Howards End

Howards End, (1921



This is the story of the Schlegel sisters: half German Edwardians living in London. They are intellectual and comfortably off, but more bohemian/Bloomsbury than the establishment. 

They encounter the wealthier and more conservative Wilcoxes and the struggling clerk Leonard Bast. Their altruistic attempts at social engineering are sometimes amusing but ultimately tragic.



Review by Glenn Sumi

Howards End is a chatty, witty, philosophical novel about the state of England in the years leading up to the first world war. There’s a sharp sense of place (Howards End, the estate, was modelled after Forster’s childhood home), and by focusing on three separate families, you certainly understand the social hierarchy of Edwardian England.

Edward Morgan Forster OM CH was an English fiction writer, essayist and librettist. Many of his novels examined class difference and hypocrisy, including A Room with a View, Howards End and A Passage to India. The last brought him his greatest success.
