About this title:
Synopsis:
An astonishingly frank and deeply autobiographical account of homosexual relationships in an era when love between men was not only stigmatised, but also illegal, E.M. Forster's Maurice is edited by P.N. Furbank with an introduction by David Leavitt in Penguin Classics. Maurice Hall is a young man who grows up confident in his privileged status and well aware of his role in society. Modest and generally conformist, he nevertheless finds himself increasingly attracted to his own sex. Through Clive, whom he encounters at Cambridge, and through Alec, the gamekeeper on Clive's country estate, Maurice gradually experiences a profound emotional and sexual awakening. A tale of passion, bravery and defiance, this intensely personal novel was completed in 1914 but remained unpublished until after Forster's death in 1970. Compellingly honest and beautifully written, it offers a powerful condemnation of the repressive attitudes of British society, and is at once a moving love story and an intimate tale of one man's erotic and political self-discovery. In his introduction, David Leavitt explores the significance of the novel in relation to Forster's own life and as a founding work of modern gay literature. This edition reproduces the Abinger text of the novel, and includes new notes, a chronology and further reading. E. M. Forster (1879-1970) was a noted English author and critic and a member of the Bloomsbury group. His first novel, Where Angels Fear To Tread appeared in 1905. The Longest Journey appeared in 1907, followed by A Room With A View (1908), based partly on the material from extended holidays in Italy with his mother. Howards End (1910) was a story that centred on an English country house and dealt with the clash between two families, one interested in art and literature, the other only in business. Maurice was revised several times during his life, and finally published posthumously in 1971. If you enjoyed Maurice, you might like Forster's A Room With a View, also available in Penguin Classics.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | With an introduction by David Leavitt | Der aus großbürgerlichem Elternhaus stammende Maurice verliebt sich während seines Studiums in den jungen Clive. Obwohl seine Freundschaft rein platonisch bleibt, wird Maurice gezwungen, die Universität zu verlassen. Erst als er den aus niedrigen Verhältnissen stammenden Alex kennenlernt, findet Maurice den Mut, sich zu seinen Gefühlen zu bekennen. | Sie sind gebildet und privilegiert. Sie sind jung und unerfahren. Und sie leben in der falschen Gesellschaft und zur falschen Zeit. Als Maurice und Clive in Cambridge ihre Liebe zueinander entdecken, ist Homosexualität noch ein kriminelles Delikt. Eine literarische Entdeckung: Fast ein halbes Jahrhundert unter Verschluss gehalten und erstmals nach dem Tod des Autors veröffentlicht, ist diese einfühlsam erzählte Liebesgeschichte ein mutiges Plädoyer und die Geschichte einer Selbstfindung: Der junge Börsenmakler Maurice Hall entdeckt, bekämpft und akzeptiert am Ende sich selbst und seine Homosexualität. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 206 gr | 232 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780141441139
