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.… (lisätietoja)

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.

In the first ten pages, Forster introduces us to everyone (almost) we need to know, and everything we need to know about them, at a dingy pensione dining table in Florence. Two ladies: one young, naive, impulsive, in company with her chaperone, an older, fussy, poorer cousin. An older man - a freethinker, also impulsive, generous, and utterly heedless of decorum, and his son, silent, brooding, and lacking in social skills. A bluestocking "lady novelist," constantly deriding mere "tourists" and annoying most everyone. And an easy-going, well-intentioned bachelor clergyman. Forster's economy is breathtaking: characters emerge through what they say, how they say it, and how the first two ladies respond to them, in a piddling discussion of room placement fraught with unintended meanings, offense and puzzlement. The descriptions are wry and sharp; authorial comments skim through like blades, and you might think you were reading Austen - a sly, precise wit, drawing blood without you noticing you've been cut. Surely, Patrick Hamilton knew this novel. I wonder.

Described as a "comedy of manners," "sunny," "lighthearted..." Well, yes, often. But also something very warm-blooded, earnest, and poignant. Young Lucy, ardent, enthusiastic, but unconfident, knowing she wants something more but not sure what it is or if it's all right to do so, stumbles into a dazzling spread of blue flowers on a Tuscan hillside, where "violets ran down in rivulets and streams and cataracts, irrigating the hillside with blue, eddying round the tree stems collecting into pools in the hollows, covering the grass with spots of azure foam." And the affable clergyman remarks later that it was in Italy that she evinced "the sense that she had found wings, and meant to use them." There begin the complications, and an ill-advised engagement between Lucy and the chilly snob Cecil. But even Cecil is no cartoon: he is difficult, ignorant, overbearing, and... he can't help who he is, and is at his best when vanquished.

A marvelous exploration of men and women, their foibles and strengths, their comedies and tragedies, taking their weak and noble ways through a beautiful, complicated world.

As I read this book, I was thinking this was about to become one of my favourite books of all time. Not only the story, but also Forster’s world view, his defense of loving and accepting others as they are and the search for authenticity. I gained real affection for the characters and had immense pleasure seeing Lucie grow up, and all the other character arcs as well. The author was able to insert so much richness, depth and sense of humour in a book that is short and simply written. However, I wish Forster had never written the annex. If you have not read the annex, I would advise you not to read it, and do NOT expand the section of my review that has spoilers. The author first wrote this novel when he was 29, and then he wrote the annex decades later, when he probably was a bitter old man, he might just as well have been a different person. It all fell into the pieces once I read the annex, as it broke my heart to learn that George was unfaithful. I was not expecting a fairy tale ending for the characters, but there was no need for Forster to do this, and I don’t think it is coherent with George’s character anyway. The annex made me feel genuinely sad for the rest of the day. Forster should have left the story alone, and we could imagine for ourselves the adventures and difficulties that the characters would find, as they lived through the events of the 20th century. ( )

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.

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?
