This chapter examines the views and thoughts of American writer E.M. Forster on tourism, cultural politics, and travel writing. It suggests that Forster considered guidebooks as a branch of literature which follows in its laws, the nuances of which received his vigilant attention. One of Forster's novels showed how an initial playfully satirical response to tourism and sightseeing may open the way to more complex cultural inquiry.

Keywords:   tourism, cultural politics, E.M. Forster, guidebook, sightseeing, satire
