    Adventures do occur, but not punctually Life rarely gives us what we want at the moment we consider appropriate Illustrations from the Folio Edition by Ian Ribbons.Adela Quested and Mrs Moore have journeyed to India with the intention of arranging a marriage between Adela and Mrs Moore s son Ronny Heaslop He is the British magistrate of the city of Chandrapore He is imperial, muchso than when Adela knew him in EnglandIndia had developed sides of his character that she had neve

    Make no mistake This, to me, will always be Forster s magnum opus even though I am yet to even acquaint myself with the synopses of either Howards End or Maurice Maybe it is the handicap of my Indian sentimentality that I cannot remedy on whim to fine tune my capacity for objective assessment But strip away a colonial India from this layered narrative Peel away the British Raj too and the concomitant censure that its historical injustices invite And you will find this to be Forster s

    A Passage to India seems a bolder statement on Colonialism and racism than ever The Indians are thoughtful and droll, speaking about the trouble making friends with Englishmen, who become less personable the longer they are in India The British seem to a man all about keeping the Indian down, of holding the colony by force The writing is beautiful I just finished E.L Doctorow s The March, which errs on the purplish side at times There s no such overwriting here Even when one readssl A Pass

    In a novel with the line a perfectly adjusted organism would be silent it is no surprise that the centre of this cloud of writing is the idea of the difficulty, or the possible impossibility of communication and direct connection between people.Instead understanding has to be intuitive and incommunicable, Mrs Moore knows nothing has happened but can t convince her son, how she knows or how Professor Godbole knows about her and the wasp is unclear and if we don t like telepathy as an answer the In a novel

    The past the infinite greatness of the past thrilled Walt Whitman in A Passage to India A quarter of a century later, Forster borrowed Whitman s title, but with a very different mood in mind In place of the American s wild eyed certainties, Forster gives us echoes and confusion instead of epic quests of the soul, there is only an eternal impasse of personal and cultural misunderstanding.Animals and birds are half seen, unidentified the landscape is a featureless blur motives are illog The past the infinite grea

    This is so far my favorite book by E.M Forster I tried A Room with a View first and gave that three stars This one, set in India probably about a decade or two before independence, mirrors British colonialism and the multicultural diversity of the land This one has muchmeat on its bones Religion, multi ethnicity, colonialism, imperialism, the dogged belief in the superiority of the rulers over the ruled and most specifically how very difficult it is to communicate over cultural barrie This is so far my favorite book by E.M F

    Written in 1924 this so called literary classic and 1001 book is set against the backdrop of the British Raj and the slow move towards Independence This book has been showered with awards I gave my copy of a good shake just to see if any of the awards had got stuck between the pages although personally the only award I would be inclined to hand out for E.M Forster s most famous novel would be the highly coveted shovelmonkey1 pillow award for producing an epic snooze fest I read this book w Written in 1924 this so called literary cl

    Can there ever be friendship between the colonizer and colonized Individuals from each group Can that trust last Can it flourish What happens when events put it under stress Forster has no easy answers in this book, as he dissects British colonial rule in India, and its impact on Indians and the British who have come there expressly to rule over India Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to th Can there ever be friendship between the colonizer
