I believe Forster wrote an essay either with this title or alluding to it in some way. Can anyone tell me where I might find it?

The most likely candidate seems to be 'Not listening to music'. You can find it in "Two Cheers for Democrocay". This book comprises of a compilation some of Forster's essays, texts of radio talks etc. It was first published in 1951 but there have been numerous reprints!

Sorry Chris for the typos. The most important one is of course in the mysterious booktitle. I wouldn't even know how to pronounce this. Stating the obvious: it's of course 'Democracy'.

Thanks Laura. I'll look it up. The upshot of 'Why I never go to concerts' is (apparently), ....because they're full of ugly people (!). As a concert goer, the thought amuses me. Thanks again. Chris

Iam having a hard time finding exactly when this essay was written.

It was written in 1939. That's at least what's given in the 1965 Penguin edition of _Two Cheers for Democracy_.

forster liked these 'turnaround' notions. in 'two cheers,' there is also an essay about books that had influenced him -- negatively.
