The Fantasies of E. M. Forster to Explore the Inner Self in his Short Stories

Udayan Mukherjee


Forster has used fantasy as a technique with his characteristic ironic prose style combining poetry and symbolism. So it is necessary to define fantasy and examine its use as a fictional technique in general and E. M. Forster in particular because as Forster claims, most of his short stories are fantasies in form. With his characteristic ironical personal style, Forster has been able to explore his inner experiences, his self, through these fantasies, by using symbols and poetry in them, and by giving allegorical dimension to them. He also shows how this inner self confronts with the society of the world.

Key words: Aspects, Faun, Fantasies, Ghosts, Pseudo, Supernatural, Technique.
