Daily Dose

From Concerning E. M. Forster, by Frank Kermode


"Committed to a certain realism in his fiction, Forster sought ways to make his novels musical as well as respectful of the manners appropriate to the traditional novel and reasonably acceptable to the unadventurous customer (whom he referred to as Uncle Willie)."

From Beethoven, Wagner, Vinteuil
