E. M. Forster as Critic Hardback
by Rukun Advani
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literary Theory series
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.
