I am a student doing a paper and was wondering whether anyone has any information on Forster's "A Passage to India" as a response to Whitman's "Passage to India". I need to right a paper on this subject, and I need more information than similarities in the titles! Thanks for help.

See also below at the posting that is called 'The meaning of the title A Passage to India'. I can add to it that Forster did NOT choose the title merely because he liked it (as I say below); that was a factor only. However, he rather thought of it afterwards, so it was rather that he saw after he had finished the novel that there were similarities - it was no response at all!
