About this item
Although he is best known for his exquisite novels, E.M. Forster also wrote remarkable short stories. He referred to his stories as fantasies and his attraction to myth and magic is apparent in many of them. Like his novels, the stories whether they are set in Italy, Greece, India, and other places Forster visited, or in England itself contrast the freedom of paganism with the restraints of English civilization, the personal, sensual delights of the body with the impersonal, inhibiting rules imposed by society.
Rich in irony and alive with sharp observations on the surprises life holds, the stories often feature violent events, discomforting coincidences, and other disruptive happenings that throw the characters perceptions and beliefs off balance. This volume includes all twelve stories published during Forsters lifetime.
