This volume presents a revision of gay criticism and focuses on E.M. Forster's place in the emerging field of queer studies. Many previous critics of Forster downplayed his homosexuality or read Forster in terms of gay liberation. This collection situates Forster within the Bloomsbury Group and examines his relations to major figures such as Henry James, Edward Carpenter, and Virginia Woolf. Particular attention is paid to Forster's several accounts of India and their troubled relation to the British colonial enterprise. Analyzing a wide range of Forster's work, the authors examine material from Forster's undergraduate writings to stories written more than a half-century later.
