An Inward Collapse of the Human Perspective in Forster's A Passage to India - An Inward Collapse of the Human Perspective in Forster's A Passage to India        The reverberation of sound in the form of an echo is threaded throughout E.M. Forster's A Passage to India, and the link between the echo and the hollowness of the human spirit is depicted in the text. The echo is not heard in the beginning of the text when the English newcomers, Mrs. Moore and Ms. Quested, arrive in India; it is more clearly heard as their relationship with India gains complexity. The influence of the colonizers and the colonized on one another is inevitable; however, the usual assumption is that the colonists are the most successful in imposing their values and ideologies on the individuals whom they view as the "natives." In an introduction to a text depicting a portrait of the colonizer and the colonized, Jean-Paul Sartre states that in attempting to dehumanize colonized individuals, the colonist becomes dehumanized himself....   [tags: Passage to India Essays]

The Important Role of the Marabar Caves in A Passage to India - The Important Role of the Marabar Caves in A Passage to India       During the fourteen years that followed the publication of Howards End, Edward Morgan Forster underwent a harsh mood change that culminated in the publication of A Passage to India, Forster's bitterest book (Shusterman 159).  Forster was not alone in his transition to a harsher tone in his fiction.  A Passage to India was written in the era that followed the First World War.  George Thomson writes that the novel "may be viewed as a reaction to the disappearance of God in the nineteenth century....  Twentieth century writers have symbolized this world without God as a wasteland" (293).  Post- war writers were appalled by the atrocities brought about by war and, therefore, concluded that Earth is not overseen by a God.  Rather, they believed that the world was, in a sense, empty.  Nowhere can this emptiness be seen better than in the second of the novel's three major sections, "Caves."  Thomson writes that this section is "a great wasteland image in which...the Marabar expresses the nonexistence of God" (293).  "Caves" begins as the story's major characters make a journey to the mystifying Marabar Caves.  In the monotony, hollowness, and evanescent beauty of the Marabar Caves is revealed a truth about the universe that Mrs....   [tags: Passage to India Essays]
