From the Back Cover:

A Room With a View portrays the love of a British woman for an expatriate living in Italy, a country which to Forster represents the forces of true passion. Caught up in a world of social snobbery, Forster's heroine, Lucy Honeychurch, finds herself constrained by the claustrophobic influence of her British guardians, who encourage her to take up with a well-connected boor. When she regrets that her hotel room has no view, a member of the lower class offers to trade rooms with her. Lucy becomes caught in a struggle between her own emotions and social conventions. In the end, however, Lucy takes control of her own fate and finds love with a man whose free spirit reminds her of a "room with a view".

There are some writers whose work is especially suitable for out-loud reading and E.M. Forster is one. His voices enter the ear with such a delicate balance of force and refinement that listeners are immediately enchanted.

(Berkeley, CA, U.S.A.)

Book Description Barnes & Noble, New York, NY, 2005. Soft Cover. Condition: New. First Edition, 5th Printing. BRAND NEW copy. First published 1908. Third novel of novelist and literary critic E(dward) M(organ) Forster (1879 - 1970). His writing is noted for convincing evocations of his native England and scenes of his travels to Italy, India, and, in this instance to Alexandria. The book, a love story and a satiric comedy of manners in Edwardian times, relates the consequences of young Lucy Honeychurch and her chaperson's travels to a tempestuous and passionate Italy. Story translated to film, as were other Forster novels including Where Angels Fear to Tred, The Longest Journey, Howard's End, and A Passage to India. His last novel, written in 1914 and published posthumously in 1971, addresses homosexual themes. Seller Inventory # 012851
