Summary

The richest and most ambitious novel by one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, this masterpiece counts the human cost of British-occupied India, a society afflicted by imperialism and racism.

When Adela Quested arrives in the Indian town of Chandrapore in search of “the real India,” she quickly grows disillusioned with its prejudiced colonial community. Determined to escape the insular English enclave, she and her elderly companion, Mrs. Moore, seek the guidance of the charming and well-respected Dr. Aziz, a young Muslim physician. But a mysterious incident occurs while they are exploring the Marabar caves with Aziz, and the doctor soon finds himself at the center of a scandal that rocks Chandrapore to its core. 

E. M. Forster’s beautifully rendered characters illuminate the tensions of British-occupied India and make A Passage to India a masterpiece not only of historical impact but of deep humanity.
