A Room with a View 

E.M. Forster’s 1908 novel, set in England and Italy, is both a romance and comedy of manners that skewers the conformity and rigidity of the Edwardians.  Lucy Honeychurch is betrothed to the pretentious Cyril Vyse, but finds herself drawn to the Emersons, an unconventional father and son, on her holiday in Florence.  Like his forebears Jane Austen and Henry James, Forster described the world around him with precision and insight.
