FRED ASTAIRE returns for a second 90 -minute solo guest visit, singing, dancing and chatting, in a special edition of "The Dick Cavett Show," on the ABC Television Network Wednesday, Oct. 13, 10 :30 p.m. By CHRISTOPHER LEHMANN-HAUPT (C) 1971 N.Y. Times Newi Service Maurice. By E. M. Forster, 256 pages. Norton. $6.95. The news of this book's exist ence may be stale by now. The fact is that E. M. Forster wrote "Maurice" many years ago but withheld it from publication during his lifetime because of its potentially controversial treatment of homosexuality. But it may come as a surprise to many people that Maurice is not a sensational oddity or some marginal remnant of a great writing career. On the contrary, it is a major Forster novel, written during 1913 and 1914, immediately after he had completed "Howards End" and a decade before he was to produce his masterpiece, "Passage to India" And it is a wonder ful novel to read—rich in its subtle intelligence, beautifully controlled in its development, deeply moving, in short, the work of an exceptional artist working close to the peak of his creative powers. It could be described as a love story, I suppose, although let me say at once that it is almost completely unnecessary to identify with homosexual love to become involved in the story (I'll explain that "almost" below). Actually it is two love stories, each of which is a milestone on the hero's path to complete self-awakening, The first is initiatory — a deep platonic friendship between two Cambridge gentlemen, Maurice Hail, a rather ordinary young man of the middle class who is not yet aware of his nature; and Clive Durham, a young squire and future pillar of English society who is passing through a "hellenic" stage he will shortly outgrow, The second is the far more dangerous liaison between Maurice and the Durham's gamekeeper, Alec Scudder, which is consumated in the book's happy ending, when the two men decide to throw over everything and live together and love each other as outlaws in the greenwood. Between the first rela­ tionship and the second, Maurice passes through hell, as he experiences the loss of Clive 's love, the terrible loneliness that ensues, the discovery of his carnal desires for young men, and the gradual recognition of the irremediable nature of his con dition, which nothing — not women, nor work, nor even hypnotism — can alter. And we share his agony, not out of pity, but out of recognition of the injustice of the society that will not permit him to live as he is. "Maurice" could be described as a love story, yes; but it is also considerably more. For as Forster has depictured it, Maurice's homosexuality is not a condition to be explained and defended, but a symbol of human feelings. The obstacles that thwart its expression are not conditions local to the novel, but superbly realized images of English society before World War I. And while what Forster points out in his witty "terminal note" may be true - that the book "dates" somewhat because "it belongs to an England where it was still possible to get lost" — the images are sufficiently radiant to make the story timeless. Or to put it quite another way, if you don't know what England was like in the early part of the century, then reading this novel is a good way to find out. Moreover, you will see that the oppressive conditions of that world are scarcely things of the past. The important thing is that we have a major new E. M. the news is an occasion for re- Forster novel in our midst and joicing. REWARD^ Astle Realty Co.
