    A Passage to India Forster, E. We're not the only ones who wonder about the future of literary acclaim. Will they ever carry enough clout to compete with tomes like Moby Dick? Analyze how an author develops and contrasts the points of view of different characters or narrators in a text. Were Not Written by Someone Famous.

    Fair, elegant, and ambitious, she is married to a white man unaware of her African American heritage, and has severed all ties to her past. With wit and irony, West explores Cleo's twisted and sometimes downright conflicting motivations, as she's driven by a desire to connect to her family, and at the same time dead-set on escaping her poverty-stricken past. The story was adapted into an Academy Award-nominated film in that, despite widespread critical acclaim, was notoriously snubbed of all 11 awards it was nominated for. At the time, the story of a young Englishwoman's romantic entanglements, quest for marriage, and tragic love triangles was totally original. The thoughts of the characters include constant regrets and thoughts of the past, their struggles with mental illness and post-traumatic stress from World War I, and the effect of social pressures. Her ironic, sometimes even mocking, depictions of society's rigid, often ridiculous, rules, give her work a delicious, unexpected edge, particularly in this novel.

    This slim, yet dense, novel was way ahead of its time. Historically, it's been almost impossible to get work by women writers labeled "literary," much less classic, and, consequently, deserving, potentially life-changing masterpieces have slipped through the cracks. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Her apocalyptic vision of life is expressed through grotesque, often comic situations in which the principal character faces a problem of salvation.
