Where angels fear to tread

A young English widow takes off for Italy to get away from her in-laws. When she marries a penniless Italian her in-laws are not amused. That the marriage should fail and poor Lilia die tragically are only to be expected. But that Lilia should have had a baby -- and that the baby should be raised as an Italian! -- are matters requiring immediate correction. In his first novel, E.M. Forster anticipated the themes of cultural collision and the sterility of the English middle class that he would later develop in A Room with a View and A Passage to India.
