From Longman's Cultural Edition series, Howards End, edited by Douglas Mao, presents a wealth of critical and historical contexts for E. M. Forster’s brilliant novel about clashing values and love for a house.

 Art and commerce, nature and industry, idealism and pragmatism, women and men: the struggles, partings, and reconciliations between these pairs drive the narrative of one of the great English novels of the twentieth century. On its first release, Howards End was hailed as an extraordinary achievement. Never out of print since, it has attracted generations of readers with its splendid prose, its sensitive rendering of relationships, and its wickedly clever plot.  

Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts-cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete texts of important literary works, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track its composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.

The following Longman Cultural Editions are available now: Beowulf, Hamlet, Othello, Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein, Hard Times, Northanger Abbey, King Lear, The Merchant of Venice, Dorothy Wordsworth, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and WutheringHeights.

New titles include Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Shelley's Percy Shelley, and Kipling's Kim.
