This ironic and compassionate novel addresses the difficulties of friendship between the races in British-ruled India. A Passage to India is a complex, beautifully rendered story of how a young Englishwoman's hallucination that she has been assaulted by a friendly young Indian doctor in an ancient cave gives rise to racial hysteria. This subtle and affecting novel is noted for its strong mystical overtones; it was Forster's last and greatest work and remains a guide to understanding Indian civilization.

A Passage to India wants to describe the differences between the Eastern and Western culture and how they might find together. This seminar paper discusses the relevant parts of the structure of this novel, which help Forster to create the gap between the cultures and the struggle of them getting together.
