Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The self-interested disregard of a dying woman's bequest, an impulsive girl's attempt to help an impoverished clerk, and the marriage between an idealist and a materialist — all intersect at a Hertfordshire estate called Howards End. The fate of this beloved country home symbolizes the future of England itself in E. M. Forster's exploration of social, economic, and philosophical trends, as exemplified by three families: the Schlegels, symbolizing the idealistic and intellectual aspect of the upper classes; the Wilcoxes, representing upper-class pragmatism and materialism; and the Basts, embodying the aspirations of the lower classes. Written in 1910, Howards End won international acclaim for its insightful portrait of English life during the post-Victorian era.

Synopsis:

Widely regarded as one of the most important novelists of the 20th century, E. M. Forster was fascinated by social conflicts. In this novel (which established the author's reputation), he not only reveals, with gentle irony, the moral and emotional deficiencies of the English upper classes but also reconciles differences between two families — the Schlegels and the Wilcoxes. Members of the former are idealistic, intellectual, and cosmopolitan in outlook; the latter — conservative, wealthy, and materialistic. Both are profoundly affected by a turn of events when they share a comfortable English country house called Howard's End.
