A Great Unrecorded History: A New Life of E. M. Forster by Wendy Moffat
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A REVELATORY LOOK AT THE INTIMATE LIFE OF THE GREAT AUTHOR--AND HOW IT SHAPED HIS MOST BE LOVED WORKS With the posthumous publication of his long-suppressed novel "Maurice "in 1970, E. M. Forster came out as a homosexual-- though that revelation made barely a ripple in his literary reputation. As Wendy Moffat persuasively argues in "A Great Unrecorded History," Forster's homosexuality was the central fact of his life. Between Wilde's imprisonment and the Stonewall riots, Forster led a long, strange, and imaginative life as a gay man. He preserved a vast archive of his private life--a history of gay experience he believed would find its audience in a "happier "time. "A Great Unrecorded History "is a biography of the heart. Moffat's decade of detective work--including first-time interviews with Forster's friends--has resulted in the first book to integrate Forster's public and private lives. Seeing his life through the lens of his sexuality offers us a radically new view--revealing his astuteness as a social critic, his political bravery, and his prophetic vision of gay intimacy. "A Great Unrecorded History "invites us to see Forster-- and modern gay history--from a completely new angle.
