About the Author

Edward Morgan Forster was born on January 1, 1879, in London, England. He never knew his father, who died when Forster was an infant. Forster graduated from King's College, Cambridge, with B.A. degrees in classics (1900) and history (1901), as well as an M.A. (1910). In the mid-1940s he returned to mostrar mais Cambridge as a professor, living quietly there until his death in 1970. Forster was named to the Order of Companions of Honor to the Queen in 1953. Forster's writing was extensively influenced by the traveling he did in the earlier part of his life. After graduating from Cambridge, he lived in both Greece and Italy, and used the latter as the setting for the novels Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and A Room with a View (1908). The Longest Journey was published in 1907. Howard's End was modeled on the house he lived in with his mother during his childhood. During World War I, he worked as a Red Cross Volunteer in Alexandria, aiding in the search for missing soldiers; he later wrote about these experiences in the nonfiction works Alexandria: A History and Guide and Pharos and Pharillon. His two journeys to India, in 1912 and 1922, resulted in A Passage to India (1924), which many consider to be Forster's best work; this title earned the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Forster wrote only six novels, all prior to 1925 (although Maurice was not published until 1971, a year after Forster's death, probably because of its homosexual theme). For much of the rest of his life, he wrote literary criticism (Aspects of the Novel) and nonfiction, including biographies (Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson), histories, political pieces, and radio broadcasts. Howard's End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India have all been made into successful films. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Lucy Honeychurch está em sua primeira viagem à Itália com sua prima Charlotte quando conhece o intelectualmente desafiador, mas socialmente inaceitável George Emerson. Eles compartilham um beijo apaixonado, mas Charlotte acaba com o caso. Lucy, mais tarde , fica noiva do mais aceitável e arrogante Cecil Vyse, o que parece selar-lhe o destino. Mas, de volta à Inglaterra, uma série de coincidências traz George para o círculo social de Lucy mais uma vez. Ela terá força para escolher coragem, verdade e amor sobre as convenções? O romance clássico de E. M. Forster versa sobre as consequências e recompensas de ser-fiel à sua verdadeira natureza.… (mais)

Um livro engraçado, que começa muito bem e vai ficando cada vez mais vago a medida que os capítulos vão passando. Os primeiros "aspectos" - Forster trata de seis - são exemplificados com vários exemplos e a técnica de comparar autores funciona muito bem.

Enfim, um livro bom e, embora James Wood (How Fiction Works) não esteja errado quando diz que este é um livro que "hoje parece impreciso", também não está errado quando diz que ele é "canônico por boas razões."
