    Description

    The disregard of a dying woman's bequest, a girl's attempt to help an impoverished clerk, and the marriage of an idealist and a materialist intersect at an estate called Howards End.

    There, the lives of three families become entangled. The Wilcoxes, who own the estate, are a wealthy family who made their fortune in the American colonies. The Schlegel siblings - Margaret, Helen, and Tibby - are lively socialites whose spirited and active lifestyles are representative of the intellectual bourgeoisie. And the Basts are a young couple from a lower-class background who are struggling to survive. As chance brings them together, societal conventions come into question as does the ownership of Howards End.

    Through the fate of the estate - as well as the lives of the families who are affiliated with it - Forster creates a brilliant parallel to the fate of English society itself.

    a time with the Schlegels

    curious tale indeed. could have been called the Schlegel sisters. great performance except for Henry who sounds angry and stern throughout.

    Interesting book, charmingly told

    The book reminded me of standing in the ocean, facing the waves. This book starts out light and easy — providing a beautiful introduction to all the characters of the story — before it moves into a rhythm of stormy(ish) and calm tides. The relationship between the three siblings, sisters Margaret, Helen, and brother Tibby, are interesting and unique. I loved the reader of this book. Her voice and tone precisely match that of the two primary characters, Margaret and Helen.

    Enduring, but Bast grows ever more our tragic hero

    Henry reflects modern corporatists, wealth extraction, legalism, "us vs them", "build a wall", White privilege, gender stereotypes, self sufficiency and "bootstraps".

    Margaret stands in for present-day progressives, environmental justice, equality, inclusion, open-society, human rights, non-binary roles, "lend a hand" and "give a leg up".

    Leonard represents today's masses of university educated minimum-wage "essential-workers", drawn from middle / upper-middle / lower-middle and lower classes, who now find themselves burdened with college indebtedness and a future mortgaged to the fleeting dream that a good education will open doors.

    Remarkable

    I’ve always loved this book. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. But the audio production needed improvement. You can hear the reader swallowing between sentences throughout.
