Nelle pagine di Casa Howard si intrecciano le vicende di tre famiglie: i Wilcox, borghesi arricchiti e arroganti, disumanizzati dal potere economico; le sorelle Schlegel, raffinate, colte, idealiste; infine i coniugi Bast, lei una donna volgare, lui un povero impiegatuccio, sull'orlo della rovina.

And it makes you think about life, love, wealth, social inequality, family, art, relations, intimacy, connection!, without feeling heavy or pedagogical. And it makes you love the two heroines so much, that after you finish, you want to know more about what happened to them... The story might not be the most interesting thing--it is not meant to be, it is not a detective or adventure or suspense crime novel. If you read a book for original storylines, this might not be what you want. If you read a book to get lost in the lives of other people and away from your own, this is definitely what you want!(less)

Тибби, который просто сочетание словаря с желудком. Живые и, увы, настоящие там -- Чарльз, ...more

Edward Morgan Forster, generally published as E.M. Forster, was an novelist, essayist, and short story writer. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. His humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: "Only connect".
