Author Bio
E. M. Forster
E. M. Forster's father died when he was a baby, and he was raised in an English country village by his mother and various female relatives. At Kings College, Cambridge, he discovered his homosexuality and became a member of the Apostles, in which he met Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, and Roger Fry--the foundations of what is known as the Bloomsbury Group, of which Forster also became a member. Thanks to a legacy from a great-aunt, Forster was able to support himself and also to travel widely in Italy, Austria, and Greece--places that would become useful to him as a writer. Between 1903 and 1910 he wrote his four "Edwardian" works--the novels that have gained him wide acclaim as a delineator of English upper-middle-class lives and manners. His 1912 trip to India inspired his masterpiece, A PASSAGE TO INDIA. He stopped writing fiction after World War II (in which he was a prominent pacifist), except for MAURICE, his posthumously published novel that dealt overtly with homosexuality. In addition to his fiction and essays, Forster is also the author of the influential ASPECTS OF THE NOVEL, in which he emphasized the novel's value as a mirror of human experience. Forster became a fellow of King's College and lived there until just before his death of a massive stroke at the age of 81.

Praise

Guardian (London)
"WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD is not at all the kind of book that its title suggests. It is not mawkish or sentimental or commonplace....It is a protest against the worship of conventionalities, and especially against the conventionalities of "refinement" and "respectability"; it takes the form of a sordid comedy culminating, unexpectedly and with a real dramatic force, in a grotesque tragedy." 08/30/1905
