Overview

This engaging collection of articles, essays, reviews, and poems, written over a period of thirty years by the author of A Passage to India, A Room with a View, and Howards End, contains such well-known pieces as "Notes on the English Character, " "Adrift in India, " and "Me, Them and You." Also collected are essays on literary figures -- T. S. Eliot, Joseph Conrad, Jane Austen, and others -- whose work Forster especially admired. Whether writing on the consolations of history or on the strengthening power of art, Forster's prose is at once distinguished and entertaining.

Editorial Reviews

George Dangerfield
Anyone who misses reading this book will be missing one of the most exquisite pleasures that the contemporary market can afford. -- Saturday Review
John Crowe Ransom
One of the notable literary miscellanies of our time. It cannot often be said that the critical intelligence of a writer never wanders, and yet that his writing is always effortless and charming. -- Yale Review
