3-0 out of 5 stars More than just a Collection of Critical Approaches
A Passage to India is Forster's most celebrated and most frequently read novel. Published in 1924, the novel has given rise to critical discussion about imperialism, liberalism, modernism, ethnicity, sexuality and the relation of the personal and political. With Forster being one of the chief authors of early twentieth-century English literature, this text is a key text to the modern novel. Therefore, Routledge has decided to publish a sourcebook on the novel in their series of literary sourcebooks, edited by Duncan Wu (Oxford). Peter Childs, the editor of the book, is Principal Lecturer in English at the University of Gloucestershire and well known due to his publications on twentieth-century prose.

The approach of this book is very different to other critical works. It has been designed to provide students with the materials required to begin serious studies of their own. This is reflected in the structure of the book. Section 1, 'Contexts,' provides biographical data in form of an author chronology and contemporary documents relating to the author and his work-every single one of them by Forster himself. The texts are structured in four major groups: 'The English and the British Empire', 'On A Passage to India', 'India' and 'On the Rhythm in Fiction.' Section 2, 'Interpretations,' contains what the most critical books contain: critical approaches to the text. In Childs's book, they are sorted as a history of criticism. This part is divided into three main chapters. The first gives an overview over the critical reception of Forster's novel whereas the second as well as the third are selections of extracts from the most important and influential early and modern criticism. The last part of the second section is dedicated to the stage and film adaptations, but does-alas!-not tell about all and the most recent adaptations. Section 3 is called 'Key Passages.' This is clearly a euphemism for a chapter summary with snippets of the original text. The reason to have these forty-eight pages in the book is simple: They are for the lazy students. They summarize the plot, they give examples for brief presentations; they tell the reader the setting, the point of view-everything which would take the student five minutes having the novel in hand. Furthermore, they tell the reader how to interpret the text. The rest of the book is a short list of recommended editions and further texts, followed by an index.

One can ask for the perfect reader of this book, and one will find none. For the student who really wants to do research on Forster, the references are too few and the critical extracts to short and to various. There is a general lack of in-depth analysis. The editor, so it seems, did neither want to focus on a specific aspect of the novel nor put an emphasis on a specific type of criticism, whether feminist, postcolonial, biographical or structuralist criticism. The idea to provide a book of sources as a basis for discussion is laudable, but it is disavowed by the I-tell-you-how-to-read-this-novel part of the sourcebook. What this sourcebook can do is to give you a general overview over the history and the types of criticism, a timeline of Forster's life and a selection of letters and essays, which can form a contextual frame for the novel. One can recommend Peter Childs's book to teachers who either really want to discuss the novel or have no idea and want to deliver the usual interpretational phrases, and the book is recommendable to people who do not want to read the novel by themselves and have no internet account to find the freely available chapter summaries. Still, the book is well done, very clearly arranged and of a certain academic standard. As first overview for a subsequent authentic research, this well-written book is good choice. ... Read more

Product Description

This groundbreaking volume presents a radical revision of gay criticism and focuses on E. M. Forster's place in the emerging field of queer studies.

Many previous critics of Forster downplayed his homosexuality or read Forster naively in terms of gay liberation. This collection situates Forster within the Bloomsbury Group and examines his relations to major figures such as Henry James, Edward Carpenter, and Virginia Woolf. Particular attention is paid to Forster's several accounts of India and their troubled relation to the British colonial enterprise. Analyzing a wide range of Forster's work, the authors examine material from Forster's undergraduate writings to stories written more than a half-century later.

A landmark book for the study of gender in literature, Queer Forster brings the terms "queer" and "gay" into conversation, opening up a dialogue on wider dimensions of theory and allowing a major revaluation of modernist inventions of sexual identity.
Amazon.com Review
It is no longer a secret that famed British novelist E. M. Forster wasa homosexual (the posthumous publication of his gay-themed novel Maurice in1971 made that perfectly clear), but academic criticism has been late incatching up with this news. Even when critics acknowledge Forster'ssexuality they rarely discuss its relationship to his fiction. Robert K.Martin and George Piggford's Queer Forster collects 13 essays that analyzethe writer's work--including The Longest Journey and his essays oncensorship, India, and British politics--in the context of his sexuality and the social and political issues of his time. Forster's relationship tothe Bloomsbury Group, many of whom were openly gay as opposed to Forster'smore quite life, is discussed at length. Moretraditionally minded academics complain that this biographical criticism"limits" an understanding of a writer's work, but Queer Forster containssome of the most provocative and insightful contemporary writing on modernBritish literature. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Introduction from a Queer Angle
I have often complained of poor quality of volumes put together by different scholars which offer nothing but a catchy title. This volume proves beyond any doubt that it is possible for a group of scholars (with editors who are in control of the project) to produce a volume which gives you a complete overview of a subject.
The volumes opens with an essay which retraces earlier critical approaches to the question of homosexuality in Forster's works and life. If you are interested in the subject, you can do nothing meaningful without reading it first. The other twelve essays aim first at establishing Forster's place within his period (e.g. through his relations with Carpenter and James) and then proceed to analyze a selection of Forster's work from a queer angle.
You can always ask for more but this is the best you can get.

