Example text

She relegates all Indians to the servant class. She intends to preserve as much of England in Chandrapore as possible and to allow as little encroachment of India into her society as she can. She is bitterly hostile to Adela after the exoneration of Aziz, not because she necessarily believes him guilty, or really cares what becomes of Adela, but simply because she thinks the English have been betrayed. The other English officials fairly well follow the pattern set by the Turtons. McBryde is somewhat more broad-minded and less conventional than the others, but in the final analysis his attitude is the same as theirs: the Indians are inferior.

Godbole, whose training as a Brahmin has taught him to be detached and indifferent, refuses to be drawn into the controversy and leaves quietly for his new job in an outlying Hindu state. Chapter 22 is essentially Adela’s inner struggle. The reader should note especially the many references to the echo she keeps hearing, which disappears when she suddenly cries that Aziz is innocent. Ronny does his best to convince her that she is mistaken and confused, and that his mother’s defense of Aziz is just as mistaken.
