About the Book

The E. M. Forster's book ''Where Angels Fear to Tread'' was published in 1905. The phrase "For fool's rush in where angels fear to tread" appears in Alexander Pope's essay on criticism, which serves as the source of the title. In 1966, the BBC produced a play of the month based on the book for television. Charles Sturridge turned it into a movie in 1991, with Rupert Graves, Giovanni Guidelli, Helen Mirren, Helena Bonham Carter, and Judy Davis in the lead roles. BBC Radio 4 aired a ten-part radio dramatization of the book. The Peabody Institute of Music hosted the world premiere of a Mark Weiser opera in 1999, while Opera San Jose had the opera's professional premiere in 2015. Her in-laws are not amused when the young English widow Lilia Herriton embarks on a world tour and weds an impoverished Italian while there. It is only natural that the marriage would break down and poor Lilia would pass very tragically. But Philip Harriton, his gloomy sister Harriet, and their well-intentioned acquaintance Miss Abbott must act quickly to correct Lilia's untimely pregnancy and the baby's upbringing as an Italian. The story's action starts at a train station, where Lilia Herriton is bidding farewell before leaving for an Italian vacation.

About Author

E. M. Forster

English novelist Edward Morgan Forster was born on 1 January 1879 at 6 Melcombe Place, Dorset Square, London. He was the only child of Welsh architect Edward Morgan Llewellyn Forster and Anglo-Irish Alice Clara "Lily" (née Whichelo). Forster tutored Syed Ross Masood, a 17-year-old Indian future Oxford student, in Latin, he fell in love in 1906. Forster worked with the British Red Cross in Alexandria, Egypt, as a Chief Searcher (for missing personnel) during the First World War as a conscientious objector. To his close friends, Forster was open about his homosexuality, but not to the general public. During his participation in the Bloomsbury group in the 1930s and 1940s, Forster came to be associated with the British Humanist Association. In 1946, Forster was chosen to be an honorary fellow at King's College in Cambridge. In 1949, he was offered a knighthood; in 1953, he was appointed a Companion of Honor. At the age of 82, Forster completed his final short tale, Little Imber. At the Buckinghams' house in Coventry, Warwickshire, Forster died from a stroke on June 7, 1970, at the age of 91. His ashes, mixed with Buckingham's, were afterward dispersed in the crematorium's rose garden, close to Warwick University.
