Maurice with Diarmuid Hester

E. M. Forster in Cambridge. The cultural historian Diarmuid Hester joins Henry to explore the streets and colleges of Cambridge before escaping to the greenwood to discuss Maurice by E. M. Forster, his novel of same-sex love that remained unpublished throughout his lifetime. Diarmuid and Henry visit King’s College, where Forster lived both as an undergraduate and an honorary fellow and they visit Madingley Hall and Madingley Dell.


2021 was the 50th anniversary of the first, posthumous publication of Maurice in 1971.
