‘Independent, Cantabrigian, and a bachelor’

  • Frank Swinnerton
Part of the Interviews and Recollections book series (IR)


Forster, independent, Cantabrigian, and a bachelor, has never been discouraged by lack of means, by fear, or by the need to rattle his brains for ideas when those brains have been run dry by overtime. He has written only when and what he wanted to write; and if he has not wanted to write he has not done so. This has affected all his work, which has the grace and ease of an amateur’s pleasure, as well as the lovely clarity derived from an intellect which all must admire.
