Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: E.M. Forster published his novel A Passage to India in 1924, after he visited India beforehand in 1912 and in 1921. The novel deals in large parts with the political occupation of India by the British army and the concluding relations between the English and the native population. It is also about the friendship between the two main characters, Cyril Fielding and Dr. Aziz, with all its obstacles. A Passage to India wants to describe the differences between the Eastern and Western culture and how they might find together. This seminar paper discusses the relevant parts of the structure of this novel, which help Forster to create the gap between the cultures and the struggle of them getting together. These structural means are the use of a tripartite structure, specific locations and motifs in the novel.

Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0 (A), Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary (USA: East Tennessee State University, Johnson City - College of English), course: E.M. Forster, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1 Introduction E.M. Forster’s last novel A Passage to India has been widely appreciated as his most brilliant, most successful, and most valuable work of art. It has received a high reputation as one of the greatest, but also “most puzzling,” (Allen, 934) modern masterpieces ever written. After its publication in 1924 “it was accorded instant recognition, as a fine novel and as a perceptive and sympathetic treatment of the problem of ‘Anglo-India’” (White, 641). In the novel Forster examines racial tensions between the British colonizers and the Indian people at the time of the British Raj and also the philosophical question about the nature of human relationships in general. Despite its great acclaim, it has also been highly criticized and its release gave rise to a political controversy about British imperialism because it was perceived as a clear offensive against the British imperialists. Some literary critics doubt the novel’s credibility since it allegedly depicts British officials behaving too cruelly and the relations between British and Indians as unrealistic (Macaulay, 188). Although most criticism focused on its political assumptions, and Forster himself intended to express his scepticism about British imperialism in India and its destroying impact on human personal relationships, it was not predominantly intended to be a political novel. However, “as a political novel it has had a notable success” (Rutherford, 2). Forster’s central purpose is the same as in his preceding novel Howard’s End; he is concentrated on the issue of ‘connection,’ as well as on the desire to overcome gaps of social and racial segregation, and to unify the different races of the East and the West encountering on Indian territory (White, 644). Since “personal relationships were for Forster a fundamental value... from [which] he deduced the general need for tolerance, good temper, and sympathy” (Rutherford, 6); he maintained the basic assumptions of G.E. Moore’s liberal-humanitarian philosophy about the good human character and its longing for personal connection. In A Passage to India, especially in the depiction of the friendship between Dr. Aziz and Dr. Fielding, the longing for connection is not enough to resist racial tensions and misunderstandings. Consequently, their connection is destined to fail at the end of the novel. As a result, A Passage to India also deals with the question “whether or not it is possible to be friends with an Englishman” (Forster, 10), and with “colonization as frustrating any chance of friendship between the English and the Indians under the coloniser/colonised status quo” (Baker, 68-69) because it completely prevents the establishment of personal relationships under circumstances of occupation and suppression. In the following discussion the relationship between the British conquerors and the Indians at the time of the British Raj will be analyzed. The relationship of the main characters Dr. Aziz and Dr. Fielding, their attempted friendship, and the cause of its failure will be the focal point of analysis. Finally, Forster’s assumption about human relationships under certain conditions, based on the relationship between Dr. Aziz and Mr. Fielding, will be deduced.

Book Summary:

An essential companion to A Passage to India, a collection of the author’s own letters that read like “a close personal friend has shared his impressions” (Kirkus Reviews). In 1912, a young E. M. Forster traveled to India to serve as a secretary to the Maharajah of Dewas, a small Indian state. He was elevated to the rank of a minor noble, and eventually given the state’s highest honor, the Tukoji Rao III gold medal. This brief episode in Forster’s life became the basis for his masterwork, A Passage to India. In the letters included in The Hill of Devi, he shares his personal journey of discovering his beloved India for the first time. Forster paints a vivid, intimate picture of Dewas State—a strange, bewildering, and enchanting slice of pre-independence India. In this collection, Forster shares insight into the lives of Indian royalty and accounts of the stark contrast between their excesses and the poverty he encounters. From letters that set the scene for Forster’s lifelong friendship with the Maharaja, to an essay on the Maharaja himself and Forster’s experiences as the Maharaja’s personal secretary, The Hill of Devi is a fascinating chronicle of the author’s experience in the land he called “the oddest corner of the world outside Alice in Wonderland.”

