Summary
"This new study by Mohammad Shaheen examines the way in which E.M. Forster presents a complex, cultural engagement of colonial Britain and colonised India in his works. Forster's experience in Egypt during the First World War had a profound impact on his life and writing, and Shaheen here offers a reassessment of that experience. He explores Forster's use of raw materials (including his journalistic writings, essays and letters) in his work and demonstrates how Forster's fiction can be read in the wider contexts of culture and imperialism, and particularly through the tens of Edward Said's views on 'resistance and opposition'."--Jacket
