Compromise and Resistance in Postcolonial Writing offers a new critical approach to E. M. Forster's legacy. It examines key themes in Forster's work (homosexuality, humanism, modernism, liberalism) and their relevance to post-imperial and postcolonial novels by important contemporary writers.
"Compromise and Resistance in Postcolonial Writing is an illuminating study of Forster's legacies that offers a range of probing insights into his cosmopolitan humanism and its challenge to normative ideologies. It will be essential reading for Forster scholars and anyone interested in the discursive transformations that occur when postcolonial writers engage with canonical texts." - Professor John Thieme, University of East Anglia, UK
