Cover TextExploring issues of colonialism, faith and the limits of comprehension, E.M. Forster's A Passage to India is published as a Penguin Essential for the first time.
When Adela Quested and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, they quickly feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced 'Anglo-Indian' community. Determined to escape the parochial English enclave and explore the 'real India', they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz, a cultivated Indian Muslim. But a mysterious incident occurs while they are exploring the Marabar caves with Aziz, and the well-respected doctor soon finds himself at the centre of a scandal that rouses violent passions among both the British and their Indian subjects. A masterly portrait of a society in the grip of imperialism, A Passage to India compellingly depicts the fate of individuals caught between the great political and cultural conflicts of the modern world.
'His great book ... masterly in its presence and its lucidity'
Anita Desai

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.