Book Summary:

As a five-year-old, George Alagiah emigrated with his family to Ghana - the first African country to attain independence from the British Empire. A PASSAGE TO AFRICA is Alagiah's shattering catalogue of atrocities crafted into a portrait of Africa that is infused with hope, insight and outrage. In vivid and evocative prose and with a fine eye for detail Alagiah's viewpoint is spiked with the freshness of the young George on his arrival in Ghana, the wonder with which he recounts his first impressions of Africa and the affection with which he dresses his stories of his early family life. A sense of possibility lingers, even though the book is full of uncomfortable truths. It is a book neatly balanced on his integrity and sense of obligation in his role as a writer and reporter. The shock of recognition is always there, but it is the personal element that gives A PASSAGE TO AFRICA its originality. Africa becomes not only a group of nations or a vast continent, but an epic of individual pride and suffering.

Book Summary:

The Great Gatsby (1925) is a novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Published at the height of Fitzgerald’s career as a leading writer of American fiction, The Great Gatsby was reviewed poorly by contemporary critics, but has since been recognized as a groundbreaking work for its vision of American decadence and decay. Adapted into several influential films and adored by generations of readers and writers, The Great Gatsby is not only Fitzgerald’s crowning achievement, but one of the finest novels ever written. Nick Carraway is a young veteran and Yale graduate who moves to New York in search of work. He rents a bungalow on Long Island next door to the extravagant mansion of Jay Gatsby, a magnanimous millionaire with a mysterious past. There, he reconnects with his distant cousin Daisy and her husband Tom Buchanan, a flagrant philanderer who brings Nick to the city in order to spend time with Myrtle, his impoverished mistress. Soon, he receives an invitation to a party at the Gatsby mansion, where he gets terribly drunk and meets his neighbor, who swears they served together in the Great War. As time goes by, the two begin a tenuous friendship bolstered by stories of the war and a mutual fondness for alcohol. When Nick discovers that Gatsby and Daisy have a complicated history with one another, he starts to question not only the nature of his neighbor’s kindness, but his own desire to make it big in New York. The Great Gatsby is a tragic tale of ambition and romance set in the Roaring Twenties, a decade born from war and lost to economic disaster. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this new edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is a classic work of American literature reimagined for modern readers.

One of the great observers of Australian life, Henry Lawson looms large in our national psyche. Yet at his best Lawson transcends the very bush, the very outback, the very up-country, the very pub or selector's hut he conveys with such brevity and acuity: he make specific places universal. Henry Lawson is too often regarded as a legend rather than a writer to be enjoyed. In this selection Lawson is revealed as an author whose delightful, humorous, wry and moving short stories continue to delight generations of readers. This is the essential Lawson collection - the classic of Australian classics. 'Lawson's sketches are beyond praise.'Joseph Conrad 'Lawson gets more feelings, observation and atmosphere into a page than does Hemingway.'Edward Garnett

Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, Ruhr-University of Bochum (Englisches Seminar), course: Heritage Films, language: English, abstract: The novel A Passage to India written by Edward Morgan Forster was published in 1924 and has given rise to several discussions. Sixty Years later David Lean made a film based on Forster’s novel, which was representative of a whole range of films of this decade dealing with the construction of Englishness and trying to revive the imperial or Edwardian past in a nostalgic and Anglo-centric manner (Nischik 301). The film is part of the so-called heritage industry thriving in Thatcher Britain and is supported by political orders and acts like the National Heritage Act of 1980 and 1983. In that time the political importance of Britain decreased and there were challenges to the national sovereignty and unity by the European integration process as well as disintegrative developments in Northern Ireland. Therefore the construction of traditional Englishness and of imperial dominance in the cultural format of quality films became one of Britain’s most important export article (Nischik 302). But those national identities such as ‘Englishness’ are cultural constructions and symbolic self-representations which come to equate social facts. In the context of social and political integration, literary texts play an important and privileged role and complement the affirmative appeal of popular films produced for the cinema (Nischik 303). The novel A Passage to India avoids simplistic idealizations of Anglo-Indian relations and Englishness when constructing it and wants its readers to confront the truths about their inner selves and their relation to the world (Yarrow 1). Forster describes different worldviews in his novel without privileging one above another and lets his characters search for paths towards individual truths and an opening up of the deeper corners of consciousness (Yarrow 1). The Marabar Caves play an important role in the description of different worldviews and the individual truth which the characters try to find in the novel. They “represent an area in which concentration can take place. A cavity. They were something to focus everything up: they were to engender an event like an egg” (Messenger 62). Therefore the Marabar Caves in A Passage to India can be seen as the heart of the novel, both literarily, structurally and symbolically (Messenger 62).

