Revue de presse

A Passage to India is one of the great books of the twentieth century and has had enormous influence. We need its message of tolerance and understanding now more than ever. Forster was years ahead of his time, and we ought to try to catch up with him.” –Margaret Drabble

“The crystal clear portraiture, the delicate conveying of nuances of thought and life, and the astonishing command of his medium show Forster at the height of his powers.” –The New York Times

“[Forster is] a supreme storyteller . . . The novel seems to me more completely ‘achieved’ than anything else he wrote.” –from the new Introduction by P. N. Furbank --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Exploring issues of colonialism, faith and the limits of comprehension, E.M. Forster's A Passage to India is edited by Oliver Stallybrass, with an introduction by Pankaj Mishra. When Adela Quested and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, they quickly feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced 'Anglo-Indian' community. Determined to escape the parochial English enclave and explore the 'real India', they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz, a cultivated Indian Muslim. But a mysterious incident occurs while they are exploring the Marabar caves with Aziz, and the well-respected doctor soon finds himself at the centre of a scandal that rouses violent passions among both the British and their Indian subjects. A masterly portrait of a society in the grip of imperialism, A Passage to India compellingly depicts the fate of individuals caught between the great political and cultural conflicts of the modern world. In his introduction, Pankaj Mishra outlines Forster's complex engagement with Indian society and culture. This edition reproduces the Abinger text and notes, and also includes four of Forster's essays on India, a chronology and further reading. E. M. Forster (1879-1970) was a noted English author and critic and a member of the Bloomsbury group. His first novel, Where Angels Fear To Tread appeared in 1905. The Longest Journey appeared in 1907, followed by A Room With A View (1908), based partly on the material from extended holidays in Italy with his mother. Howards End (1910) was a story that centred on an English country house and dealt with the clash between two families, one interested in art and literature, the other only in business. Maurice was revised several times during his life, and finally published posthumously in 1971. If you enjoyed A Passage to India, you might like Rudyard Kipling's Kim, also available in Penguin Classics. 'His great book ... masterly in its presence and its lucidity'Anita Desai

4.0 étoiles sur 5 India VS England 18 avril 2011
Par H. Bessy
Format:Broché
Une réflexion cruelle mais réaliste sur tout ce qui opposait l'Inde à son colonisateur. Les deux nations se côtoient sans arriver à se comprendre. Les tentatives de rapprochement bien que pleines de bonnes intentions semblent toujours se révéler inutiles et chacun se retrouve frustré par cette incompréhension mutuelle. Une œuvre incontournable de la littérature anglaise et une critique avisée de l'attitude des représentants de l'Empire Britannique par rapport aux habitants des pays qu'ils occupaient.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Une oeuvre surestimé et une réflexion banale 20 mai 2009
Par Alastor78 VOIX VINE
Format:Broché
Passage to India, aussi appelé "La route de l'Inde" en français est un livre de E.M Forster qu'on retrouve dans la liste des 100 ouvrages majeurs du 20ème siècle du très prestigieux Time Magazine. Une valeur sûre me direz-vous? Et bien absolument pas!

Vide et inutile, voilà les mots qui me sont venu à l'esprit après avoir refermer un roman de 300 pages durant lesquels l'histoire ne s'amorcera jamais. Forster préfère mettre en avant les relations entre Anglais et Indien, ce qui dans la pratique et judicieux, mais qui sur le papier consiste à enfoncer des portes ouvertes en nous faisant "découvrir" des problèmes inter-communautaires sans reliefs et surtout connu de tous. Quiconque c'est un temps soit peu pencher sur la question du colonialisme au cours de ses études ou de son temps libre ne trouvera là rien de bien concluant. Au rayon des réflexion seul une amorce de la théorie de Forster qui lit homosexualité et relation sociale devrait soulever l'intérêt du lecteur. En effet selon Forster l'homosexualité permet de dépasser les barrières sociales, une théorie originale et audacieuse mais qui n'est ici qu'à l'état de sous-entendu mal assumé et inapproprié. En effet entre l'hétérosexualité affirmée des personnages et l'idée sous-jacente d'une relation sentimentale entre eux on finit par se dire qu'il y a là une contradiction douteuse. Si Forster avait assumé son sujet on s'ennuierait beaucoup moins. Je recommande donc d'autre de ses ouvrages où il traite de manière plus directe du sujet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extraordinary Classic 21 juin 2002
Par Westley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've read and enjoyed several Forster books, but "A Passage to India" tops them all. The plot concerns the arrival in Chandrapore, India of Ms. Quested and her potential mother-in-law, Mrs. Moore. They come to visit Mrs. Moore's son, Ronny, who is engaged to Ms. Quested. Ms. Quested and Mrs. Moore are the typical new arrivals, and they desire to see more of the "real" India than they can see with their fellow Brits, who tend to gather in the state Club and socialize only with each other. They become involved with Dr. Aziz, a local Indian physician, who promises to show them the famous, nearby Marabar caves. Dr. Aziz is solicitous toward the Brits and craves their friendship, but he clearly has negative feelings toward them also.

