Overview

Howards End takes place in Edwardian England. Three families represent three social classes: the Wilcoxes are wealthy capitalists, the class that is displacing the aristocracy; the Schlegel sisters represent the enlightened bourgeoisie; and the Basts are in the lower middle class. The book asks the question 'Who will inherit England?' and answers it through the ownership of the house, Howards End, as it passes from family to family.
