The Hill of Devi

Join a young E.M. Forster on his personal journey of discovering his beloved India for the first time. Through letters written home and personal recollections, Forster paints the picture of Dewas State, a strange, bewildering, and enchanting slice of pre-independence India.In this collection, Forster shares insight into the lives of Indian royalty, and at times humorous accounts of the stark contrasts between excess and poverty he encounters. From letters that set the scene for Forsters lifelong friendship with the Maharaja, to an essay on the Maharaja himself and his experiences as the Maharajas personal secretary, The Hill of Devi is a fascinating chronicle of the authors experience in the land he called the oddest corner of the world outside Alice in Wonderland.The Hill of Devi is an essential companion to Forsters masterwork, A Passage to India.
