E. M. Forster

A Room with a View

In it we meet young Lucy Honeychurch and her cousin Charlotte Bartlett, who have gone on tour to Italy. During their stay they meet a series of interesting characters, including George Emerson, the son of an eccentric gentleman. The conflict between Lucy’s choice of the unusual George, or the her more conventional English suitor Cecil, forms the crux of Forster’s critique of contemporary English society.
Despite the novel being a societal critique, the prose is light and studded with Forster’s easy witticisms. In 1958 Forster added an appendix elaborating on what occurred to the main characters after the novel’s end: the two world wars figure largely in their futures.

    This book has something in common with Jane Ostin’s Pride and Prejudice. The story isn’t moving or gripping for me but I find it admirable although in my opinion the book hasn’t any beuatiful parts. It is English literature and it isn’t deep and complicated as I thought it should be. I consider this novel light and recommend it for easy-reading.
