Description

First published in 1910, "Howards End" is the novel that earned E. M. Forster recognition as a major writer.
At its heart lie two families--the wealthy and business-minded Wilcoxes and the cultured and idealistic Schlegels. When the beautiful and independent Helen Schlegel begins an impetuous affair with the ardent Paul Wilcox, a series of events is sparked--some very funny, some very tragic--that results in a dispute over who will inherit Howards End, the Wilcoxes' charming country home.
As much about the clash between individual wills as the clash between the sexes and the classes, "Howards End" is a novel whose central tenet, "Only connect," remains a powerful prescription for modern life.
Introduction by Alfred Kazan

About the Author
Edward Morgan Forster (E. M. Forster) was an English novelist, short-story writer and essayist. Born in 1879, Forster is known for his examination of how class difference and hypocrisy in British society during the beginning of the twentieth century influenced personal connections. These themes are best represented in his novels A Room with a View, A Passage to India, and Howard's End. Forster died of a stroke in 1970 at the age of 91.
