Maurice è forse il capolavoro di Forster. Certamente è il suo romanzo più intimo e commovente, uno squisito esercizio privato di scrittura della verità.
Sullo sfondo di una società vittoriana rigida ed esclusiva, scoppia tra Maurice e Clive, compagni di college, una passione complice e innominabile. Se per Clive la storia d’amore è destinata a seppellirsi nella «normalità», per Maurice è il calvario che conduce a una nuova vita. La tormentosa affermazione della diversità ha fatto di Maurice il libro più autentico e sofferto di Forster: scritto nel 1914, ma tenuto segreto per tutta la vita, autobiografico e ossessivamente rimaneggiato nel corso degli anni, è la commovente testimonianza cui lo scrittore ha affidato la rivelazione della propria omosessualità.

E.M. Forster ( Howards End , A Room With A View ) finished this gay-themed novel in 1914, and though he showed it to some close friends, he didn't publish it in his lifetime. It eventually came out after his death, in the early 1970s. What a gift to have a novel about same sex love written a cen
The second dream is more difficult to convey. Nothing happened. He scarcely saw a face, scarcely heard a voice say, “That is your friend,” and then it was over, having filled him with beauty and taught him tenderness. He could die for such a friend, he would allow such a friend to die for him; th Leggi tutto
"Begun 1913Finished 1914Dedicated to a Happier Year” Edward Morgan Forster (1879-1970) wrote Maurice (*) as a relatively young man, aged 34, at a time when old Europe was starting to fall apart. However, it was not published until 1971, a year after his death. Maurice is probably the first literary w Leggi tutto
what if we kissed in your ex-lover's boathouse....and we were both boys.... 😳😳 haha just kidding........unless.. .....?
listen that might be just my opinion but if a lgbt book from 1913 has a happy ending there is absolutely no excuse for gays dying in books in 2019
“I think you’re beautiful, the only beautiful person I’ve ever seen. I love your voice and everything to do with you, down to your clothes or the room you are sitting in. I adore you.” this book sent me all the way through it and I was genuinely moved by the tenderness.. the yearning... the way e Leggi tutto
Possibly my new favourite book of the year so far. I absolutely loved this one - beautiful, moving, such a powerful read.
Maurice is a book, among few others, where I’d like to not only share a select few quotes with you, but transcribe the whole story from start to finish. I’d also love to delve deep into the story behind the book, and its creator E. M. Forster. Maurice is “his story” in two senses of the term: firstl Leggi tutto
If Dorian Gray is the dramatic, scandal-creating gay classic, than Maurice is the snobbish yet emotionally moving gay classic. Written in 1913-14 but only published sixty years later, this is a book that is impressive - not because of its romance - but because of the character's personal journey
Perfect! There is probably nothing I can write that hasn't been written before about this work from one of our great English authors. It has no doubt been criticised, scrutinised, analysed, investigated, praised and acclaimed, I will just write about how the book made me feel. The style of English w Leggi tutto
