Summary
"E. M. Forster, whose novels, including Howards End, A Room with a View, and A Passage to India, probe the values of the English middle class, is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most distinguished authors. He was also a respected literary critic. The Creator as Critic contains more than 40 of Forster's hitherto-unpublished essays, lectures, and memoirs, spanning the period 1898 to 1960. They reflect his views on a wide range of authors: Poggio, Cornaro, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Defoe, Richardson, Fielding, Smollett, Sterne, Scott, Coleridge, Austen, Ruskin, Tolstoy, Meredith, Arnold, Butler, Pater, Hardy, James, Wilde, Shaw, Conrod, Housman, Cavafy, Kipling, Wells, Proust, Beerbohm, Joyce, Woolf, Keynes, Sassoon, Eliot, Auden, and others." "The Creator as Critic presents the original texts of some 30 broadcasts made by Forster for the BBC during the years 1928 to 1959. These radio talks, collected for the first time in this volume, offer insight into his attitude toward writers such as Swift, Crabbe, Voltaire, Dostoyevsky, Edward Carpenter, Ethel Smyth, Lowes Dickinson, Strachey, Munshi Premehand, Lawrence, Graves, Dos Passos, Capek, Wescott, Steinbeck, Orwell, and many others. They are the thoughtful and thought-provoking products of Forster's active engagement with the literary, political, and social events of his time."--BOOK JACKET
