New Casebooks #0001: E.M. Forster
Synopses & Reviews
E. M. Forster's novels have always been popular, but he does not belong to the heavyweight category of a 'modernist' and his achievement has often been slighted or reduced as being a celebration of 'Englishness' and the Edwardian era. This New Casebook draws together approaches to Forster's work from many aspects of new critical theory and establishes a new case for him as a figure of far more than merely conventional interest with a central place in the development of twentieth-century English literature.
Book News Annotation:
