersed With Hesitations, Qualifications And Suggestions, Pregnant With Deep Meanings Like The Melodious Stirrings Of Music. The Book Is Primarily Based On The Author S Doctoral Dissertation, Ethics And Aesthetics In The Novels Of E.M. Forster. According To Dr. Singh, The Categories In Which Forster Ranges People Are Primarily Ethical; The Pattern He Imposes On Experience Is The Pattern Of His Ethical Vision. This Vision Is Fresh And Independent Affair, Its Tone Is Inquiring, Not Dogmatic. His Analysis Shows That The Aesthetic Pleasure That Forster S Novels Communicate Depends Mainly On His Gifts Of Characterization, His Mastery Of Dialogue, His Delicately Poised Irony, His Flexible Prose, And His Ingenuity In Unfolding Themes So That Each Novel Has A Meaning That Transcends The Sum Of Its Parts. The Book Enables Us To Understand E.M. Forster By Placing Him In Relation To The Thoughts Of Some Of The Leading Thinkers Of 20Th Century And The Socio¬Political Milieu Its Daring Adventures, Its Narrow Prejudices, Its Peculiar Social Norms Which Determined The Scope Of His Work. His Approach Is Refreshingly Original And He Makes Quite Perceptive Comments On The Comple¬Xity Of Forster S Art In Comparison With Henry James, D.H. Lawrence, Joseph Conrad, George Orwell And Andre Gide As Also On His Craftsmanship As A Novelist.

Edward Morgan Forster (1879 - 1970) was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. Foster is the novelist who can be read again and again and who, after each reading, gives what few writers can give us after our first days of novel-reading, the sensation of having learned something else. In this book: A Room with a View, (1908) Howard's End, (1910) Where Angels Fear to Tread, (1905)

A Great Novelist, A Learned And Wise Critic, And A Charming Short-Story Writer Can These Three Reside In A Single Person? Yes, But, Of Course, In A Very Few, And E.M. Forster Is Certainly One Of Those Very Few, And That He Is Par Excellence. Any Knowledge Of Modern English Novel Without Even An Acquaintance With Forster Is Absurdly Incomplete. All Of Forster S Six Novels, Perhaps Barring Only Maurice, Have Been And Are Being Printed And Re-Printed In Hundreds Of Thousands Of Copies, And All The Six But Perhaps The Longest Journey Have Been Filmed By Worthy Directors, Such As Lean And Merchant, And The Films Have Received And Are Receiving High And Spontaneous Acclamations. As Said, Forster Is Also An Outstanding Critic And Will Go A Long Way Down The History Of Criticism As Much As He Will Be Remembered As A Highly Fantastic But Excellent Short-Story Writer For A Long Time To Come As He Is Today.This Compendium-Like Book, Split Into Three Volumes, Contains Discussions On All The Six Novels Of Forster Where Angles Fear To Tread, The Longest Journey, A Room With A View, Howards End, Maurice And A Passage To India. Besides, The Study Includes His Twelve Prime Short Stories, And His Critical Acumen And Theories. It Does Not Harbour No, It Carefully Avoids Any Pretension Or Pedantry, But It Comprises Almost All The Matters Relevant To Forsteriana, Plainly But Rather Expatiatingly Treated, So That It Is Expected To Help, Yeoman-Like, Certainly Not The Avant-Garde But The Sophomores. An In-Depth Study Of Forster As A Novelist And As A Critic Provided Herein Adds To The Value Of The Book. Furthermore, Quotations Included In The Appendix, Bibliography And Index Would Serve As Useful Study-Aids For The Readers.

Edward Morgan Forster (1879 - 1970) is best known for his beautiful novels - ironic with delicious plots, highlighting the hypocrisy and discrimination in early 20th-century British society. This volume brings together five of Forster's most notable works: A Room with a View. This is the ultimate coming of age novel, written so beautifully that no other novel of its type ever needed to be written. The young English middle-class girl, Lucy Honeychurch is wooed by two men, George Emerson and Cecil Vyse. One represents social acceptance, the other love and the whole stories is intertwined with irony. The novel takes us through the transformation of Lucy from innocent to wounded to unlikeable to unemotional and then to passionate. How Forster does this is a mystery and it the novel is pure magic. Howards End. This novel is a work of art. Howard's End is a country home but it represents England, the fate of both being uncertain due to extreme upheavals in social and economic changes in the post Victorian era. Forster is profound and witty in equal measure and he loves each of his characters and treats them with compassion as they fall helplessly towards the inevitable tragic end. The Longest Journey. This novel is the one Forster said he was most pleased to have written. It is a novel that grapples with some deep philosophical questions: What is the right way to live and what the wrong? Can anyone ever tell us how to live our life? Forster once again plunges us into a world of conventions and fakery, he pulls off the veneer of politeness and shows the rottenness inside. It challenges us never to stop questioning and to never be complacent with our morality. Where Angels Fear to Tread. This was Forster's first novel and is short but remarkably mature. The story is based around Lilia Herriton who takes a trip to Italy, gets married and is preganant with her first child before her family have a chance to stop it. Sadly, Lilia dies in childbirth and so the family see fit to try to recuse the child from being brought up as an Italian, preferring him to be groomed to be an English gentleman. It is a comedy of manners exposing the English superiority complex and obsession with class. The Celestial Omnibus and other Stories. A series of short stories exposing once again Forster's genius and wit.

