Howards End is a novel written by E. M. Forster and originally published in 1910. The book is considered to be Forster's masterpiece.

The book deals with social norms and codes of conduct in England at the beginning of the 20th century, through different visions by families of different social classes.

The main plot revolves around the following three families:

  • The Wilcox: is a wealthy and capitalist family whose wealth has been generated in the colonies.
  • The Schlegel siblings: idealistic and intelligent of German origin and dedicated to cultural activities.
  • The Basts: a young, lower-class couple.

The Schlegels will try to help the Basts get out of poverty and overcome social barriers while trying to rid the Wilcox of some social and economic prejudices.

However, the novel will emphasize the difficulty of overcoming these social barriers at the time despite the human attempt. Other issues it deals with is the hypocritical attitude of society towards women and sexual morality.
