A Room with a View (Barnes & Noble Classics) : The Barnes & Noble Classics series offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences - biographical, historical, and literary - to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. A charming tale of the battle between bourgeois repression and radical romanticism, E. M. Forster's third novel has long been the most popular of his early works. A young girl, Lucy Honeychurch, and her chaperone - products of proper Edwardian England - visit a tempestuous, passionate Italy. Their "room with a view" allows them to look into a world different from their own, a world unconcerned with convention, unfettered by social rituals, and unafraid of emotion. Soon Lucy finds herself bound to an obviously unsuitable man, the melancholic George Emerson, whose improper advances she dare not publicize. Back home, her friend and mentor Charlotte Bartlett and her mother, try to manipulate her into marriage with the more appropriate but smotheringly dull Cecil Vyse, whose surname suggests the imprisoning effect he would have on Lucy's spirit.
