Where Angels Fear to Tread

Author(s): E. M. Forster

SECONDHAND BOOKS | Classic Fiction

Where Angels Fear to Tread is the first of Forster's Italian novels. It is a forerunner to A Room With a View, but with a much darker worldview. There is little whimsical about it. The homoerotic element incorporated in the friendship between Phillip and Gino, the two male leads, is notable and places the novel as a harbinger for Maurice. Many readers find the book one of Forster's most compelling narratives, and more than a few consider it their favorite. In particular, fans of Maurice's Scudder will appreciate Forster's portrait of Gino. .......... "Where Angels Fear To Tread is ... a whirlwind that spins around the character of Philip Herriton, who is torn between what he believes is right, and what he has been taught to believe is right. His attraction to the swarthy Gino adds an unspoken layer of tension to that conflict. It's a surprising book because it defies convention, and oscillates between comedy and tragedy." -- Christopher Bryant, Polari Magazine..........Watersgreen House is an independent international book publisher with editorial staff in the UK and USA.
