This edition of Forster's classic novel reprints the authoritative text of the 1973 Abinger Edition together with five critical essays.

This book is based on the metaphor or allegory, whatever it is, of the room and its view. The story starts with a couple of English travellers have a muddle over booking a room with a view. A room represents the soul and the view is a perspective or the social political view point of a group. Lucy the protagonist is coming of age and wants her own room with a view. As the story progresses she decides not to follow her birth right, figured in the house called Windy Corner that has a view in Surrey, but almost decides to become like Ms Alans; a new women.

The other major allegory is England and Italy. England figures Victorian prudence, stoic and moral. Italy is romantic, the place where poets such as Shelley frequent, and is about passion and art. These two philosophies compete for the room i.e. soul of Lucy.

Various characters represent humanist philosophy, old religion, and the status quo. These allegories and metaphors are shored up with frequent references to the classic gods. What will ever become of Lucy? The kiss is a poignant symbol and George kisses Lucy in Italy the place of passion and again in prudent England.

This book is subtle and there is allot in the quite nuances. At one point the narration voice speaks to the reader to point out a very subtle hint. I suppose there might even be double entendre common to the petite bourgeois of that class in those days.

Forrester builds a plot about a person of status leaving it to become a new woman; a suffragette and a working girl. This is integral to the authors view point as a member of the Bloomsbury Sect; he is writing a story about the change of society; an end to the Victorian age. But the author himself said that he struggled with the ending and decided to go with a happy ending. I personally found this book an effort to keep attentive. Some might like this book for the romance and others for the literature.
A Room with a View is a great novel that offers insight into society during the early twentieth century. From the beginning of the book, Lucy Honeychurch, the protagonist, is torn between what is socially acceptable. This is illustrated by the love triangle between Lucy, George (her true love), and Cecil (her fiancé). George is of a lower class than her, and yet, he is the one she truly loves. Cecil is her pretentious, upper class fiancé who would rather protect her than be her equal. Will she choose George, whom is of a lower social class than her, or Cecil, the socially acceptable wierdo? The themes of love and social status are forever present in the novel. The book is made even more enjoyable by the dry humor employed by E.M. Forster. He is so serious and sarcastic whenever he makes jokes, it makes the book all the better. I found myself loving the book mainly because of how relatable Lucy is. She is a young women trying to find herself in the midst of social pressures. Overall, I thought the book was amazing and would definitely recommend it.
Good grief, this has been my second and possibly third reading of this work (This is over quite a number of years and my long term memory is beginning to fail me...sigh), and I must say that I enjoyed it as much this go-around as I did the first. There is something about this work that simply appeals to me.
Now this is not to say that it will be on every readers most favored list - no, far from it, and this is how it should be. For me thought it is an excellent read and if I last longer I will most likely read it again on down the road.

This is one of those tales that touches on a wide range of the general overall human condition. It should also ne noted here that the time element covered by this novel is 1908 which is pre WWI and it IS NOT taking place during the `Victorian era' of which several reviewers have stated. No, we are talking the Edwardian era in England and while some of the morals and morays of Victorian times still linger, it is never the less a different age completely. This must be understood to understand the story.

Anyway, back to the subjects covered in this work: Love, prejudices, betrayal, strong but understated humor, a snapshot of a previous era, sociological observation of the English upper middle class and of course the clashes of culture; of the rather painful differences between the perceived social classes in England at that time. It also investigates the dilemma of `self' v/s the expectations of society and family. All in all, if you look at it a certain way, not much has changed over the years and the issues addressed in this classical work are still strongly among us even to this day. It takes a long, long time for attitudes in society to fade. I know in my own case that I was raised very closely to grandparents who were as about as Edwardian as you can get and there is no doubt that their influence had a great deal in molding my personality and attitudes...for better or for worse. (Hey, I am old and yes, I can remember people of that generation quite well).

We have a young lady; a young lady with brains, even though she does not realize it at the time, who is motivated and pulled apart by her true feelings and those feelings that she is either suppose to have or not suppose to have in a number of situations.

Yes, the author has used a number of what we could consider stereotypes of the time but he has used them to good effect and used them to tell his story quite well. While this may bother some folks, I found it to make the overall story more understandable and easier to `go down.'

This work starts in Italy and drifts back to England and again, to understand the story, you have to have some understanding of the cultural gap between England and the continent in those days. Good or bad, it was what it was.

Few will deny that this is a well written work...it may not be to every ones taste, as I have stated, but good is good by most standards. I can get quite lost in the author's narrative prose and descriptive writing.

I was delighted to see that this work is now free via your reading machines...it was about time.

This is another absolute gem from Forster; writing, characters and story extremely good. His common themes of class and love and a changing England get a new layer of scandal and modernity that was simultaneously surprising and absolutely natural. He was able to write in the house as a character in such a way as I was transported and didn't want to leave in a hurry. Beautiful.
