  • "Margaret and Helen Schlegel are sisters from a well-educated European family. A series of events brings them into a relationship with the very English Wilcox family. Both families also come into contact with Leonard Bast and his wife, a couple near the lowest tier of the rigid class system. Leonard's desire for cultural and intellectual status attracts the attention of Helen. Margaret must reconcile her independent spirit with her desire for companionship and a comfortable place in Edwardian society. Her moral strength is eventually able to resolve the tangle of opposites."
  • "To illuminate the 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."
  • "Presents the portrait of a lost era and illuminates it with three vastly dissimilar classes of people."

  • "Howards End is a novel by E.M. Forster, first published in 1910, about social and familial relations in turn-of-the-century England. Howards End is considered by some to be Forster's masterpiece."@en
  • "Heralded as E.M. Forster's masterpiece, Howards End explores the social, economic, and philosophical forces at play in England during the early twentieth century. Written in 1910, the novel delves into the lives of three families, each living within divergent social classes'the wealthy and materialistic Wilcoxes; the literary and cultured Schlegel sisters; and the impoverished Bast family. Through dramatic twists and turns that tightly interweave the stories of these families, Forster perfectly captures the changing social landscape of turn-of-the-century England, and Howards End continues to be recognized as a literary classic. It has been successfully adapted for both television and film, including the 1992 Merchant Ivory film starring Helena Bonham Carter, Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave, and Emma Thompson.

  • "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. As critic Lionel Trilling once noted, the novel asks, "Who shall inherit England?" 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"?"@en
