The characters of the Wilcox and Schlegel family members stay with you long after the book is back on the shelf. The title comes from Mrs Wilcox's family home, Howards End. The contrast is between free-thinking, imaginative intellectuals and business oriented, financially secure capitalists. The conflicts are between the classes, and between the sexes. E. M. Forster creates moments of humor and tragedy, but overall I consider this story his masterpiece. It deserves more than one read.
