A Comparative Study of E.M. Forster's Maurice

Ruby Roy (Author)

The novel is an essence a BILDUNGSROMAN that traces the emotional development of the eponymous hero as he deals with the repercussions of being homosexual in Edwardian England. Although written by E.M. Forster during 1913-19 14, he refused to publish the book during his lifetime because of the negative legal and moralistic attitudes towards homosexuality that permeated England during the advent of the century .While bravery is not necessarily reflected in Forster\'s [perfectly reasonable] decision to withhold publishing the text during his lifetime, it is reflected in the novel\'s content to envision a world, fictional or realistic, in which two men could could fall in love and remain in it was beyond the scope of most modernist writers. This book attempts to comprehensively and objectively study, survey, evaluate thematic patterns in Maurice in comparison without her novels of E.M. Forster. Thus a deliberate design emerges which proves some of Forster\'s viewpoints regarding love, life, and role of artistsabout the author, Ruby Roy did her BA.
