Cover Text'"You talk as if a god had made the Machine," cried the other. "I believe that you pray to it when you are unhappy. Men made it, do not forget that."'
E.M. Forster is best known for his exquisite novels, but these two affecting short stories brilliantly combine the fantastical with the allegorical. In 'The Machine Stops', humanity has isolated itself beneath the ground, enmeshed in automated comforts, and in 'The Celestial Omnibus' a young boy takes a trip his parents believe impossible.
This book contains The Machine Stops and A Celestial Omnibus.
SummaryFeatures two affecting short stories that combine the fantastical with the allegorical. This book includes "The Machine Stops" and "A Celestial Omnibus".

Author

Edward Morgan Forster (1897-1970), einer der bedeutendsten englischen Prosaisten des 20. Jahrhunderts und längst ein Klassiker der englischen Literatur, erlangte mit "Auf der Suche nach Indien", dem wohl berühmtesten Indien-Roman des 20. Jahrhunderts, Weltruhm. Zu seinem Werk gehören fünf weitere Romane, Erzählungen und Essays. Nach längeren Aufenthalten in Indien lebte er von 1927 bis zu seinem Tod in Cambridge.