At the Marabar caves, an incident occurs (or does not occur) to Ms. Quested that alters all of the characters and their town inextricably. There is a trial and a bit of a mystery, but the focus is always on the characters and their conflicts. In particular, the tension between the English and the people of India is beautifully portrayed. The characters are multi-dimensional, as are their motives, which makes for a fascinating read. I found the book to be quite moving and sad - a true classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece. 23 décembre 1999
Par medelliana - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is book is incredible, and one of my personal favorites. Its beauty is too easily overlooked, because it is so elegantly subtle. Every aspect of the storytelling is masterful: the prose is lush and nuanced, and every character is exquisitely drawn. Drawing from the slimmest of plots, Forster weaves what seems to be an isolated incident into a complex tapestry of emotion. The central focus are the characters, who are sharply realistic and utterly, utterly human. Another aspect that I liked very much is that it takes an era, the British Raj in India, which is otherwise interpreted only with the most hotly colored emotions, and presents it with a marked neutrality, presenting it only through the eyes of the characters. A marvelous read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Forster's Best Work, a masterpiece on so many levels 3 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
E.M. Forsters book "A passage to India" is indeed one of the best books I have ever read in my life. Forster shows great skill in bringing the tragic tale of an attempted friendship between Aziz and Fielding.
The book revolves around what may be termed the secret understanding of the heart. This is an understanding of people, their feelings and their interaction with other humans.
In a story which is not primarily political, Forster makes a political comment on what was happening in India at that time.
The issue of the Marabar caves is not really an issue at all because even Forster says that it doesn't really matter what if anything happened in the caves, because it is the repercussions of what did of didn't happen that are important. I believe that the expedition into the Marabar caves merely amplified the emotions already inherent in the characters, for example Adela Quested tells us that she felt unwell since the teaparty with Fielding which took place long before the journey to the caves.
Forster also presents us with well rounded characters except in the case of the Anglo-Indians, who are presented as tyrannical oppressors, and yet even they aren't all bad as they stand for values like honour and chivalry. What really annoys me about the Anglo-Indians is their high and mighty attitude, and pompous ways.
I feel Forster uses character like Fielding, Moore, Godbole and Aziz to show us about true humanity.
He doesn't pretend to understand India, it is a 'muddle' but through India he brings universal quandries and boundries to light.
I recommend you read and reread this book as it is undoubtedly one of the best in english literature.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Clash of Two Cultures Basis for Tragic Tale 13 décembre 2007
Par Antoinette Klein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Britishers Mrs. Moore and her prospective daughter-in-law, Adela Quested, make the arduous journey to India to visit Mrs. Moore's son, Ronny Heslop. He is a magistrate in Chandrapore, India, during the British occupation of that country. The two ladies make the acquaintance of Dr. Aziz, a local doctor who offers them a chance to see the "real India" by visiting the Marabar caves. Hoping to please the British ladies, he plans a wonderfully complicated and expensive journey. However, an unfortunate misunderstanding erupts into a tragic affair that point up the cultural differences and seething anger between the two cultures.

Was Miss Quested attacked by Dr. Aziz in the caves? This question becomes the central issue which propels the plot and lays bare the hostility and polarizing feelings of superiority and inferiority prevalent at the time. The reader is swept into the life of Dr. Aziz as more misunderstandings cause a permanent rift with his dearest friend and gives him a genuine hatred of the English. While the pompous Heslop contends his countrymen are in India to do justice and keep the peace, the appalling behavior on both sides explodes at a trial and lingers long after.

Forster is adept at not taking sides, at showing both the British as well as the Indian side of the issues. In his fair and balanced telling, the reader can alternately sympathize with Dr. Aziz or Miss Quested. Neither wins when the truth is revealed and both are forever scarred by the incident in the Marabar caves.

In 1984, David Lean brought this drama to the big screen and, in my opinion, actually improved on the source material by making the characters more sympathetic and capturing visually the beauty of India. Mrs. Moore and Miss Quested atop an elephant riding to the Marabar caves is a breath-taking scene and one any viewer will long remember.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hard work, amply rewarded 25 février 2009
Par Birdman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I will not summarize the plot of this intricate novel, which is freely available through authoritative sites across the Web.

If you love novels of character and theme, you will love and remember this painstakingly written novel of bigotry and colonialism before Indian independence. The concept which clothes the story: the Caucasian, very proper, very British Miss Quested accuses the Indian, Dr. Aziz, of physical assault in a cave. The facts of the event were literally invisible. The balance of the novel is a clash of cultures, biases and characters, all of which conspire to express "reality."

Forster is methodical in way he prepares his readers for the Event and its aftermath. He writes with the precision of a literary surgeon just as he did in A ROOM WITH A VIEW and HOWARD'S END.

If you'd like explore Forster's writing, this is a fine place to start. Give it a little work and it won't let you down. The author was one of the great masters of the English language and an outspoken adversary of bigotry. Most of us have experienced bias at least once or twice in our lives. For that reason alone, I'd try it.

Forster is also the great exemplar of the modern novel. Few were as consistently aware of form. Few had the ability to infuse raw emotion into such civilized prose.

Go for it.