Book Summary:

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,5, University of Frankfurt (Main), language: English, abstract: Whoever tries to analyse Edward Morgan Forster's enigmatic novel “A Passage to India” has to deal with difficulties that complicate every possible interpretation: The most important events of the narrative are actually untold. Justifying these gaps merely with Forster's “dislike of the prominence of a plot in a novel” seems to be too easy, it rather seems that an analysis of these blank spaces opens up new possibilities for understanding the novel as a whole. Taking into account the importance of the gaps in the narrative, this essay examines how the author creates a world of misunderstanding by the use of shifting perspectives that first seem to produce meaning, but eventually merely emphasize that reality is always a matter of perception. A main focus of the essay are the mysterious events at the Marabar Caves that raise political tensions between the colonizer and the colonized. Taking into account that India is a place where not only race determines the hierarchy, but also gender, the role of Indian women in “A Passage to India” will be analysed as well. The conclusion summarises the important aspects and attempts to give an outlook on further questions that could be raised.

Book Summary:

The book is an attempt to analyze the construction of India by five authors in their seminal works of literature. The first of the five novels is A Passage to India by E. M. Forster published in 1924. Chronologically, it is followed by Midnight’s Children, the “Booker of Bookers” for the year 1993, published in 1981 by Salman Rushdie. The third one is The Great Indian Novel , modeled on the Great Indian Epic, The Mahabharata, published in 1989 by Shashi Tharoor. The fourth one belongs to the canon of Regional Literature and is composed by Kamleshwar. The original title is Kitne Pakistan published in 2000 and the English translation Partitions came in 2006. The book makes use of the text in Hindi for reference and quoting. There are two reasons for this: first, language is not merely a medium between the text and the reader, but also something that carries a ‘voice’. The use of Hindi by Kamleshwar has a bearing on the kind of di scourse bei ng generated, as di scussed l ater. Secondl y, language acts in a cultural context and hence the impact that it carries is properly highlighted only in the original language in which the work has been composed. A translated work is, at times, not able to convey the spirit behind the words. The quotes from the text have been given in Roman script. The last one taken is Kiran Desai’s The Inheritance of Loss, published in 2006 and the winner of the “Man Booker Prize” in the same year.

Book Summary:

An impulsive English widow’s trip to Italy stirs up trouble for her uptight in-laws in this classic novel by the author of A Passage to India. Leaving dreary England behind, thirty-three-year-old widow Lilia Herriton travels to exotic Italy where she is soon engaged to a handsome, younger Italian man. Her late husband’s family is not pleased, and they try to bring Lilia home—but fail. After Lilia gives birth to a son, her in-laws once again intercede. Philip Herriton, his sister Harriet, and their friend Caroline are determined not to let the child grow up in such uncivilized surroundings. But as cultures clash in this tragicomedy of manners, their mission takes an unexpected turn or two . . . Originally published in 1905, Where Angels Fear to Tread was E. M. Forster’s first novel. It has been adapted for radio and the opera, and as a 1991 film starring Helen Mirren, Helena Bonham Carter, and Judy Davis. Forster went on to receive great acclaim for novels such as A Room with a View, Howard’s End, and A Passage to India. “A whole and mature work dominated by a fresh and commanding intelligence.” —Lionel Trilling, leading literary critic and essayist

Book Summary:

The Handbook systematically charts the trajectory of the English novel from its emergence as the foremost literary genre in the early twentieth century to its early twenty-first century status of eccentric eminence in new media environments. Systematic chapters address ̒The English Novel as a Distinctly Modern Genreʼ, ̒The Novel in the Economy’, ̒Genres’, ̒Gender’ (performativity, masculinities, feminism, queer), and ̒The Burden of Representationʼ (class and ethnicity). Extended contextualized close readings of more than twenty key texts from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (1899) to Tom McCarthy’s Satin Island (2015) supplement the systematic approach and encourage future research by providing overviews of reception and theoretical perspectives.
