"So, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala didn't approve of the subject-matter of "Maurice". 

Which explains why she did not write the screenplay

I had heard that she felt was wasn't familiar enough with the milieu and so didn't write the screenplay for that reason; also she was involved in another project at the time. But Ivory has said she did give notes.

Kit Hesketh-Harvey (of Kit and the Widow) was better suited to write that particular screenplay.

No matter her reason she made the right choice