Nicholas Royle presents a new Forster - one that has emerged from the posthumous publication of his explicitly homosexual fiction (since 1971) and from new critical attention to issues of language and textuality, Englishness and national identity, colonialism and postcolonialism, gender and queer theory. Royle provides detailed readings of all Forster's novels, as well as of critical writings such as his Aspects of the Novel. He explores the idea that Forster wrote not one, but six queer novels. Indeed, contrary to what may seem critical commonsense, this study proposes that Maurice is in some respects Forster's least queer book. All of his novels, however, are charged with a powerful eroticism and evoke a constant fascination with the generative peculiarities of words themselves. Focusing on such topics as the unforeseeable and the uncanny, deferred meaning and telepathy, Royle argues that Forster's work is stranger, more complex and compelling than earlier accounts may have suggested.

E. M. Forster and Virginia Woolf were members of the Bloomsbury Group and key literary figures at the forefront of an artistic movement known as Modernism in the early twentieth century, a movement which for English literature meant the innovative re-shaping of boundaries in form, narrative and language. Originally published in 1942, this book presents the historic text of the Rede Lecture, which was delivered by E. M. Forster in the Senate House, Cambridge on 29th May 1941, two months after Woolf's death. The lecture was also given in an alternate form at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on 5th March 1942. In this lecture Forster celebrates Woolf's colossal contribution to literature as well as challenges her work as both a fellow writer and friend. Capturing and illuminating the shifting mood and interests in literature at the time, this landmark lecture is a must-read for all literature scholars.

The letters of the last half of E. M. Forster's life are as engaging as those of his earlier years. Imbued with the same wit, warmth, and vitality, they reveal the breadth of his interests and the great range and enduring quality of his friendships. After a second trip to India in 1921, Forster finally finished the Indian novel he had begun years before. A Passage to India (1924) capped his career as a novelist; he then turned his energies to essays and other nonfictional prose. In the 1930s he emerged as an active journalist, writing and broadcasting on social and political issues. He fought for civil liberties and led a successful campaign against the BBC's political blacklisting of performers. His correspondents during these years included T. S. Eliot, Siegfried Sassoon, Lennard and Virginia Woolf, Christopher Isherwood, and Stephen Spender. At seventy Forster began along, happy, and productive new period in his life with his work on the libretto for Benjamin Britten's opera Billy Budd. In 1960 he was a leading defense witness in the Lady Chatterley trial. By then he was a revered figure among literati and enjoyed advising younger writers. In these last decades he divided his time between his rooms at King's College, Cambridge, and the home of his friends the Buckinghams in Coventry, where he died at age ninety-one.

Concerning E M Forster

A major reassessment of the great English novelist This impressive new book by the celebrated British critic Frank Kermode examines hitherto neglected aspects of the novelist E. M. Forster's life and work. Kermode is interested to see how it was that this apparently shy, reclusive man should have claimed and kept such a central position in the English writing of his time, even though for decades he composed no fiction and he was not close to any of his great contemporaries—Henry James, Ford Madox Ford, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce. Concerning E. M. Forster has at its core the Clark Lectures that Kermode gave at Cambridge University in 2007 on the subject of Forster, eighty years after Forster himself gave those lectures, which became Aspects of the Novel. Kermode reappraised the influence and meaning of that great work, assessed the significance of Forster's profound musicality (Britten thought him the most musical of all writers), and offered a brilliant interpretation of Forster's greatest work, A Passage to India. But there is more to Concerning E. M. Forster than that. Thinking about Forster vis-àvis other great modern writers, noting his interest in Proust and Gide and his lack of curiosity about American fiction, and observing that Forster was closest to the people who shared not his literary interests or artistic vocation but, rather, his homosexuality, Kermode's book offers a wise, original, and persuasive new portrait not just of Forster but of twentieth-century English letters.

From the literary icon, author of Howard’s End and A Passage to India, comes a posthumous collection of short works, many never before published. Featuring fourteen short stories, The Life to Come spans six decades of E. M. Forster’s literary career, tracking every phase of his development. Never having sought publication for most of the stories—only two were published in his lifetime—Forster worried his career would suffer because of their overtly homosexual themes. Instead they were shown to an appreciative circle of friends and fellow writers, including Christopher Isherwood, Siegfried Sassoon, Lytton Strachey, and T. E. Lawrence. With stories that are lively and amusing (“What Does It Matter?”; “The Obelisk”), and others that are more somber and thought-provoking (“Dr Woolacott”; “Arthur Snatchfold”), The Life to Come sheds a light on Forster’s powerful but suppressed explorations beyond the strictures of conventional society. “Have we been as ready for Forster’s honesty as we thought we were? His greatness surely had root in his capacity to treat all human relationships seriously and truthfully. . . . Even the earliest and most ephemeral of them will be recognized as the frailer embodiments of the same passionate convictions that made for the moral iron of his novels.” —Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review
