Synopsis: Distant Desire focuses on the homoerotic desire coded in all of Forster's novels and illustrates how Forster's aesthetics have been formed by the homoerotic tradition of English Literature. The theme of male friendship occurs in every novel and is connected with the theme of journey. The ideal of male love is conceived as a distant desire. The underlying theme of male friendship in Forster's narratives constantly subverts the conventional, heterosexual plot of the novels. This work combines an interpretation of homoerotic themes with the cultural theories of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, such as Classicism and Orientalism.

About the Author: The Author: Parminder Kaur Bakshi studied and lectured at the University of Delhi, India before coming to England to receive her Ph.D. She has worked at several universities in the U.K. and her academic interests include race and gender studies in addition to literature. She has written on homosexuality and Orientalism in Edward Carpenter and Late Victorian Radicalism and in a collection of essays on A Passage to India in the Theory in Practice Series.
