E. M. Forster: A Literary Life
Forster's literary career is assessed in relation to works that mark its phases: his suburban novels, the Indian novel, the BBC talks, and first and last, his short fiction. This study traces evidences of his keen awareness of political and social undercurrents as discovered in the works: the importance of personal relations, culture as a precious heritage, and the creative artist as definer of cultural values and encourager of those who should preserve them.
