NOTES

The works of English essayist, novelist and short story writer, E.M. Forster, rank in the sphere of such influential writers as James Joyce, William Faulkner and Virginia Woolf for their remarkable humanist views and emphasis on the conflicts of English social classes. Forster's own favorite of his works, "The Longest Journey" touches on themes of family, sexuality, preoccupation with material society, and the necessity of passion in life. This novel is considered to be the most autobiographical of Forster's works, and explores his most humanistic views through the life of Rickie Elliot, a young man whose upbringing and education reflects the author's own experiences. Rickie's journey from childhood, through school, the discovery of an unknown brother, and later marriage serves as an example to readers of all generations of the necessity for personal connections, and more importantly passion, in every person's life
