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.
