Abstract

This paper will discuss E. M. Forster's short stories, using George Meredith's theory of the comic spirit and plot as a basis for critical analysis. In addition, it will suggest that some of Forster's characteristic ideas, which may appear in his later novels, occur first, and in developed form, in his short stories.
