Forster Margaret Schlegel engaged to the much older widowed Henry Wilcox meets her intended the morning after accepting his proposal and realizes that he is a man who has lived without introspection or true self knowledge As she contemplates the state of Wilcox's soul her remedy for what ails him has become one of the most oft uoted passages in literature Only connect That was the whole of her sermon Only connect the prose and the passion and both will be exalted and human love will be seen at its height Live in fragments no longer Like all of Forster's work Howards End concerns itself with class nationality economic status and how each of these affects personal relationships It follows the intertwined fortunes of the Schlegel sisters Margaret and Helen. The title refers to a British country home not a mansion like a Downton Abbey but a small comfortable home with charm Although it seems that the story is set at about the same time as Downton Abbey The story revolves around two sisters who on separate visits fall in love with the home and in a very round about way end up living in it The main there of the book is British class structure The two sisters are liberal using modern terminology They attend meetings of progressive women s groups where one of them gives a presentation and shocks her audience by arguing that such groups need to help the poor not by giving them free libraries museums and concerts but by giving them money A kind of introduction by Lionel Trilling on the back cover tells us that Howard s End is about England s fate It is a story of the class warthe plot is about the rights of property about a destroyed will and testament and rightful and wrongful heirs It asks the uestion who shall inherit England Both sisters are aging their parents have died and they are heading into spinsterhood However the older one marries and she marries the owner of Howards End who is a Darwinist His attitude to be concise is I m paraphrasing there will always be poor nothing we can do they are not like us if you give them money they ll just blow it because they re re too stupid to know what to do with it And this is a uote The poor are poor and one s sorry for them but there it is As civilization moves forward the shoe is bound to pinch in places and it s absurd to think that anyone is responsible personally The sisters are not wealthy but they are comfortable from an inheritance and they hang out in upper class society So this is a second theme the sisters have an inherent cultured grace that comes from being part of the aristocracy the instinctive wisdom that the past can alone bestow had descended upon her that wisdom to which we give the clumsy name of aristocracy A married struggling poor young man that the sisters take under their wing is trying to improve himself and become cultured by reading But he eventually realizes that he could never follow them not if he read for ten hours a day Some are born cultured the rest had better go in for whatever comes easy We stand upon money as upon islands It is so firm beneath our feet that we forget its very existence money there s no nourishment in it You pass it to the lower classes and they pass it back to you and this you call social intercourse or mutual endeavor when it s mutual priggishness There s not a lot of plot other than that of the older sister coming around to marry the wealthy older man and after they are married she struggles to get his family to accept her And both sisters get involved with helping the poor young man but the road to hell The younger sister gets involved with him and a person ends up getting killed manslaughter Another theme of the book or appropriately motto is only connect The sisters are good at it the wealthy aristocrat is a disaster There is good writing Some passages I likedOn the poor young man looking ill at ease in his best clothes She wondered whether it paid to give up the glory of the animal for a tail coast and a couple of ideas The church itself stood in the village once But there it attracted so many worshippers that the devil in a pet snatched it from its foundations and poised it on an inconvenient knoll three uarters of a mile away Their interview was short and absurd They had nothing in common but the English language and tried by its help to express what neither of them

Howards End Free download Æ 5 E.M. Forster É 5 Read Read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free É E.M. Forster Em that will take years to resolve Forster's 1910 novel begins as a collection of seemingly unrelated events Helen's impulsive engagement to Paul Wilcox; a chance meeting between the Schlegel sisters and an impoverished clerk named Leonard Bast at a concert; a casual conversation between the sisters and Henry Wilcox in London one night But as it moves along these disparate threads gradually knit into a tightly woven fabric of tragic misunderstandings impulsive actions and irreparable conseuences and eventually connection Though set in the early years of the 20th century Howards End seems even suited to our own fragmented era of e mails and anger For readers living in such an age the exhortation to only connect resonates ever profoundly Alix Wilbe. This novel from 1910 has a lovely Shakespearean flavor of good intentions leading to unintended conseuences Urgent letters between sisters kicks off its engaging plot about the collision between two very different families The younger sister Helen Schlegel visiting the rural Howard s End estate of the conservative wealthy Wilcox family writes to Margaret that she is love with and wants to marry one of their sons Paul which grew out of a single impulsive kiss Margaret urges her aunt to travel there to make sure the Wilcoxes are their kind of people By the time she arrives Helen has already fallen out with Paul who is headed for Nigeria to manage the family s rubber plantation Later when the Wilcoxes move near the Schlegels in London and Margaret tries to make amends by reaching out to the mother Ruth Wilcox I loved experiencing how their brief friendship blossomed over discussions of the meaning of a home and the value she places in the family homestead of Howard s End which her husband Henry considers only in light of its real estate value Early in the plot Ruth dies and the discovery by Henry of a handwritten beueathment of the estate to Margaret leads to the Wilcox family deciding to ignore the reuest Already we see how Helen s impulse toward romance with Paul has the unintended conseuence of a special friendship of Margaret with Ruth and a hidden act of generosity It has also brought Margaret into contact with the widower Henry and a surprising romance between opposites she an early feminist who admires literature and arts and supports programs for the poor and he a pragmatic industrialist who is a true believer in the genetic superiority of his class The other unintended conseuence comes when Helen mistakenly takes the umbrella of Leonard Bast after a theater performance When he drops by to retrieve it the sisters kindly draw him out and find they admire his ambitions to imbibe literature and work his way up in class from his lowly position as a bank clerk His dreamy account of tuning into nature by tramps in the woods a la Ruskin makes them admire him than bumbling life probably deserves Margaret presses Henry for advice to help him better his circumstances which turns out to be disastrous for Leonard and his wife when they follow through with his recommendation This fate turns Helen even against the Wilcoxes and makes for a serious wedge in her relationship with Margaret There is tragedy in the tale but all key characters make a satisfactory transformation toward becoming better empathetic human beings despite the boundaries of class I liked this even better than Passage to India I absolutely loved Margaret s outlook and continual efforts to build bridges Her charm for me euals that of Woolf s indomitable Mrs Dalloway Immediately after the delightful read by LibriVox audiobook I had the great pleasure of experiencing Emma Thompson nail the role in the sumptious Merchant Ivory production Helena Bonham Carter rendered a great adaptation for the flighty idealistic Helen
