  • "Een introverte, manke jongeman uit de betere kringen ontdekt dat hij een buitenechtelijke halfbroer heeft die alle eigenschappen bezit die hijzelf mist."
  • "The Longest Journey (1907) is a bildungsroman by E.M. Forster.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia."@en
  • "Bookish, sensitive, and given to wild enthusiasms, Rickie Elliot is virtually made for a life at Cambridge, where he can subsist on a regimen of biscuits and philosophical debate. But the love-smitten Rickie leaves his natural habitat to marry the devastatingly practical Agnes Pembroke, who brings with her, as a sort of dowry, a teaching position at the abominable Sawston School."
  • "Rickie Elliot, a sensitive and intelligent young man with an intense imagination and a certain amount of literary talent, sets out from Cambridge full of hopes to become a writer. But when his stories are not successful, he decides instead to marry the beautiful but shallow Agnes, agreeing to abandon his writing and become a schoolmaster."
  • "Rickie Elliott's inability to recognize reality leads him to inevitable tragedy."@en
  • "Rickie Elliot, sensitive and idealistic, misleads himself through his conventional desire for marriage and fatherhood. Falling for and marrying Agnes Pembroke, he journeys away from the philosophical ideals of his Cambridge youth."@en
  • "Tragedy of Rickie Elliott, who at two crucial junctures in his life mistakes the nature of reality. The marriage of Rickie Elliott and Agnes Pembroke is a mistake from the beginning, but what conducts it towards tragedy is Rickie's inability to distinguish between what is real and what is not real."
  • "This bildungsroman follows the lame Rickie Elliott from the tortures of public school, to Cambridge, to a career as a struggling writer, and then to a life as schoolmaster married to the beautiful but unappealing Agnes Pembroke. On a visit to his aunt, Rickie discovers that he has a half-brother, the healthy and 'pagan' Stephen Wonham -- and the ensuing complications caused by Agnes' interference bring the story to its tragic close."@en
  • "The Longest Journey (1907) follows the young Rickie Elliot's journey to maturity. Orphaned and lame as a child, Rickie was teased at boarding school and finds Cambridge to be a kind of paradise. He is not an intellectual, but is deeply affected by art and poetry, and is accepted within a philosophical circle of students. His new sense of belonging is challenged when he is visited by old friends from home."@en
  • "Rickie Elliot, the sensitive orphaned hero, escapes his stunted suburban life and goes to Cambridge, where for the first time in his life he finds sympathetic friends. He makes a disastrous marriage to the petty-minded scheming Agnes, but finds his life unexpectedly enriched by the sudden appearance of a long-lost half-brother -- only to meet a tragic end. Forster admitted that the character of Rickie represented himself."@en
  • "The Longest Journey (1907) is a bildungsroman (a "novel of formation", a genre that arose during the German Enlightenment, in which the author presents the psychological, moral and social shaping of the personality of a usually young protagonist.) by E.M. Forster. Rickie Elliot is a student at early 20th century Cambridge, a university that seems like paradise to him, amongst bright if cynical companions, when he receives a visit from two friends, an engaged young woman, Agnes Pembroke, and her older brother, Herbert. The Pembrokes are Rickie?s only friends from home. An orphan who."@en
