E. M. Forster was a 20th century novelist, short story writer and essayist. His writings empathize the class differences in British society. Forster is best known for his novels Howard's End, A Passage to India and A Room with a View. The Longest Journey published in 1907 was in part autobiographical. The intellectual and social life of Cambridge University suits the physically impaired, orphaned student Ricky Elliot. Later Ricky marries a shallow, domineering woman, Agnes Pembroke, and, at her urging, cheats his illegitimate half-brother Stephen. Tragedy soon strikes the Elliot family.

8 1.5-hour cassettesFrom the Inside Flap:
In this searching tragicomedy of manners, personalities, and world views, E. M. Forster explores the "idea of England" he would later develop in "Howard's End. Bookish, sensitive, and given to wild enthusiasms, Rickie Elliot is virtually made for a life at Cambridge, where he can subsist on a regimen of biscuits and philosophical debate. But the love-smitten Rickie leaves his natural habitat to marry the devastatingly practical Agnes Pembroke, who brings with her -- as a sort of dowry -- a teaching position at the abominable Sawston School.
