His fame rests largely on his novels (1924) and on a large body of criticism.
Forster, in full Edward Morgan Forster, (born January 1, 1879, London, England—died June 7, 1970, Coventry, Warwickshire), British novelist, essayist, and social and literary critic.
At King’s College, Cambridge, he enjoyed a sense of liberation.
For the first time he was free to follow his own intellectual inclinations; and he gained a sense of the uniqueness of the individual, of the healthiness of moderate skepticism, and of the importance of Mediterranean civilization as a counterbalance to the more straitlaced attitudes of northern European countries.
On leaving Cambridge, Forster decided to devote his life to writing.
His first novels and short stories were redolent of an age that was shaking off the shackles of Victorianism.
While adopting certain themes (the importance of women in their own right, for example) from earlier English novelists such as George Meredith, he broke with the elaborations and intricacies favoured in the late 19th century and wrote in a freer, more colloquial style.
From the first his novels included a strong strain of social comment, based on acute observation of middle-class life.
