E. M. Forster's A Room with a View


Often described as E.M. Forster’s most charming novel, A Room with a View has delighted readers ever since it was first published in 1908. Set in Italy and England, it tells the story of Lucy Honeychurch: will she marry the passionate individualist, George Emerson, or the sardonic aesthete, Cecil Vyse? Or will she refuse to marry at all? Forster tells the story of Lucy’s internal struggle with subtlety and irony. The critic Lionel Trilling credits him with “a curiously tough insight” – that “clear ideas are perhaps a sign of ignorance, muddle the sign of true knowledge”.
