Howards End

by E.M. Forster


The story of a house and two sisters, Howards End is also a subtle meditation on national, sexual and social identities. Half German by birth and middle-class English by upbringing, Helen and Margaret Schlegel struggle to come to terms with the problems of their inheritance in Edwardian England.

“The crime of suicide lies rather in its disregard for the feelings of those whom we leave behind.”

E.M. Forster, Howards End
