Description : Read Now Concerning E M Forster by Frank Kermode and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a major reassessment of the great english novelist this impressive new book by the celebrated british critic frank kermode examines hitherto neglected aspects of the novelist e. m. forster's life and work. kermode is interested to see how it was that this apparently shy, reclusive man should have claimed and kept such a central position in the english writing of his time, even though for decades he composed no fiction and he was not close to any of his great contemporaries—henry james, ford madox ford, joseph conrad, james joyce. concerning e. m. forster has at its core the clark lectures that kermode gave at cambridge university in 2007 on the subject of forster, eighty years after forster himself gave those lectures, which became aspects of the novel. kermode reappraised the influence and meaning of that great work, assessed the significance of forster's profound musicality (britten thought him the most musical of all writers), and offered a brilliant interpretation of forster's greatest work, a passage to india. but there is more to concerning e. m. forster than that. thinking about forster vis-àvis other great modern writers, noting his interest in proust and gide and his lack of curiosity about american fiction, and observing that forster was closest to the people who shared not his literary interests or artistic vocation but, rather, his homosexuality, kermode's book offers a wise, original, and persuasive new portrait not just of forster but of twentieth-century english letters.

Description : Read Now E M Forster by Wendy Moffat and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. one of the great mysteries in the life of e. m. forster (1879-1970) is why, after the publication of a passage to india in 1924, he never published another novel although he lived to be 90. in wendy moffat's biography, based on a lifetime's dedication to her subject, we gain extraordinary insights into a man with a gift for writing fiction of great humanity, warmth and humour, who realised early that the society of his time would not allow him to publish the fiction he really wanted to write. at the end of a passage to india, his readers were left with the melancholy sight of aziz and fielding, friends of different races and cultures, riding out of the novel down separate paths. in real life, although frustrated at not being able to write out of his true self - it would not be until after his death that maurice, his novel of a homosexual affair, would be published - e. m.forster led a full and energetic life. he was a successful broadcaster, a brilliant essayist (abinger harvest and two cheers for democracy are still must-reads) and a leading figure in europe's intellectual life. moffat argues that with his support for colleagues from lowes dickinson and radclyffe hall to christopher isherwood and benjamin britten, and his quiet championing of humanistic values, he helped create the more tolerant world we now enjoy. moffat's achievement is not to show that forster was homosexual (this is well known) but how deeply his ideas on individual freedom, tolerance, sexuality and love, permeated every act and aspect of his life.

Description : Read Now Forms Of Attention by Frank Kermode and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. sir frank kermode, the british scholar, instructor, and author, was an inspired critic. forms of attention is based on a series of three lectures he gave on canon formation, or how we choose what art to value. the essay on botticelli traces the artist’s sudden popularity in the nineteenth century for reasons that have more to do with poetry than painting. in the second essay, kermode reads hamlet from a very modern angle, offering a useful (and playful) perspective for a contemporary audience. the final essay is a defense of literary criticism as a process and conversation that, while often conflating knowledge with opinion, keeps us reading great art and working with—and for—literature. “kermode’s volume has the virtue of a lecturer’s accessible style designed for a listening audience. it is also self-consciously spare of ‘naked criticism.’ there is, nonetheless, an abundance of learned commentary, steady substance, and unveiled critical excellence. which is to say the volume is a useful and engaging reflection of its learned author.”—london review of books

Description : Read Now Social Fragmentation In Modernist English Literature by Jan H. Hauptmann and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. essay from the year 2006 in the subject english language and literature studies - literature, grade: 1,7, queen's university belfast, 6 entries in the bibliography, language: english, abstract: this essay will focus on two modernist works by virginia woolf and e. m. forster, which might in fact be regarded as very different concerning their subject matter and style. when forster completed his fourth published novel howards end in 1910, europe was on the edge of the first world war, while woolf’s novel between the acts – finished in november 1942 – was created under the impacts of fascism, the frightening force of the second world war, and the blitz in great britain. despite a relatively long time span between these works, the novels are dealing with similar modernist aspects insofar as they are both considering the changes of a society under the influence of modern life, resulting in a social fragmentation caused by political developments within europe. this paper will at first reveal the indications of social fragmentations worked into the novels and, secondly, find out if forster and woolf are actually providing a solution to the upcoming problems within their artwork. the political tensions in forster’s howards end predominantly arise between the characters of the schlegels and the wilcoxes, two middle class families with completely different social backgrounds. as the director of a rubber company with african holdings, henry wilcox is the epitome of british industrialism and imperialism, while the schlegel sisters (margaret and helen) are representing quite the opposite.

Description : Read Now Aspects Of The Novel by E. M. Forster and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the renowned british novelist’s “casual and wittily acute guidance” on reading—and writing—great fiction (harper’s). renowned for such classics as a room with a view, howards end, and a passage to india, e. m. forster was one of britain’s—and the world’s—most distinguished fiction writers, a frequent nominee for the nobel prize in literature. in this collection of lectures delivered at trinity college, cambridge, in 1927, he takes a wide-ranging look at english-language novels—with specific examples from such masters as dickens and austen—discussing the elements they all have in common. using a witty, informal tone and drawing as well on his extensive readings in french and russian literature, forster discusses his ideas in reference to such figures as tolstoy, dostoevsky, and proust; explains the difference between “flat” and “round” characters and between plot and story; and ultimately provides an “admirable and delightful” education for anyone who appreciates the art of a good book (the new york times).

Description : Read Now A Great Unrecorded History by Wendy Moffat and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a revelatory look at the intimate life of the great author—and how it shaped his most be loved works with the posthumous publication of his long-suppressed novel maurice in 1970, e. m. forster came out as a homosexual— though that revelation made barely a ripple in his literary reputation. as wendy moffat persuasively argues in a great unrecorded history, forster's homosexuality was the central fact of his life. between wilde's imprisonment and the stonewall riots, forster led a long, strange, and imaginative life as a gay man. he preserved a vast archive of his private life—a history of gay experience he believed would find its audience in a happier time. a great unrecorded history is a biography of the heart. moffat's decade of detective work—including first-time interviews with forster's friends—has resulted in the first book to integrate forster's public and private lives. seeing his life through the lens of his sexuality offers us a radically new view—revealing his astuteness as a social critic, his political bravery, and his prophetic vision of gay intimacy. a great unrecorded history invites us to see forster— and modern gay history—from a completely new angle.
