E. M. Forster as Critic, Hardback Book


This title, first published in 1984, is a study of E.

M. Forster as a liberal-humanist thinker and socio-literary critic.

Advani discusses Forster's ideas on man, society, politics, religion, art, aesthetics, fiction and literary criticism.

The author examines why Forster was impelled from fiction towards socio-literary criticism and propaganda for art within the political and cultural context of post-Great War Britain.

The book argues for Forster's continuing importance as much more than a skilful novelist.

It will be of interest to students of English cultural history, literary theory and criticism, and the work of E.

M. Forster.
