Reprint. Originally published: London: E. Arnold, 1908.

'You love the boy body and soul, plainly, directly, as he loves you . . .'Lucy has her rigid, middle-class life mapped out for her until she visits Florence with her uptight cousin Charlotte, and finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Her eyes are opened by the unconventional characters she meets at the Pension Pertolini: flamboyant romantic novelist Eleanor Lavish, the Cockney Signora, curious Mr Emerson and, most of all, his passionate son George. Lucy finds herself torn between the intensity of life in Italy and the repressed morals of Victorian England, personified in her terminally dull fiance Cecil Vyse.

Will she ever learn to follow her own heart?A Room with a View is a sunny, brilliantly witty comedy of manners. 'He says, and even more implies, things that no other novelist does, and we can go on reading Forster indefinitely' The Times 'I loved it.

My first intimation of the possibilities of fiction' Zadie Smith
