First published in 1910, Howards End is the novel that earned E. M. Forster recognition as a major writer.
At its heart lie two familiesâthe wealthy and business-minded Wilcoxes and the cultured and idealistic Schlegels. When the beautiful and independent Helen Schlegel begins an impetuous affair with the ardent Paul Wilcox, a series of events is sparkedâsome very funny, some very tragicâthat results in a dispute over who will inherit Howards End, the Wilcoxes' charming country home.
As much about the clash between individual wills as the clash between the sexes and the classes, Howards End is a novel whose central tenet, Only connect, remains a powerful prescription for modern life.
