Edward Morgan Forster was born in London in 1879, attended Tonbridge School and went on to King`s College, Cambridge in 1897, where he retained a lifelong connection and was elected to an Honorary Fellowship in 1946.
Forster wrote six novels. Where Angels Fear to Tread `1905` The Longest Journey `1907`, A Room with a View `1908` and Howards End `1910` were all published before the First World War. Fourteen years passed before the publication of Forster`s most famous work, A Passage to India, in 1924. Maurice, his novel on a homosexual theme, which he competed in 1914, was published posthumously in 1971. His other works include essays, biographies, short stories, plays and a critical work, Aspects of the Novel, as the libretto for Britten`s opera Billy Budd.
E.M. Forster died in June 1970.Revue de presse :
“ A Passage to India is one of the great books of the twentieth century and has had enormous influence. We need its message of tolerance and understanding now more than ever. Forster was years ahead of his time, and we ought to try to catch up with him.” –Margaret Drabble
“The crystal clear portraiture, the delicate conveying of nuances of thought and life, and the astonishing command of his medium show Forster at the height of his powers.” – The New York Times
“[Forster is] a supreme storyteller . . . The novel seems to me more completely ‘achieved’ than anything else he wrote.” –from the new Introduction by P. N. Furbank
