"Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influencesbiographical, historical, and literaryto enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.A charming tale of the battle between bourgeois repression and radical romanticism, E. M. Forster s third novel has long been the most popular of his early works. A young girl, Lucy Honeychurch, and her chaperonproducts of proper Edwardian Englandvisit a tempestuous, passionate Italy. 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.Radhika Jones is a freelance writer and a Ph.D. candidate in English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University."

Passage to India by E. M. Forster Passage to India, Paperback (August 2015)

When Adela Quested and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, they quickly feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced 'Anglo-Indian' community. Determined to escape the parochial English enclave and explore the 'real India', they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz, a cultivated Indian Muslim.

Alexandria by E. M. Forster Alexandria, Paperback (February 2014)

With a novelist's pen, Forster brings to life the fabled, romantic city of Alexander the Great, capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt, beacon of light and culture symbolised by the Pharos, where the doomed love affair of Antony and Cleopatra was played out and the greatest library the world has ever known was built.

Room with a View by E. M. Forster Room with a View, Paperback (September 2012)

Lucy has her rigid, middle-class life mapped out for her until she visits Florence with her uptight cousin Charlotte, and finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Lucy finds herself torn between the intensity of life in Italy and the repressed morals of Edwardian England, personified in her terminally dull fiance Cecil Vyse.
