Commonplace books (or commonplaces) are a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. They have been kept from antiquity, and were kept particularly during the Renaissance and in the nineteenth century. Such books are essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas.

Forster's "Commonplace" book is a better read than at least one of his novels (Maurice), and several of his non-fiction books (Pharos and Pharillon, e.g.), which sounds like I'm damning it with very faint praise.

To be the subject of a two volume bio (by Furbank) and several more recents bios boggles the mind.

Forster lived a very dull life. If he had written more books (Anthony Burgess rightly called him costive), he would have been a much better subject for biography. Otherwise, he was a closet homosexual who had a fair amount of friends: what else can be said about him--except, of course, by himself, which is why I recommend his "Commonplace Book" to all who think A PASSAGE TO INDIA is a 20th-century masterpiece, which it most certainly is!

Forster is civilized in a way few people are or ever have been; it's a rare treat to peek into his personal scrapbook to read his favourite quotations and thoughts upon them.
You'll wait a long time to find another book stuffed with this kind of sheer intellectual value. Again, a rare treat.
