Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A chance acquaintance brings together the prosperous bourgeois Wilcox family and the clever, cultured, and idealistic Schlegel sisters. As clear-eyed Margaret develops a friendship with Mrs. Wilcox, the impetuous Helen brings into their midst a young bank clerk named Leonard Bast, who lives at the edge of poverty and ruin. When Mrs. Wilcox dies, her family discovers that she wants to leave her country home, Howards End, to Margaret. Thus Forster sets in motion a chain of events that will entangle three different families and brilliantly portrays their aspirations for personal and social harmony.

Synopsis:

In Howard's End, E.M. Forster unveils the English character as never before, exploring the underlying class warfare involving three distinct groups--a wealthy family bound by the rules of tradition and property, two independent, cultured sisters, and a young man living on the edge of poverty. The source of their conflict--Howards End, a house in the countryside which ultimately becomes a symbol of conflict within British society.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. xxix-xxx).

Peter Anderson, January 26, 2008 (view all comments by Peter Anderson)
A simply wonderful novel about social classes in early-20th Century England, how members of those classes interact and what responsibility, if any, they have toward each other. After being dismissive of her early in the novel, I actually found myself cheering for Margaret at the end.
