This seminar will be reading and discussing Howards End by E.M. Forster, ISBN9781619492882. Any format will use the same chapter numbers.

Howards End is regarded by many as E.M. Forster's masterpiece. Although it was written around 1910, before World War I, it is very modern in its concerns about class, religion, feminism, wealth, and status. The novel centers on three families who weave “a complicated tapestry of misunderstandings, careless impulses, and ultimately tragedy.” We will watch the film, Howards End, and compare it with the novel.
