    PDF NEW [Howards End] E.M. Forster Í 8 summary Forster is the Jane Austen of the 20th century He clearly read her novels and fell in love And this makes him rather unusual amongst his literary peers He didn’t do anything new; he didn’t write with any particular passion or any attempt at breaking a literary boundary His writing is relatively safe compared to the likes of Joyce or WoolfBut in such safety a certain simple beauty can be found because Howard’s End is a novel about reco

review Howards End

Howards End summary Ï 8 This edition of Forster's classic novel reprints the authoritative text of the 1973 Abinger Edition together with five critical essays especially. The title refers to a British country home not a mansion like a Downton Abbey but a small comfortable home with charm Although it seems that the story is set at about the same time as Downton Abbey The story revolves around two sisters who on separate visits fall in love with the home and in a very round about way end up living in it The main there of the book is British class structure The two sisters are liberal using modern terminology They attend meetings of progressive women s groups where one of them gives a presentation and shocks her audience by arguing that such groups need to help the poor not by giving them free libraries museums and concerts but by giving them money A kind of introduction by Lionel Trilling on the back cover tells us that Howard s End is about England s fate It is a story of the class warthe plot is about the rights of property about a destroyed will and testament and rightful and wrongful heirs It asks the uestion who shall inherit England Both sisters are aging their parents have died and they are heading into spinsterhood However the older one marries and she marries the owner of Howards End who is a Darwinist His attitude to be concise is I m paraphrasing there will always be poor nothing we can do they are not like us if you give them money they ll just blow it because they re re too stupid to know what to do with it And this is a uote The poor are poor and one s sorry for them but there it is As civilization moves forward the shoe is bound to pinch in places and it s absurd to think that anyone is responsible personally The sisters are not wealthy but they are comfortable from an inheritance and they hang out in upper class society So this is a second theme the sisters have an inherent cultured grace that comes from being part of the aristocracy the instinctive wisdom that the past can alone bestow had descended upon her that wisdom to which we give the clumsy name of aristocracy A married struggling poor young man that the sisters take under their wing is trying to improve himself and become cultured by reading But he eventually realizes that he could never follow them not if he read for ten hours a day Some are born cultured the rest had better go in for whatever comes easy We stand upon money as upon islands It is so firm beneath our feet that we forget its very existence money there s no nourishment in it You pass it to the lower classes and they pass it back to you and this you call social intercourse or mutual endeavor when it s mutual priggishness There s not a lot of plot other than that of the older sister coming around to marry the wealthy older man and after they are married she struggles to get his family to accept her And both sisters get involved with helping the poor young man but the road to hell The younger sister gets involved with him and a person ends up getting killed manslaughter Another theme of the book or appropriately motto is only connect The sisters are good at it the wealthy aristocrat is a disaster There is good writing Some passages I likedOn the poor young man looking ill at ease in his best clothes She wondered whether it paid to give up the glory of the animal for a tail coast and a couple of ideas The church itself stood in the village once But there it attracted so many worshippers that the devil in a pet snatched it from its foundations and poised it on an inconvenient knoll three uarters of a mile away Their interview was short and absurd They had nothing in common but the English language and tried by its help to express what neither of them understood E M Forster 1879 1970 the author is best know for A Room With a View with Howard s End and A Passage to India about eually well known after that You can tell that the author loved London and the growth and dynamism of the city at that time I enjoyed the book very much Top photo from tbn0gstaticcomPhoto of the author from blukbritishlibrary

Howards End summary Ï 8 Prepared for this volume that read Howards End from five contemporary critical perspectives Each critical essay is accompanied by a succinct intro. 35 stars A place as well as a person may catch the glow Don t you see that all this leads to comfort in the end It is part of the battle against sameness Differences eternal differences planted by God in a single family so that there may always be colour sorrow perhaps but colour in the daily greyHowards End is the second book in my endeavor to re read all of EM Forster s major novels Having read five of these in my late teens I decided that it would be fun to approach them with years wisdom and appreciation for literature on my side Well I don t necessarily claim much in the way of wisdom in fact I sure felt a lot smarter back in the day so perhaps experience would be a better word In any case my first book on the list A Room with a View proved to be a marvelous success I had high hopes for Howards End The result Well I will say that I am still a great admirer of Forster s vision and brilliance I adored this in theory than in the execution perhaps If I could boil down this piece to those passages I highlighted and there were loads of them then this would have been five stars without a doubt If I could have removed some of the superfluous philosophizing that sometimes left me literally closing my eyes from time to time then this would be sitting on my favorites shelf I wanted to love this Instead I appreciated it and ultimately liked itThere is so much one could say about the themes in this book There is of course the overlying theme to connect This word connect appears repeatedly throughout Forster introduces us to the Schlegels a very comfortable perhaps middle class family They appreciate art literature and discussion much like us dear Goodreaders One can t help but become attached to them in particular the two sisters Margaret and Helen Oh how I would love to sit down with them and have an intelligent conversation about books music and women s rights Their lives become decisively intertwined with the Wilcox family representing the wealthy conservative and less imaginative set they avoided the personal note in life All Wilcoxes did It did not seem to them of supreme importance The Schlegel s desire to connect with one and all further entangles them with the impoverished Basts in particular Leonard Bast an intelligent young man who aspires to than what his lower class would readily allow He felt that he was being done good to and that if he kept on with Ruskin and the ueen s Hall Concerts and some pictures by Watts he would one day push his head out of the grey waters and see the universe The three families clearly illustrate the distinct differences in the social classes existing within pre World War I England Is it possible to cross these social boundaries The Schlegels would like to think so and in fact strive to do just that Their efforts are always endearing occasionally comical and sometimes disastrous At the heart of this novel too is Howards End the house one of the Wilcox s family homes Howards End is where Ruth Wilcox was born To her the house has a spirit Her husband and children do not feel the same affinity to the house as she But Margaret Schlegel with whom she strikes up a friendship understands places and homes Howards End takes on a life of its own until it becomes akin to a vital character in the novel She paced back into the hall and as she did so the house reverberated But it was the heart of the house beating faintly at first then loudly martially It dominated the rain The rural setting of Howards End is further contrasted with the chaos of London It seems to be the heart of the country for those like the Schlegels She recaptured the sense of space which is the basis of all earthly beauty and starting from Howards End she attempted to realize England Eventually good intentioned meddling has serious conseuences unlikely romances form and a rift develops and deepens both within and across families Is it possible to mend such a fracture or will it always be necessary to separate one class from another Aside from the relevant commentary regarding social and economic classes this novel also examines the differences between genders Forster is clearly an early champion for feminism and I applaud him once again for his progressive views regarding women s rights I admire the way he paints his female characters and they are turning out to be among my favorites in the literary world So you see there is much I truly liked about Howards End The themes the dialogue and many of the characters those elements shine Subtract the labored philosophizing as well as the freuent trespass of the author into the story and this would be all I had imagined it to be The other day I had the opportunity to watch the superb 1992 Merchant Ivory film adaptation which I highly recommend It truly sparkles and brings this to a whole new level I daresay I prefer the movie over the book you really must watch it if you haven t done so already It remains true to the heart of the story those parts I loved best35 stars rounded up to 4 Only connect the prose and the passion and both will be exalted and human love will be seen at its height Live in fragments no longer
