E.M. Forster wrote Maurice in 1912, although it was not published until 1971, after his death. I can see it was a very subversive book in 1912. It might also have autobiographical aspects, as Forster was a closeted homosexual, and Maurice’s wakening to his own sexuality rings so true (with the caveat here that I am a heterosexual female). Foster’s writing also shine in the social commentary of the class distinctions of England at the time. He is too an acute observer of his characters’ psychological responses. Yet..

SPOILERS AHEAD:


My 2014 mind has trouble believing the relationship between Maurice and Clive. Then, I feel that by finally portraying a sexual encounter between Maurice and Alec (the lower class gamekeeper), Forster seem to equate sexuality to a less noble stance. There is something here that reminded me of [b:Lady Chatterley's Lover|32067|Lady Chatterley's Lover|D.H. Lawrence|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388355518s/32067.jpg|3249302] in that true sexual expression is repressed by the aristocrats, and only the less cultured can really appreciate the rawness of it.

Maybe I am judging Forster on the very issue he tried to expose. Or maybe I am judging him for something that was beyond him to perceive, being a part of it as he personally was. But part of me senses this book as a cautionary tale, I am only not sure if it cautions about the loneliness of homosexuality, the hypocrisy of Edwardian values towards sexuality and class distinctions, or homosexuality itself.

I am glad I read though.

E.M. Forster was gay.
Gay. Gay. Gay. Gay. Gay
Gayer than a Mayday Parade.

Homosexual!

IN YER FACE!

Except he wasn't. I mean, he was gay but he wasn't IN YER FACE! about it. This is because of the prevailing culture in Cambridge (where he was a Professor) and probably the rest of Britain, when he was alive. Everybody knew he was gay and that was OK as long as he wasn't IN YER FACE! about it - or indeed as long as he didn't raise the subject in any way at all to any one publicly. I'm sure he thought this was an improvement on the fate of another notable writer of an earlier time, Oscar Wilde, who was also gay. Gay. Gay. Gay. Gay. Gay etc. and got chucked into Reading Gaol for it - whereupon he wrote one of his finest works. But still, that didn't mean Forster had to be happy with his lot. In fact the worst thing about it, for him, was the hypocrisy. Because all his colleagues really did know he was gay. Gay. Gay etc and if they thought it was OK to be gay then why was it not OK to be gay and talk about it?

Forster hence came to be highly sensitive to hypocrisy in general in British society and to despise it. Truly loathe it. This is plain in all his novels, but he never tackled the root cause. Or so it seemed until after his death when a book he had written early on in his career as a novelist was published. This posthumous publication was on his own instructions. He could not publish it in his own lifetime without ruining his own life. But afterwards? Well, it might do some good then and help pave the way for people who are gay. Gay etc to be able to be IN YER FACE! about it without fear of negative consequences.

PS. Oh yeah, the book: If you're into Gay Romance you might like it. Otherwise you'd be better off with everything else Forster ever published except maybe Where Angels Fear to Tread.

PPS. Did I mention that Forster was gay?

PPPS. Go on Goodreads, I dare you to delete my review that's principally about how gay E.M. Forster was. I dare you!
