...still pondering on Love (Meg's is different from Helen's, and both are admirable) cultivated from the non-practical ideals and spiritual temperament, while buttressed by material means, thus virtue and grace made Female gender the savior (of soul-lost Henry Wilcox and money-deprived Leo Bast), not only in the book, but also (implicating) time eternal, when and where human propagate and society in order.
Author's nostalgia, whether of property or memory, is palpable. A heartache for Bast's tragedy was acute, but his legacy (of poverty and with Jacky) left no better ending to last.

Before Downton Abbey, there was Howard's End, a delightful romp of the classes.

Masterful descriptive narrative with intense emotional drama makes this one of the best novels concerning turn-of-the-century England. It's a fascinating historical period, with rapid changes in social mores and unsettling technological advances. Don't miss the film either. Only connect!

Warm and witty, this is also a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. A vivid portrait of a specific moment in history, both its social criticism and psychological insights are of surprisingly enduring relevance. One of Forster's more optimistic looks at human attempts to get free of "muddle."
