English novelist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. 
Forster had five novels published in his lifetime, Where Angels Fear to Tread(1905), The Longest Journey (1907), A Room with a View(1908), Howards End(1910) and A Passage to India (1924). A sixth novel, Maurice, was published shortly after his death, although it had been written nearly sixty years earlier.  Maurice, a homosexual love story, was controversial, given that Forster's sexuality had not been previously known or widely acknowledged. Forster had a long-term relationship with a married man called Bob Buckingham. After Forster’s and Buckingham’s deaths their ashes were mingled and scattered in a rose bed at the crematorium.
