Description

The Penguin English Library Edition of Howards End by E. M. Forster

‘The poor cannot always reach those whom they want to love, and they can hardly ever escape from those whom they love no longer. We rich can’

‘Only connect.’ is the idea at the heart of this book, a heartbreaking and provocative tale of three families at the beginning of the twentieth century: the rich Wilcoxes, the gentle, idealistic Schlegels and the lower-middle class Basts. As the Schlegel sisters try desperately to help the Basts and educate the close-minded Wilcoxes, the families are drawn together in love, lies and death.

Frequently cited as E. M. Forster’s finest work, Howards End brilliantly explores class warfare, conflict and the English character.

The Penguin English Library – 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
