Book Summary

What did happen to Miss Quested in the Marabar Caves?

This tantalizing question provides the intense drama at the center of Forster's last and greatest novel, which explores racial tension in colonial India.

After a mysterious incident during their visit to the Marabar Caves, the charming Dr. Aziz is accused of assaulting Adela Quested, a native young Englishwoman.  As he is brought to trial the fragile structure of Anglo-Indian relations collapses and the racism inherent to colonialism is exposed--a theme which still has powerful, dangerous realities today.

Yet the novel is also, in Forster's words, 'about something wider than politics...about the universe as embodied in the Indian earth and the Indian sky.'
