The manuscripts of 'A passage to India' - ( Limited Numbered Edition)

£100.00

Product description

The process of writing of "A Passage to India" stretched over a decade. Forster began to write the book immediately after his first trip to India in 1912 but abandoned his work more or less one third into the novel. Years spent in Alexandria did not give him the necessary inspiration to take up writing, it happened only when the writer revisited India in 1922. On his return (nagged mercilessly by Leonard Woolf) Forster rewrote the existing drafts and completed the novel.
This volume is related page by page & line by line to A Passage To India itself in such a way that the reader can follow the successive revisions - whether of a single word, a sentence, a paragraph or a lengthy passage - that culminated in the published version. Unprecedented light is thus thrown on the composition of one of the world's great novels.
This volume was limited to an edition of 1500 numbered copies, this being number 1002.
