Product Description
What makes this masterpiece a pure delight for contemporary readers is its vibrant portrait of life in Edwardian England, and the wonderful characters who inhabit the charming old country house in Hertfordshire called Howards End. This cozy house becomes the object of an inheritance dispute between the upright conservative Wilcox family and the Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, sensitive and intuitive women loved by men willing to leap wide social barriers to fulfill their ardor. Through romantic entanglements, disappearing wills, and sudden tragedy, the conflict over the house emerges as a symbolic struggle for England’s future. Rich with the tradition, spirit, and wit distinctively English, Howards End is a remarkable novel of rare insight and understanding. As in his celebrated A Passage to India, E. M. Forster brings to vivid life a country and an era through the destinies of his unforgettable characters.

Thank you very much for sending this to me, it's a very kind gesture. Have a big pile of rings to read at the moment, but I do like Forster's work, so this could be quite high up the TBR pile! Thank you again.

Really didn't enjoy this. I've found his work hard to read in the past, and to get into, but this was just too hard and for me, boring. Am disappointed, I had high hopes of it!
