E. M Forster is one of the most highly regarded and enduringly popular writers of the 20th Century, a master of the social manners novel and the exploration of class differences that define much of mid and early 20th Century English literature. Featuring complex and strong female characters forging their own path, as well as reaching a new height of (modern-seeming and always agreeable in repeated readings) literary fiction and novels touching on social etiquette, Forster's novels may also be considered among the early 20th Century works with feminist themes and moving humanist messages.

Edward Morgan Forster was born in London in 1879. His great-aunt Marianne Thornton (daughter of the abolitionist Henry Thornton) died in 1887 and left him a considerable sum of money, which was a good support to him in becoming a writer. While at King's College, Cambridge between 1897 and 1901, he was a member of a philosophical discussion society known as the Apostles, and many of its members went on to constitute the Bloomsbury Group. A novelist, short story writer, essayist, and librettist, much of Forster's work examined class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th Century British society, his most popular novels including A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910), and A Passage to India (1924). The latter decades of his life were spent quietly or undertaking public readings and sightseeing, and he died at the age of 91 in Coventry in 1970.
