This Edwardian social comedy explores love and prim propriety among an eccentric cast of characters assembled in an Italian pensione and in a corner of Surrey, England. A charming young English woman, Lucy Honeychurch, faints into the arms of a fellow Britisher when she witnesses a murder in a Florentine piazza. Attracted to this man, George Emerson--who is entirely unsuitable and whose father just may be a Socialist--Lucy is soon at war with the snobbery of her class and her own conflicting desires. Back in England she is courted by a more acceptable, if stifling, suitor, and soon realizes she must make a startling decision that will decide the course of her future: she is forced to choose between convention and passion.… (plus d'informations)

This has been on my TBR for so long, I think I was expecting a lot more from it. It's kind of like the time I read The Professor, and I was expecting more from a Bronte, but it just wasn't there. I feel like a film version of this would be much more entertaining (I'm sure there is one, but I haven't looked). I might revisit/reread in summer, to see if I enjoy it more the second time. ( )

Lucy, a young English woman, travels to Florence Italy, accompanied by an older cousin. The people she meets there at the Pension Bertolini begin to open her eyes to the ways of the world, including romantic inclinations. A study in the repressed morals of Edwardian England. I ended up liking this novel but not nearly as much as I did Howard's End. ( )

An excellent book in many ways. This seems to have been one of his earlier books, and I have seen the views of some critics who mention that the book is not as sophisticated as his later books, like "Howard's End" and "A Passage to India."

For my part, I enjoyed the book. We all know that E.M. Forster had an almost lyrical style of writing. He could make images dance before your eyes. This is a love story and a gentle satire on English life at the turn of the 19th century.

We lie to ourselves, and then also, to others. We deny our feelings, and often choose, or reject, mates due to social prejudices.

In this case, unlike "A Passage to India", there is redemption and a happy ending to the tale.

Love rules, prejudiced banished. ( )

A Room with a View by E.M. Forster is a 2017 Amazon Classics publication. ( Originally published in 1908)

In the continuing saga of 'taming the TBR' this year, I have found it easier to locate classics that I have been meaning to read for years.

The brevity of this one convinced me to make time for it immediately instead of letting it continue to gather 'virtual' dust on my Kindle.

I had a little trouble with this one- in fact- I almost gave up on it. I was well over halfway into it before I felt engaged in it. By the time I was finished, though, I was glad I stuck with it.

This is a light story, with some dramatics, terrific locales, fantastic characterizations, and a moral that is timeless, but overall, I enjoyed it enough, but it didn't make a lasting impression on me.

E M Forsters romantext präglas av en oerhört njutbar balans mellan utsagt och outsagt, mellan ytlig elegans och underförstådda referenser till en betydligt dunklare verklighet.

"The Signora had no business to do it," said Miss Bartlett, "no business at all. She promised us south rooms with a view close together, instead of which here are north rooms, looking into a courtyard, and a long way apart. Oh, Lucy!"
A Room with a View was published in 1908. (Appendix)

She joined the vast armies of the benighted, who follow neither the heart nor the brain, and march to their destiny by catch-words.
If Miss Honeychurch ever takes to live as she plays [piano], it will be very exciting both for us and for her.
She was like a woman of Leonardo da Vinci, whom we love not so much for herself as for the things that she will not tell us.
There is a certain amount of kindness, just as there is a certain amount of light,” he continued in measured tones. “We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won’t do harm—yes, choose a place where you won’t do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”
It makes a difference, doesn’t it, whether we fence ourselves in, or whether we are fenced out by the barriers of others?