5-0 out of 5 stars Provides up-to-date research
E. M. Forster's homosexuality made him 'different' when it came to thepublic morals of English contemporary society. The essays in this bookexplore the intricate link between that fact and his fiction. It is not aneasy read for a Sunday afternoon, but certainly it opens a new world foranyone genuinely interested in E. M. Forster, colonialism in literature,queer theory and twentieth-century literature. Indispensable from thescholarly point of view. A beautiful journey through the Forster-landscape,with many great vistas and precious finds. ... Read more

Product Description
E.M. Forster's Modernism is the first detailed and comprehensive investigation into Forster's relationship to Modernism. A fresh and original study, it situates Forster's fiction within a range of early 20th Century contexts: socio-political, generic and aesthetic. It advances the argument that Forster's fiction embodies an important strand within modernism and in doing so makes the case for a new definition and interpretation of 'modernism'.

Product Description

The correspondence between E. M. Forster and Christopher Isherwood is a fascinating record of the professional and personal lives of two major British writers from the 1930s to the 1960s. The letters of the 1930s reveal how Forster and Isherwood each came to grips with the rise of fascism in Europe and threat of war as both writers and simply human beings caught in the midst of a world on the brink of disaster. These letters also tell two parallel but very different stories of love and devotion between each writer and his respective male partner. The correspondence during the war years juxtapose the strikingly different worlds in which Forster and Isherwood were living: the London area during the Blitz and the southern California community of exiled writers, respectively. In the post-war letters the two friends continue their ongoing conversation to find a suitable ending for Forster’s groundbreaking but yet unpublished novel, Maurice. This complete collection of very readable letters, thoroughly annotated and with an informative introduction, will be of great interest for literary scholars and general readers.

4-0 out of 5 stars Visual Introduction to E. M. Forster
This fairly small book is a gem for every Forster fan. Not only does it present a succint but complete biography of this great British writer but illustrates it with numerous pictures (photographs mainly but also drawings and paintings) of himself and his friends and relatives.
If you are a Forster fan this is a good place to start your adventure with his biographies but it will certainly only make your crave for more and here is when larger and more detailed works of Furbank and Beauman will come handy. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
By 'indirections', Kenneth Graham means 'the deployment of a radically new openness, obliquity, and contradictoriness of narrative forms, both in the large-scale movements and in the smallest details of descriptive language, scene, and dialogue'. The three masters of indirection in the early modern novel are Henry James, Joseph Conrad and E. M. Forster. Though very different from each other, each employs a technically innovative style which articulates a response to a world of uncertainty and danger. Professor Graham's study follows this common outlook through analyses of eleven narratives including James' What Maisie Knew and The Golden Bowl, Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Nostromo, and Forster's Howards End and A Passage to India. It does so in an empirical critical idiom which seeks to combine textual awareness with a concern for referentiality and for a common language of literary response. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Most studies of E.M. Forster's work have been written from a Western viewpoint. Those who have approached "A Passage to India" have done so assuming that the central questions concern the English characters who appear in the novel. The stance of the person telling the story is assumed to be that of a sceptical and amused Englishman, with a penchant for occasional passages of "local colour". Yet the first character to appear, Aziz, is an Indian and the scene is presented through his eyes. Much of the novel, indeed, is written not from an English, or any particular national viewpoint but from a more complicated stance, out of which Forster tries to present a sympathetic view of the Indians, while not losing an objective view. The poetic passages are not there to simply add emotional colour but to shift the viewpoint so that the reader may begin to enter into a different world of discourse - one in which questions about the nature of the world are considered not from a sceptical standpoint, but from the very centre of one's being. This was not an easy aim; indeed the difficulty of achieving it may provide one reason why Forster had a sense of failure as he concluded his novel.Beginning from the Indian questions that haunt the novel, this book shows what happens if one reads the novel with them at its centre. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
In Howards End, Forster remarks that the Imperialist "hopes to inherit the earth" and with the strong temptation he has to acclaim it "as a superyeoman, who carries his country's virtue overseas". He then adds: "But the Imperialist is not what he thinks or seems". He is a destroyer. He prepares the way for cosmopolitanism, and though his ambitions may be fulfilled the earth that he inherits will be grey". This simple notion is masterly expressed in A Passage to India, which provides a rich diversity of historical contexts and implies political imperatives urging us to rethink the complex relationship between East and West not as simple confrontation but rather as deeply rooted in cultural differences far beyond the realm of imperialist sensibility.With the support of material by Forster published here for the first time, this volume explores the realm of Forster's politics and imperialism.
