Additional Information

Considered by many to be Forster's masterpiece, "Howards End" was ranked 38th in the Modern Library listing of the best English novels of the 20th century. Interplaying characters from three very different families, Forster beautifully defines the conditions of class, culture, gender roles and politics that were prevalent in the years before World War I, sensitively exploring themes of connection, the seen and the unseen, and the essential proportion of inner and outer life.

I loved this and have loved the other Forster I have read. It is a somewhat gentle, but interesting story, wherein the action unfolds slowly, but in an interesting manner.
This is a lovely book, a great read. This edition, however, is poorly done. There are a number of typographical errors (some of which are quite distracting, as I dislike finding erroneous punctuation marks inserted randomly) and the pages are not set well. The margins were badly formulated, leaving less than a 1/4" for the outer edges, which is both aesthetically unpleasing and impractical, as it makes taking marginal notes an impossibility. The paper quality is fine, but the book looks cheap nonetheless. I occasionally buy Dover Thrift editions of classics, as they are very cheap and fairly reliable, but I wanted a higher quality edition of this novel. I was wrong: the Dover Thrift edition might actually be about the same quality as this one, perhaps even better, and it is a much better buy.
Howards End has always been among my top 100 favorite novels (that may not sound impressive, but I do read a LOT, so it actually is). Forster had a compelling well of sculpting a narrative so that it pulls you in while also keeping you ever conscious of the beauty of the writing. His characters have enough life to them that you can visualize them well while reading and you feel like you've come to know them quite companionably by the end of the book. Probably my favorite aspect of Howards End is the idiosyncrasies of the sisters, which makes them more human and relatable for me.
