Forster's A Passage to India

G.K. Das (Editor) Christel R. Devadawson (Editor)
Synopsis How well has A Passage to India worn? This critical anthology responds by putting together postcolonial, feminist, liberal and several other voices of today which talk to each other and talk across each other to the text. The volume interrogates afresh the major characters of the text, polarities between Hinduism and Islam, myths and possibilities of cross-cultural friendships, muddle and mystery of the rape, cultural paradigms of the colony and the empire, and other key issues. Eighty years down the road, it attempts a searching study of this canonical text.
