  • "Set against the beautiful backdrop of Florence, Italy, during the Edwardian period, young Lucy Honeychurch tours the district with her overbearing, old-fashioned cousin, Charlotte Bartlett. When Lucy meets the eccentric Emerson family, she forms an awkward friendship with their son, George. Through her relationship with the Emersons, and with other tourists, Lucy confronts the strictures of society, and must choose between a life of conformity and one of love. Considered to be author E.M. Forster's most optimistic novel, A Room With a View was written before the First World War redefined British society and loosened many of the constraints of the Edwardian period. The novel is notable for the exploration of sexual and religious freedom, as it captures moments of transition between old ideas and new morals.

Their “room with a view allows them to look into a world far different from their own, a world unconcerned with convention, unfettered by social rituals, and unafraid of emotion. Soon Lucy finds herself bound to an obviously “unsuitable man, the melancholic George Emerson, whose improper advances she dare not publicize. Back home, her friend and mentor Charlotte Bartlett and her mother, try to manipulate her into marriage with the more “appropriate but smotheringly dull Cecil Vyse, whose surname suggests the imprisoning effect he would have on Lucy's spirit. A colorful gallery of characters, including George's riotously funny father, Lucy's sullen brother, the novelist Eleanor Lavish, and the reverend Mr. Beebe, line up on either side, and A Room with a View unfolds as a delightfully satiric comedy of manners and an immensely satisfying love story. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Radhika Jones is a freelance writer and a Ph.D. candidate in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University."

Forster's turn-of-the-century novel contains all the essential elements of a great love story: social comedy, unavoidable mishaps, a beautiful setting, and a young man and woman at crossed purposes. One of the author's lighter, less sardonic novels, A Room with a View features a heroine unique for her time. Overwhelmed by the snobbish advice of her English companions, Lucy Honeychurch must find an anchor of resolve within her own heart if she is ever able to truly love."
