The Journals and Diaries of E. M. Forster
Sobre o livro
A writer of fiction, literary criticism, travel narratives and libretti, Edward Morgan Forster (1879-1970) is best known for his beautifully-structured novels which held a mirror up to the English class system. Though not a prolific novelist, Forster is nonetheless recognized as one of the giants of twentieth-century literature. This fascinating collection of diaries, travel journals and itineraries brings together all previously unpublished material Forster wrote which can be classed as 'memoir'.
A frank and lively diarist, Forster was not a dogged one, and his entries over the years are irregular and eclectic. Despite this the archival material, here newly transcribed, is substantial. Covering the period 1895-1967, the diaries and journals presented in these volumes will be of immense value to scholars researching this key figure of English literature.
They will also be a useful resource to those interested in travel during the first half of the twentieth century, as well as the wider literary and social history of the period.
