Format: Hardcover
Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson was Forster's friend and mentor from the latter's Cambridge days. Their friendship survived for many years afterwards, it was with Dickinson that Forster visited India for the first time, the visit which gave him the initial idea to write "A Passage to India".
After Dickinson's death Forster was entrusted with the preparation for publication his mentor's memoirs. Publication without pruning was impossible in the 1930s as Dickinson described in detail his discreet vice - foot fetish. Forster decided to go from editing to writing a biography of the friend which would be based on Dickinson's writing in as much as it was possible.
75 years after its publication the book is largely forgotten and probably justly so - Dickinson's scholarship and role in the creation of the League of Nations make him a moderately interesting figure only for historians of the period. The book retains some interest as a monument raised to the memory of a good friend by a great writer, E. M. Forster.

Tedious. Written in a far different era than today.
