After re-reading E.M.Forster's novel, I started contemplating a lot on Adela's character.
I greatly admire her comments dismissing racism and feelings of superiority over the conquered Indians, dismissing the vanity of the other English women, and the attitude of Ronny.
On the other hand, her desicion to accuse Dr. Aziz-even if she withdrew the case, eventually-,is certainly confusing. Do you believe that it was simply because of the famous Echo effect of the Caves, or there could be other motives, like an archetypal fear of the unknown people and an unknown culture? It seems that these "terrors" keep coming back, unfortunately, no matter how educated and free-spirited someone may be.
I would be very interested to read your opinions on the matter.
