    Written in 1905, this was Forster s first novel It is a comedy of manners, and does show signs of his great talent Out of his four best known novels though, this seems by far the weakest I personally think it would have worked better as a novella or even a short story later he did write very good short story collections.The balance of this short novel feels wrong The early descriptions of upper class characters enmeshed in their own culture are really rather dull, and would have benefited f Written...

    Some, but not all writers, can suffer with teething troubles on that first novel, E M Forster s 1905 Where Angels Fear to Tread is a prime example It s a valiant effort for a writer in his early days before what would follow, and I can t help but compare this to the delightful novel he wrote only three years later, A Room with a View , which pleasantly surprised me as to just how good it was This, just wasn t in the same league Our Mr Forster pretty much corners the literary market on E Some, but not all writers, can suffer with teething troubles on that first novel, E M Forster s 1905 Where Angels Fear to Tread is a prime example It s a valiant effort for a writer in his early days before what would follow, and I can t help but compare this to the delightful novel he wrote only three years later, A Room with a View , which pleasantly surprised me as to just how good it was This, just wasn t in the same league Our Mr Forster pretty much corners the literary market on English tourists being overwhelmed by the dream of another country, and what happens when that dream clashes against reality Here, that clash ain t pretty What it is, however, is sharp witted, emotional, and sometimes uncomfortable, about what it means to be a tourist, and what it ...

    I m always amused at the distain the haughty English aristocrat feels toward the average Italian and their incomprehensible ways and their attitude toward life I ve noticed it in several works of English literature and, not being English myself, I don t know if it really exists I hope it is true, I won t have to change my perception of the 19th and early 20th century English I like them that way, their style, their arrogance, if that s the right word, their belief that their way is the right I m always amused at the distain the haughty English aristocrat feels toward the average Italian and their incomprehensible ways and their attitude toward life I ve notice...

    I only realized half way through that E M Forster was 26 when he wrote this which is his first If I d known that I wouldn t have read it, I have a violent prejudice against novelists under 30 It s too early to start In other art forms it s essential to be under 30 the Beatles were in their mid 20s when they did Sgt Pepper, Brian Wilson was 23 and 24 when he created Pet Sounds and Smile, Picasso was churning out brilliant realist works in his mid teens, and not to mention Mozart s unpleasant I only realized half way through that E M Forster was 26 when he wrote this which is his first If I d known that I wouldn t have read it, I have a violent prejudice against novelists under 30 It s too early to start In other art forms it s essential to be under 30 the Beatles were in their mid 20s when they did Sgt Pepper, Brian Wilson was 23 and 24 when he created Pet Sounds and Smile, Picasso was churning out brilliant realist works in his mid teens, and not to mention Mozart s unpleasant precocity, sitting up in his pram and scribbling oratorios onto every available surface but the art of the novel lays bare the author s mind too eloquently, it s farintimate and therefore cruelly revealing than music or painting, your under 30 crassness and callowness will be exposed, you re caught in the fierc...

    This is my favorite by E.M Forster I gave A Room with a View three stars and A Passage to India four, but this is even better than that A love story that I love, and it is extremely short I don t usually enjoy short novels It is a classic worth being called a classic Forster captures different sorts of people and their respective ways of being We have Harriet who is logical and straight thinking and Miss Caroline Abbott who wavers but recognizes the value of passion..as well as its dange This is my favorite by E.M Forster I gave A Room with a View three stars and A Passage to India four, but this is even better than that A love story that I love, and it is extremely short I don t usually enjoy short novels It is a classic worth being called a classic For...

    Forester s do or die question is Wilt thou love Having read four of his novels all very different in their plot the underlying theme seems consistent in all Is this a drawback or monotonous Not to me as it happens to be something I often wonder myself, although my pondering tends to run along the why and how lines Why and or how can some people so repeatedly and insistently refuse to love Or maybe, continue to think that being good is the same thing when it is not.I needed to let a l Forester s do or die question is Wilt thou love Having read four of his novels all very different in their plot the underlying theme seems consistent in all Is this a drawback or monotonous Not to me as it happens to be something I often wonder myself, although my pondering tends to run along the why and how lines Why and or how can some people so repeatedly and insistently refuse to love Or maybe, continue to think that being good is the same thing when it is not.I needed to let a little time pass before writing this review on Where Angels Fear to Tread to allow my own emotions to cool Because although the novel begins conventionally enough, for me at least, it ends on a piercingly poignant note, hauntingly so Romance being one of my least favorite genres and the word sweet one which usually makes ...
