About the Author: E.M. Forster

Edward Morgan Forster, generally published as E.M. Forster, was an novelist, essayist, and short story writer. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. His humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: "Only connect".

He had five novels published in his lifetime, achieving his greatest success with A Passage to India (1924) which takes as its subject the relationship between East and West, seen through the lens of India in the later days of the British Raj.

Forster's views as a secular humanist are at the heart of his work, which often depicts the pursuit of personal connections in spite of the restrictions of contemporary society. He is noted for his use of symbolism as a technique in his novels, and he has been criticised for his attachment to mysticism. His other works include Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905), The Longest Journey (1907), A Room with a View (1908) and Maurice (1971), his posthumously published novel which tells of the coming of age of an explicitly gay male character.

E. M. Forster was a 20th century novelist, short story writer and essayist. His writings empathize the class differences in British society. Forster is best known for his novels Howard's End, A Passage to India and A Room with a View. The Longest Journey published in 1907 was in part autobiographical. The intellectual and social life of Cambridge University suits the physically impaired, orphaned student Ricky Elliot. Later Ricky marries a shallow, domineering woman, Agnes Pembroke, and, at her urging, cheats his illegitimate half-brother Stephen. Tragedy soon strikes the Elliot family.
