Maurice – by E M Forster (Paperback) Description:



Maurice – by Set in the elegant Edwardian world of Cambridge undergraduate life this story by a master novelist introduces us to Maurice Hall when he is fourteen. We follow him through public school and Cambridge and into his fathers firm. In a highly structured society Maurice is a conventional young man in almost every way–except that his is homosexual. Written during 1913 and 1914 immediately after Howards End and not published until 1971 Maurice was ahead of its time in its theme and in its affirmation that love between men can be happy. Happiness Forster wrote is its keynote…. In Maurice I tried to create a character who was completely unlike myself or what I supposed myself to be: someone handsome healthy bodily attractive mentally torpid not a bad businessman and rather a snob. Into this mixture I dropped an ingredient that puzzles him wakes him up torments him and finally saves him. Maurice – by E M Forster (Paperback)
