forster depiction of the english in chandrapore in the passage to india
Answers 1Add Yours
Forster's descriptions of the English in Chandrapore is anything but complimentary. The English women are portrayed as racist, condescending, and almost vicious in their treatment of the Indians. Their husbands, on the other hand, although also seen as condescending and snobbish are redeemed by what seems to be their true purpose..... performing their jobs. None-the-less, English women are depicted in a far harsher light than their husbands, with the husbands being given the benefit of the doubt by almost seeming hopelessly ignorant rather than malicious.
