A Passage to India
London: Edward Arnold, 1924.

“A Passage to India… can sustain many readings, so intricate is its orchestration. It is only one of a few novels of this century that is written-through, in the musical sense of composition.” – Harold Bloom, Novels and Novelists

 

SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, number 45 of only 200 copies large-paper copies signed by Forster.

 

“A Passage to India, an outcome of the two visits of Forster to the country in 1912-12 and 1920 respectively, is unanimously regarded as the culmination of the author’s literary achievement. The title of the novel has been taken from Walt Whitman’s famous poem, ‘Passage to India’” (Reena Mitra, E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India). It is not only a true classic in terms of artistry, but also acts as “a tale to the simple, a parable to the wise, and a direct revelation of reality to the man who has made it a part of his being” (Middleton Murry). The book can be regarded, therefore, as “not merely a piece of anti-colonial fiction but a modern classic as well… it pertains to the quest for enduring values in a disordered and divided world” (Mitra).
