Forster @ 50

Commemorating the Half-Centenary of E. M. Forster’s life

Dorking Museum presents a collaborative exhibition with Nottingham Trent University PHD students Heather Green and Sean Richardson.

The exhibition examines the impetus and aftermath of literary favourites such A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910), A Passage to India (1924) and Maurice (1971), as well as bringing Forster’s lesser known works to public attention.

The exhibition also explores the forgotten relationship between Forster and the local community: his charity work, his pageant plays, his support for refugees.

E. M. Forster lived in Abinger, so Dorking Museum is the natural home to this exciting exhibition.
