Written in 1914 by the Nobel Prize-nominated author of Howard's End, this intimate portrait of homosexual desire "seems as relevant as ever" (The Guardian).

From early adolescence to his college years at Cambridge and into professional life at his father's firm, Maurice Hall plays the part of the conventional Englishman. All the while, he harbors a secret wish to lose himself from society and embrace who he truly is.

Maurice's first love, Clive Durham, introduces him to the ancient Greeks who embraced same-sex attraction. But when Clive marries a woman, Maurice is distraught enough to seek a hypnotist who might "cure" him of his homosexuality. In his quest to accept his true self, Maurice must ultimately go against the grain of society's unspoken rules of class, wealth, and politics.

Though Forster completed Maurice in 1914, he left instructions for it be published only after his death. Since its release in 1971, Maurice has been widely praised and adapted for major stage productions as well as the 1987 Oscar-nominated film adaptation starring Hugh Grant and James Wilby.

"The work of an exceptional artist working close to the peak of his powers." The New York Times
