E.M. Forster, (full name Edward Morgan Forster), (born January 1, 1879, London, England—died June 7, 1970, Coventry, Warwickshire) was a British novelist, writer, and social and artistic pundit. His acclaim lays generally on his books Howards End (1910) and A Passage to India (1924) and on a huge series of analysis writing pieces.
Forster additionally went twice to India in 1912 and 1921; the excursions helped him start and finish 'A Passage to India (1924)', which has since been perused as a significant early report of post-expansionism.
The novel is set against the scenery of the British Raj and the Indian independence movement during the 1920s. It was chosen as one of the 100 extraordinary works of twentieth-century English writing by the Modern Library and won the 1924 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction.
The story rotates around four characters: Dr. Aziz, his British companion Mr. Cyril Fielding, Mrs. Moore, and Miss Adela Quested. During an excursion to the imaginary Marabar Caves (demonstrated on the Barabar Caves of Bihar), Adela thinks she gets herself alone with Dr. Aziz in one of the caverns (when in actuality he is in a completely extraordinary cavern), and in this manner freezes and escapes; it is expected that Dr. Aziz has endeavored to ambush her. Aziz's preliminary, and its run-up and repercussions, heat to the point of boiling the normal racial strains and biases among Indians and the British who rule India.
