Publisher's Summary

"A Room with a View" is a novel set in Italy and England, the story is both a romance and a critique of English society. The main themes of this novel include the empowerment of a young Edwardian girl, sensual awakening, the role of institutional religion, growing up and true love. It is written in the third person omniscient, though particular passages are often seen "through the eyes" of a specific character. Forster utilizes many of his trademark techniques, including contrasts between "dynamic" (whose ideas and inner-self develop or change in the plot) and "static" (remain constant) characters.

Lucy personifies the young and impressionable generation emerging during that era, during which women's suffrage would gain strong ground. Forster, manifesting his own hopes for society, ends the book with Lucy having chosen her own path - a free life with the man she loves. The novel could be called a Bildungsroman, as it follows the development of the protagonist.

E. M. Forster (1879-1970) was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is noted for his ironic novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in British society.
