The Writings of E. M. Forster





Dust Jacket Designer:


The first full-length study of Forster's works, this book also provides a useful example of an approach combining literary criticism and biographical writing. There is a specific chapter dedicated to Forster's life, and the overriding argument of the book that "writers, like other people, are rooted in time and place" gives rise to a highly contextual and frequently biographical reading of Forster's writings.
