E.M. Forster

Edward Morgan Forster (1879–1970) was one of the most respected literary figures of his age. Among his best known novels are A Room with a View, A Passage to India, Howard’s End, and Maurice. Alexandria: A History and a Guide was inspired by the time he spent in Egypt during the First World War, and was first published in 1922, followed, in 1923, by Pharos and Pharillon. The editor of this volume, Miriam Allott, held professorships at London and at Liverpool, including a position as A.C. Bradley professor of modern literature.
