About this title


This title contains notes and quotes, dealing with novels, poems, and plays. The self-revealing ideas for possible subjects and characters for a new novel are expressed with a regretful suspense, and suggest this text approximates Forster's unwritten novel.

From Library Journal:

Forster made entries in this commonplace book from 1925 through 1968, 18 months before his death. The book brings tegether quotations from his reading, musings on his life and times, and random odds and ends (such as the plan of a large garden he kept.) The early entries on fiction make up the raw material for the influential Aspects of the Novel. The book is most valuable for its self-portrait of Forster during those long years of miscellaneous prose after A Passage to India . Forster's thoughts are laced with self-doubt and laments about his "central weakness which prevents me from concentrating." An intriguing hodgepodge that will be of interest primarily to scholars.

Terms of Sale:

BOOKS SHIPPED WITHIN MISSOURI are subject to a 8.450 sales tax. Books shipped outside of the US are subject to a small surcharge.

Shipping Terms:


Orders to be shipped outside the US can be paid for either a) through ABE, in which case there will be a surcharge of about 5-10% due to the very high postal shipping charges by the U.S. Post Office, and the fact that ABE's fees apply both to the price of the book and the shipping; or, b)you can pay by way of PayPal, in which case there is no surcharge.  If you choose to pay via ABE I will inform you of the amount of the surcharge as an 'extra charge,' which you can either accept or cancel the order.

 Domestically, you can order the book through ABE, and if possible, pay via PayPal or through ABE.

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Since recent changes in postal rates, shipping overseas has become very expensive and the cost unpredictable, depending as much on size and shape of a book as weight.  The matrix prices are very unreliable.  All packages now go Priority Mail (airmail).  Contrary to the matrix, there is no 'standard' rate offered by the post office here.  In general (there are exceptions)smaller books (octavos) weighing less than 4 pounds, can generally be shipped for $24.75.  Larger books, in general, are $61.75 though this price may be a bit higher or lower.  Shipping to Canada is considerably less. Please contact me before ordering and I will send you the actual shipping cost.  Please do not rely on the matrix. Also, all books now go Air Mail, and the Post Office estimates delivery in 6-10 days.  There is no longer any ground service.  Insurance (where available) is optional.
