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.

Forster's writing is known for its sympathetic nature and that could be seen well throughout his life as he volunteered for the International Red Cross during World War I. In his later years Forster became a well known public figure, first as a broadcaster on BBC radio and then as an honorary fellow of King's College. Some of Forster's best known novels are Howards End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India.Review:
Perhaps the most brilliant, the most dramatic, and the most passionate of [Forster's] works. (Lionel Trilling)
