E.M. Forster's meticulously-observed drama of class warfare exploring the conflict inherent within English society, soon to be a STARZ original miniseres starring Hayley Atwell ("Captain America") and written by Kenneth Lonergan ("Manchester by the Sea") "Only connect..." A chance acquaintance brings together the preposterous bourgeois Wilcox family and the clever, cultured and idealistic Schlegel sisters. As clear-eyed Margaret develops a friendship with Mrs Wilcox, the impetuous Helen brings into their midst a young bank clerk named Leonard Bast, who lives at the edge of poverty and ruin. When Mrs Wilcox dies, her family discovers that she wants to leave her country home, Howards End, to Margaret. Thus as Forster sets in motion a chain of events that will entangle three different families, he brilliantly portrays their aspirations to personal and social harmony. David Lodge's introduction provides an absorbing and eloquent overture to the 1910 novel that established Forster's reputation as an important writer, and that he himself later referred to as "my best novel." This edition also contains a note on the text, suggestions for further reading, and explanatory notes.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Hall,c1993., CBM9775, Considered by many to be E. M. Forster's greatest novel, Howards End is a beautifully subtle tale of two very different families brought together by an unusual event. The Schlegels are intellectuals, devotees of art and literature. The Wilcoxes are practical and materialistic, leading lives of "telegrams and anger." When the elder Mrs. Wilcox dies and her family discovers she has left their country home-Howards End-to one of the Schlegel sisters, a crisis between the two families is precipitated that takes years to resolve.Written in 1910, Howards End is a symbolic exploration of the social, economic, and intellectual forces at work in England in the years preceding World War I, a time when vast social changes were occurring. In the Schlegels and the Wilcoxes, Forster perfectly embodies the competing idealism and materialism of the upper classes, while the conflict over the ownership of Howards End represents the struggle for possession of the country's future. Forster refuses to take sides in this conflict. Instead he poses one of the book's central questions: In a changing modern society, what should be the relation between the inner and outer life, between the world of the intellect and the world of business? Can they ever, as Forster urges, "only connect"?, Country homes, Crossley, Steven.|Narrator, CtWfDGIengrdaCtWfDGI, DLCDLCFFL, DLCengDLCBAKERBTCTAYDXCPUKMEUMOCLCO, Digital content provided by hoopla., Domestic fiction., Downloadable audio books., Downloadable audio file., Downloadable audio., Downloadable audiobook., Downloadable streaming., England, F FORST, FRIENDS-1- -11-13-2017 9:17, FRIENDS-2- -09-13-2017 11:35, Forster, E.

To illuminate these changing times, Forster throws together three vastly dissimilar classes of people: the Schlegels -- Helen and Margaret -- educated, compassionate and independently wealthy; the Wilcoxes -- nouveau riche Empire builders; and Leonard Bast, an ambitious but struggling bank clerk.
