Description


This ironic and compassionate novel addresses the difficulties of friendship between the races in British-ruled India. A Passage to India is a complex, beautifully rendered story of how a young Englishwoman's hallucination that she has been assaulted by a friendly young Indian doctor in an ancient cave gives rise to racial hysteria. This subtle and affecting novel is noted for its strong mystical overtones; it was Forster's last and greatest work and remains a guide to understanding Indian civilization.

About the Author


Edward Morgan Forster (E. M. Forster) was an English novelist, short-story writer and essayist. Born in 1879, Forster is known for his examination of how class difference and hypocrisy in British society during the beginning of the twentieth century influenced personal connections. These themes are best represented in his novels A Room with a View, A Passage to India, and Howard's End. Forster died of a stroke in 1970 at the age of 91.
