Description

How well has A Passage to India worn? This critical anthology responds by putting together postcolonial, feminist, liberal and several other voices of today which talk to each other and talk across each other to the text. The volume interrogates afresh the major characters of the text, polarities between Hinduism and Islam, myths and possibilities of cross-cultural friendships, muddle and mystery of the rape, cultural paradigms of the colony and the empire, and other key issues. Eighty years down the road, it attempts a searching study of this canonical text.

In the essays that deal with a Passage to India, race, class and gender are used as critical categories that constitute human experience in terms of multiple contexts. Setting aside the essay reprinted in the present collection, those that scrutinize the relationship between race and gender and the profound fragility of colonial intimacy (Tambling, 167) include Rustom Bharucha’s Forster’s friends, Sara Suleri Goodyear’s Forster’s Imperial Exotic and Penelope Pether’s A Passage to India: A Passage to the Patria. This last-named essay explores Forster’s return to the knowable world of the Home Counties with an emphasis on gender-specificity. The anthology thus opens up a challenging range of contexts, whose value is often assessed in direct proportion to their state of fracture.
