Edward Morgan Forster was an English writer best known for his portrayals of Great Britain’s early 20th century working class. Forster was born to a middle-class family in London and his father died of tuberculosis when he was just 1 year old. Despite that early misfortune, Forster had a good upbringing and attended a well known public school before studying at King’s College of Cambridge University.

Forster’s sympathetic disposition shined through in much of his work as well as throughout his life which saw him volunteer for the International Red Cross during World War I. Forster also came to the defense of another well known but controversial English author named D.H. Lawrence, who fled England after World War I. By the end of World War I Forster had wrote all but one of his novels, A Passage to India, which earned him the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction. Forster would later become a well known public figure as he was a broadcaster on BBC radio and became an honorary fellow of King’s College.
