Over de Auteur

Edward Morgan Forster was born on January 1, 1879, in London, England. He never knew his father, who died when Forster was an infant. Forster graduated from King's College, Cambridge, with B.A. degrees in classics (1900) and history (1901), as well as an M.A. (1910). In the mid-1940s he returned to toon meer Cambridge as a professor, living quietly there until his death in 1970. Forster was named to the Order of Companions of Honor to the Queen in 1953. Forster's writing was extensively influenced by the traveling he did in the earlier part of his life. After graduating from Cambridge, he lived in both Greece and Italy, and used the latter as the setting for the novels Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and A Room with a View (1908). The Longest Journey was published in 1907. Howard's End was modeled on the house he lived in with his mother during his childhood. During World War I, he worked as a Red Cross Volunteer in Alexandria, aiding in the search for missing soldiers; he later wrote about these experiences in the nonfiction works Alexandria: A History and Guide and Pharos and Pharillon. His two journeys to India, in 1912 and 1922, resulted in A Passage to India (1924), which many consider to be Forster's best work; this title earned the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Forster wrote only six novels, all prior to 1925 (although Maurice was not published until 1971, a year after Forster's death, probably because of its homosexual theme). For much of the rest of his life, he wrote literary criticism (Aspects of the Novel) and nonfiction, including biographies (Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson), histories, political pieces, and radio broadcasts. Howard's End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India have all been made into successful films. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

Mooi boek, maar te langdradig. Tot over de helft gelezen.

Op pg 155 leg ik dit boek terzijde.
Jammer, want hele stukken van het eerste deel vond ik prachtig. Bijvoorbeeld de passages waarin Ronny en Miss Quested hun huwelijk afstellen en dan toch door laten gaan, omdat ze door een samenloop van omstandigheden weer helemaal op elkaar afgestemd raken.
Misschien schrijft Forster beter over mensen die op hem lijken: intelligente, upperclass, blanke Engelsen. Immers, ook de typeringen van mr. Fielding, de rommelige, linksige schoolmeester, zijn goed.
Maar de hoofdpersoon is Aziz, een islamitische indiër. Forster heeft sympathie voor Aziz, en stelt hem voor als intelligent, sociaal en likable. Maar niettemin beschrijft hij hem steeds met arrogantie, met een hint van neerbuigende welwillendheid.
Op pg 155 heb ik er geen geduld meer mee.

Leuk kado via Early Reviewers van Hesperus! Mooi verzorgde uitgave. Lijvige boeken spreken meer aan dan kortverhalen, maar dit zijn pareltjes. Vooral het titelverhaal 'The obelisk' is erg genietbaar. Het schetst een vrij saai burgerlijk Engels echtpaar, dat bij nadere beschouwing niet zo voorspelbaar is als gedacht. Gelukkig voor hen..misschien?! Schijnheiligheid en het van alle tijden en plaatsen zijnde klasseonderscheid zijn de rode draad in de verhalenbundel. Een aangenaam én gepolijst tussendoortje!… (meer)
