This book took longer to grab me than Maurice, I’m thinking because I was expected a main character as strongly central as Maurice himself. But though the Schlegels, Wilcoxes, and Basts form a looser and more complicated ensemble cast, it is again the titular entity that frames the story. The house itself is often in the distance, but Howards End, Mrs. Wilcox as its appendage, and England as its extension, are the emotional and thematic heart of the book. The story is a bit of a slow burn, but by the end all the threads of relationships, suspicions, socioeconomics, love, and inheritance, are woven together in a satisfying and interesting way.

“Harder came the rain, pouring out of a windless sky, and spattering up from the notice-boards of the house-agents, which lay in a row on the lawn where Charles had hurled them. She must have interviewed Charles in another world--where one did have interviews. How Helen would revel in such a notion! Charles dead, all people dead, nothing alive but houses and gardens.”

Thoroughly delectable from beginning to end. ( )

Howards End is a country house, not a place.

First published in 1910, it felt good to exercise my 21st Century brain muscles on #38 on Modern Library's list of the 100 Best English-language novels of the 20th Century.

I liked the Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, and their annoying brother, Tibby. All the intellectual conversations in this book were difficult at times to wrap my mind around, but well worth the effort.

My favorite part of the book was when they went to Queen's Hall, the "dreariest music-room in London, though not as dreary as the Free Trade Hall, Manchester" to hear Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. It was all described so wonderfully I had to pull that up on Spotify to see if I, like Helen, could envision goblins walking and elephants dancing.

Next up I want to watch the 1992 film and the 2017 4-part mini series. I'm curious to see how the very likeable Anthony Hopkins plays the horribly sexist, male chauvinist Henry Wilcox.

There are books that you get into, and there are books that you just don't get into.

This is one book that I just did not relate to. Even though many people have recommended this book highly, for me - it went over my head! ( )

Editor's Introduction
Idea for another novel shaping, and may do well to write it down.
One may as well begin with Helen’s letters to her sister.

Theatres and discussion societies attracted her less and less. She began to ‘miss’ new movements, and to spend her spare time re-reading or thinking . . . she had outgrown stimulants, and was passing from words to things. It was doubtless a pity not to keep up with Wedekind or John, but some closing of the gates is inevitable after thirty, if the mind itself is to become a creative power.
Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer.
Margaret greeted her lord with peculiar tenderness on the morrow. Mature as he was, she might yet be able to help him to the building of the rainbow bridge that should connect the prose in us with the passion. Without it we are meaningless fragments, half monk, half beasts, unconnected arches that have never joined into a man. With it love is born, and alights on the highest curve, glowing against the grey, sober against the fire. Happy the man who sees from either aspect the glory of these outspread wings. The roads of his soul lie clear, and he and his friends shall find easy-going.
The train sped northward, under innumerable tunnels. It was only an hour’s journey, but Mrs. Munt had to raise and lower the window again and again. She passed through the South Welwyn Tunnel, saw light for a moment, and entered the North Welwyn Tunnel, of tragic fame. She traversed the immense viaduct, whose arches span untroubled meadows and the dreamy flow of Tewin Water. She skirted the parks of politicians. At times the Great North Road accompanied her, more suggestive of infinity than any railway, awakening, after a nap of a hundred years, to such life as is conferred by the stench of motor-cars, and to such culture as is implied by the advertisements of antibilious pills. To history, to tragedy, to the past, to the future, Mrs. Munt remained equally indifferent; hers but to concentrate on the end of her journey.
They were both at their best when serving on committees. They did not make the mistake of handling human affairs in the bulk, but disposed of them item by item, sharply. ... It is the best—perhaps the only—way of dodging emotion.
