Edward novel “Maurice” although written nearly sixty years earlier,

Edward
Morgan Forster was an English novelist, essayist,short story writer,and critic.He
is a difficult writer to classify, as an Edwardian modernist he criticized
Victorian middle class mores in formally traditional novels.Forster published
five novels in his lifetime, all of them except The Longest
Journey, have been adapted into films.The
novel “Maurice” although written nearly sixty
years earlier, it was published a year after his death, in 1971.He never got to
finish his seventh novel, “Arctic Summer”.Through his writing, he tried to show
his personal views stressing that he was opposed to his country’s crippling
oppression of non-Europeans.The beginning of Forster’s early novels are all
intertwined.The first novel that was published in 1905 was actually Forster’s
third attempt at a novel.He had written fragmentary drafts of the English and
Italian halves of his The Lucy Novels which eventually became A
Room with a View in 1908.Forster’s first novel “Where Angels Fear to
Tread” was published in 1905, a story
dealing with Lilia, a young English widow who is amazed by Italy and Italians
and tries to escape her controlling and unbearable in-laws in England.The title
of this novel originates from a line in Alexander Pope’s An Essay on Criticism:
“For fools rush in where angels fear to tread”.The second novel of Forster’s
six published novels, “The Longest Journey” is a bildungsroman published in
1907.Despite having a reputation for being the least known of his novels,
Forest described it as the book that he’s most glad to have written and he did consider
it an autobiographical work.                                                                                         
                         “In it I
have managed to get nearer than elsewhere towards what was in my mind – or
rather towards that junction of mind with heart where the creative impulse
sparks.” (“Aspects of a Novel”, 1228)

In
1908, he published “A Room with a View”, being his lightest and most
optimistic work.He started this novel early as 1901, before any of his other
novels, its earliest versions are entitled “Lucy”, the story is both a romance and
a critique of English society at the beginning of the 20th century.The
book was adapted as a film of the same name in 1985.The fourth novel of Forster,
“Howards
End” (1910), considered as the second
most ambitious novel (A passage to India is viewed as his most ambitious novel),
brought Forster his first major success.It deals with relationships in turn-of-the-century
England, he attempts to take on the question of the British Empire and its position
in the world.”Howards End” was adapted as a film in 1991 by the Merchant-Ivory team.”Maurice”
written in 1913-1914, but published
posthumously, it is a homosexual love story, considered controversial, given that
Forster’s homosexuality had not been widely acknowledged.Critics continue to discuss
over the extent to which Forster’s sexuality and his personal activites influenced
his writing, especially in this book.
