E. M. Forster wrote six novels, one of which (Maurice, 1971) was published posthumously because of its homosexual theme. He also wrote travel books, essays, reviews, criticism, biography, and some poetry. Together with Eric Crozier he wrote the libretto for the four-act opera Billy Budd (1951), adapted from Herman Melville’s famous work.
