This new study by Professor Shaheen examines the way that E.M. Forster, with honesty, intelligence and compassion, presents a complex, cultural engagement of colonial Britain and colonised India in his works. Forster's experience in Egypt during the First World War had a profound impact on his life and writing, and Shaheen here offers a reassessment of this experience. He explores Forster's use of raw materials, including his journalistic writings, essays and letters in his work, demonstrating how Forster's fiction can be read in the wider context of culture and imperialism, particularly in the lens of Said's theoretical views in 'resistance and opposition'. Includes a Foreword by Professor John Beer.

Descrizione libro Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 2004. 213 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In Howards End , Forster remarks that the Imperialist hopes to inherit the earth and with the strong temptation he has to acclaim it as a superyeoman, who carries his country s virtue overseas . He then adds: But the Imperialist is not what he thinks or seems. He is a destroyer. He prepares the way for cosmopolitanism, and though his ambitions may be fulfilled the earth that he inherits will be grey . This simple notion is masterly expressed in A Passage to India , which provides a rich diversity of historical contexts and implies political imperatives urging us to rethink the complex relationship between East and West not as simple confrontation but rather as deeply rooted in cultural differences far beyond the realm of imperialist sensibility. With the support of material by Forster published here for the first time, this volume explores the realm of Forster s politics and imperialism. Codice libro della libreria APC9780333741368
