Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Double spaced, abstract: E.M. Forster published his novel A Passage to India in 1924, after he visited India beforehand in 1912 and in 1921. The novel deals in large parts with the political occupation of India by the British army and the concluding relations between the English and the native population. It is also about the friendship between the two main characters, Cyril Fielding and Dr. Aziz, with all its obstacles. A Passage to India wants to describe the differences between the Eastern and Western culture and how they might find together. This seminar paper discusses the relevant parts of the structure of this novel, which help Forster to create the gap between the cultures and the struggle of them getting together. These structural means are the use of a tripartite structure, specific locations and motifs in the novel.
