Chapter I: The Bertolini T4i l? E 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! And a Cockney, besides! said Lucy, who had been further saddened by the Signora sunexpected accent. It might be London. She looked at the two rows of English people who were sitting at the table; at the row of white bottles of water and red bottles of wine that ran between the English people; at the portraits of the late Queen and the late Poet Laureate that hung behind the English people, heavily framed; at the notice of the English church (R ev. Cuthbert Eager, M. A. Oxon.), that was the only other decoration of the wall. Charlotte, dont you feel, too, that we might be in London? I can hardly believe that all kinds of other things are just outside. I suppose it is ones being so tired. This meat has surely been used for soup, said Miss Bartlett, laying down her fork. I want so to see the A rno.

Product Description:

A Room with a View is a 1908 novel by English writer E. M. Forster, about a young woman in the repressed culture of Edwardian England. Set in Italy and England, the story is both a romance and a critique of English society at the beginning of the 20th century. Merchant-Ivory produced an award-winning film adaptation in 1985. A Room with a View is Forster's most romantic and optimistic book. He utilizes many of his trademark techniques, including contrasts between "dynamic" and "static" characters. "Dynamic" characters are those whose ideas and inner-self develop or change in the plot, whereas "static" characters remain constant. A Room with a View touches on many issues surrounding society and politics in early 20th century Edwardian culture.
