Description - Worlding Forster by Stuart Christie

Focusing on the literary works and career of British novelist E.M. Forster (1879-1970), this book argues that the writer adapted a much older literary form, the pastoral, to the purposes of writing about modern British experience. The publication points out that Forster's pastoral fiction challenged conventional parameters for the British novel, allowing for the emergence of his subsequent modernist classic, A Passage to India (including its critique of British imperialism). The monograph also provides a rationale for why Forster subsequently turned his artistic focus beyond Britain, embracing public radio under the direction of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
