Where Angels Fear to Tread catapulted E.M. Forster into his renowned career as an author. He would become known better for other works, such as A Passage to India (ISBN: 9781645940845) but from the beginning was known for his wit, insight, and originality. In Where Angels Fear to Tread, we witness unrequited love, Italian romance, and, ultimately, death and tragedy. In other words, the novel is a variation on so many of our lives throughout history. Except, perhaps, the romance playing out in Italy.
