Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Würzburg, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: E.M. Forster’s novel A Passage to India was published in 1924 and based on two personal visits of Forster’s to India in 1912 and a few years later after World War I in 1921. During his visits to India, Forster travelled a great deal and met many Indians, among them Syed Ross Masood, who was to become an intimate friend and also the basis for the character of the young Indian doctor Aziz in his novel. The friendship between them is portrayed by Forster in the friendship between Aziz and Mr Fielding, the English schoolmaster. In this way, Forster was able to experience both sides, maintaining a cross-cultural relationship and deriving from this completely new knowledge and feelings, but also the negative side with all the hardships of cultural and political misunderstandings. Forster gives a very vivid description of exactly these difficulties in his novel, and shows, without sparing the British in any one point, the state of British Rule in India at the time of his second visit. He attempts to criticise the unj ust superior behaviour of the British. Due to this narrative technique, the reader is immediately apt to sympathize with the ruled race, badly and impolitely treated by the English officials (such as Callendar, Turton, Heaslop). In his novel, the author attempts to answer a question even he had had to pose himself: Is it possible for an Englishman and an Indian to be friends? This question appears in the book on one of the first pages during a discussion of Aziz’s Indian friends, but the answer is left open for the time being. As already mentioned, the overall theme of the novel is that of relationships, friendship, and “the yearning for communication and connection” 1 which needs must lead to a “catastrophic failure” 2 of those attempted relationships due to a political and cultural world without an overall understanding for such mixed relationships or individuality. The novel is divided up into three main parts: Mosque, Temple and Caves. This structure has given much room for different interpretations, one of such which is the structure of thesis, antithesis and synthesis.

The greatness of E.M. Forster's fifth and last novel, A Passage to India, rests in part on its agility. It is at once political tract, personal memoir, philosophical meditation, comedy of manners, mystery, even ghost story. It accommodates the workings of reason and the supernatural, the sensibilities of West and East, the experiences of conqueror and subject. It is a colonial as well as a postcolonial text, a participant in both the realist and modernist traditions. In her ample, well-furnished response to Forster's masterpiece, Judith Scherer Herz combines a political and historical reading with one focusing on narrative technique. This unusual approach allows for a rich accounting of the multitude of forces at work in the novel, enabling her to determine as precisely as possible the events, beliefs, values, and cultural assumptions that inform it. The reasons for the British presence in India, the extent of their power over the Indians, the many and complex reactions of the Indians to that power, the role and reliability of Forster's narrator as arbiter and truthteller, the extent to which that narrator gives voice to Forster's personal experience of India - all are brought to light in Herz's analysis. This assessment of the book's more tangible elements is complemented by Herz's recognition of its intangible elements, its ghosts, those presences that exist within its imaginative world but not necessarily on the page. The novel's "ghost story," Herz writes, "occurs in the spaces of the primary text; in dreams, memories, old photographs, and flashes of intuition that do not quite resolve." While some critics have dealt with the supernatural in Forster's work, Herz is the first to use the idea of the ghost story to come to grips with the essential elusiveness and secrecy of A Passage to India. Herz's willingness to explore the least chartered, least expressible territory of the novel, coupled with her informed criticism of the primary text, sets her work apart from other Forster studies to date.

It is 1831, riots and rebellions are widespread . . . In England, the new government is facing protests against the attempts of the Tory-dominated House of Lords to thwart the passing of the Reform Bill. In India, relations are strained between the presidency of Madras and some of the neighbouring princely states. Having taken command of the action in Bristol to restore order after one of the bloodiest and most destructive riots in the nation's history, Lieutenant-Colonel Matthew Hervey is out of favour with the new government. But then his old friend, Sir Eyre Somervile, offers him a lifeline. Somervile has persuaded the Court of Directors of the East India Company to approve an increase in the Madras military establishment. Hervey and the 6th Light Dragoons are sent to the princely state of Coorg. The Rajah is in revolt against the East India Company’s terms and Hervey’s regiment is called upon to crush the rebellion. With the stakes raised by an unexpected visitation from his past, for Hervey the question is whether he and his men will get out of this brutal war unscathed?
