9781628737851: Great Novels of E. M. Forster: Where Angels Fear to Tread, The Longest Journey, A Room with a View, Howards End

A renaissance of E. M. Forster is certainly under way. The success of the many films based upon his novels demonstrates Forster’s appeal to the modern audience and his aptitude for entertaining a mass quantity of readers over several decades. Four of his best novels are brought together here in one volume:

Where Angels Fear to Tread
The Longest Journey
A Room with a View
Howards End

E. M. Forster’s characters are the most lifelike we have had since Jane Austen laid down the pen.” Virginia Woolf

[Forster] does not hesitate to kill off a character right after introducing him with a careful description which leads us to anticipate a larger role.” Louis Auchincloss

The shapeliness of his prose and his plotting still satisfies. The width remains piercing and seamlessly painless.” the New York Times

There is no questioning or resisting the charm of Mr. Forster. The Longest Journey steadily attains beauty.” Saturday Review

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

About the Author:

A graceful writer with a keen eye for the bittersweetness bound in differences of class and culture, E. M. Forster had an abbreviated but remarkably successful career as a novelist and established himself as one of England's most insightful 20th-century writers.

Edward Morgan Forster was born in London in 1879, attended Tonbridge School as a day boy, and went on to King's College, Cambridge, in 1897. With King's he had a lifelong connection and was elected to an Honorary Fellowship in 1946. He declared that his life as a whole had not been dramatic, and he was unfailingly modest about his achievements. Interviewed by the BBC on his eightieth birthday, he said: "I have not written as much as I'd like to... I write for two reasons: partly to make money and partly to win the respect of people whom I respect... I had better add that I am quite sure I am not a great novelist." Eminent critics and the general public have judged otherwise and in his obituaryThe Timescalled him "one of the most esteemed English novelists of his time."

He wrote six novels, four of which appeared before the First World War,Where Angels Fear to Tread(1905),The Longest Journey(1907),A Room with a View(1908), andHoward's End(1910). An interval of fourteen years elapsed before he publishedA Passage to India. It won both the Prix Femina Vie Heureuse and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.Maurice, his novel on a homosexual theme, finished in 1914, was published posthumously in 1971. He also published two volumes of short stories; two collections of essays; a critical work,Aspects of the Novel;The Hill of Devi, a fascinating record of two visits Forster made to the Indian State of Dewas Senior; two biographies; two books about Alexandria (where he worked for the Red Cross in the First World War); and, with Eric Crozier, the libretto for Britten's operaBilly Budd. He died in June 1970.
