Review: E.M. Forster’s “Where Angels Fear to Tread”

by writereaderly

em forster where angels fear to treadYegads. The posh family’s widowed daughter-in-law has gone and found herself an Italian, and then had the bad taste to have a child to him, and the *worse* taste to die. Whatever is one to do about the child? It’s a social comedy in that each character is made to look ridiculous just by being themselves and of their class, and it ticks the boxes for an accomplished novella. Okay.
