Lightbulb Free (Kindle) E. M. Forster [Vintage 20th C Classic Author Literary Study/Biography]

E. M. Forster: A Biography by the late author Harry T. Moore (literary agency profile, Guggenheim Fellowship profile), a university professor and literary critic who was twice the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, is his vintage early 20th century author literature study cum literary biography of the titular late English author (Wikipedia) of classics including A Passage to India and A Room With A View (both previously MobileRead Book Club selections), which examines Forster's life and outlook using selected works in order to flesh out a portrait of his writing and personality as seen via his creations, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Odyssey imprint.

This was originally published in 1965 by Colombia University Press.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
Edward Morgan Forster is one of the most revered of modern English novelists…

His 1908 novel, A Room with a View, is his most optimistic work, while Howard’s End (1910) and A Passage to India (1924) brought him his greatest success, and are widely considered his greatest achievements.

But what was the nature of Forster's genius, and why are his books still so popular?

The value of his fiction lies to a great extent in his representative portraits of people.

On the title page of Howards End, Forster placed a phrase representing the philosophy of one of his characters, which is essentially his own philosophy - “Only connect.”

Forster’s main works revolve around the failure of people to communicate with one another satisfactorily, their failure to smash down the walls of prejudice that have risen between them and to establish among themselves the relationships that could be possible.

Given a wider application, Harry T. Moore sees this as the history of humanity in our time.

Forster, beginning his work early in this century of wars, saw from the first the schisms between people and the separate worlds they live in.

Harry T. Moore examines Forster’s five novels, and his collections of short stories to get to the heart of his writing and to shed light on the life of this remarkable man.
