Description

E. M. Forster's exquisitely observed novel about the clash of cultures and the consequences of perception, set in colonial India

 

Among the greatest novels of the twentieth century and the basis for director David Lean&;s Academy Award&;winning film, A Passage to India unravels the growing racial tension between Indians, uneasy at best with colonial power, and the British, largely ignorant and dismissive of the society they're infiltrating. A sudden moment of confusion results in a devastating series of events that threatens to ruin a man's life, revealing just how deeply&;and swiftly&;prejudice has taken root.

display_descriptionThis award-winning novel about a conflict between a British woman and an Indian man amid the stirrings of rebellion against empire is "a revelation" (The New York Times). One of Time magazine's 100 best English language novels published since 1923, one of the Modern Library's 100 great works of twentieth-century English literature, and the winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize "By the time the great Edwardian novelist, in this last and best of his novels published in his lifetime, addressed himself to the British presence in India, his moral sense was more fully equipped than ever. Mindful of the imponderables of human conduct, alert to all the reciprocal misjudgments and the wearying false appraisals we make as a matter of course, he looked at empire and saw its weak foundations. Adela Quested is a British visitor to the Raj who is anxious to know 'the real India.' On a visit to the Malabar caves an assault of some kind does or does not happen to her, perhaps at the hands of Dr. Aziz, the solicitous Indian Muslim who has arranged the trip. Has she imagined things? Is he not what he seems? In his other great novel, Howards End, Forster directed us to 'only connect.' What he demonstrates here, in a story of the greatest and saddest subtleties-and comic subtleties, too-is how nearly impossible that is to do." -Time
