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. "
