E.M. Forster (Howard's End) and Virginia Woolf (Mrs. Dalloway): Bookends of the Early Modern Novel


They were friends whose styles were radically different. Forster is quite traditional and Woolf experimental. Yet both focused on the individual and domestic life rather than the grand social themes of the later 19th century. They critiqued each other’s work and helped shape the post-World War I literary scene in Britain. And they are still very readable, with Forster enjoying a new audience in films.


For the first class please read Howard’s End, Chapters 1–9.
