E.M. Forster

(1879-1970)

English Author
 

Forster's life was one of studies and travels.

His father, an architect, died when of consumption when Forster was almost two years old.

His mother Lily gave him the awareness of injustice and the sense of propriety that appears in his novels.

He travelled to Italy, Greece,Germany, Egypt and India, becoming very acquainted with India in particular.

In Italy, he lived for several years, (like Goethe and Shelley)

These travels provided many of the backgrounds and situations for his novels and stories.


Forster's works are mainly:

Angels Fear to Tread (1905), The Longest Journey (1907), A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910), Maurice (1913-14, published 1971) and A Passage to India (1924).

Queen Elizabeth II granted to Forster the title of member of the Order of Companions of Honour in 1953, and he received the Order of Merit in January 1969.
