The writings of E. M. Forster

£19.99

Product description

In 1938, when this study of E M Forster's work was first published, his reputation as a writer seemed to have reached its height. Yet in 1972, just after his death, it is even higher than then and his work appeals as greatly as ever to generations born long after his novels were first published. Nor has Rose Macaulay's book on his writing been superseded, though there have been many other valuable studies of his work. For one thing, so much of that Forster wrote had already been published by 1938; for another, Miss Macaulay was herself a writer who possessed many of the qualities -- particularly the sense of comedy -- that distinguished her subject.

Overall, this hardback book is in good condition. There is a stain on the front of the dust jacket, and some light foxing to the top and fore edges, but the book is otherwise free from damage, with clean and white pages throughout.
