    Description
    Born into a privileged way of life, Maurice grows up confident in status, precise in social ritual. Yet although priggish and conforming, he finds himself increasingly attracted to his own sex. Through Clive, whom he encounters at Cambridge, and through Alec, the gamekeeper on Clive's country estate, Maurice gradually experiences a profound emotional and sexual awakening.Completed in 1914, Maurice is a powerful condemnation of the repressive attitudes of British society. Aware that its publication would cause a furore, Forster ensured that it did not appear until after his death in 1970.
