One of the greats of twentieth century British literature, E.M. Forster (1879-1970) was well-known in his day for his novels, short stories, and essays. In his pages we read of the essential dilemmas that the everyman and everywoman must face as they enter modern society. Urging honesty, courage, and human connection to his readers, Forster's own life was, interestingly, one of public renown and privately-held secrets. Along with his most notable works, A Room With a View, Howards End, Where Angels Fear to Tread, and A Passage to India, Forster's posthumously-published novel Maurice, about the experiences of a young man coming to terms with his own homosexuality, is thought to be somewhat autobiographical.
