The Other Side of the Moon-E M Forster s India

The theme of E M Forster s "A Passage to India" has aroused controversy. According to some critics, the political background of the novel is deceptive and the novel is really concerned with metaphysical ideas. Others emphasise the political nature of the incidents and their repercussions; in this view, the novel is really about the struggle between British liberalism and Britain's imperial role in India, This paper suggests that both these approaches are incorrect and inadequate. Underneath the glow of imperial and native rhetoric, the author argues, Forster never disavowed colonialism' The novel represents the crisis of the liberal faith in which India is the echoing background and against which the liberal conscience reveals its hollowness.
