E. M. Forster''s beloved Italian novels, now in a single hardcover volume.
Forster''s most memorably romantic exploration of the liberating effects of Italy on the English, "A Room with a View" follows the carefully chaperoned Lucy Honeychurch to Florence. There she meets the unconventional George Emerson and finds herself inspired by his refreshingly free spirit-- which puts her in mind of "a room with a view"--to escape the claustrophobic snobbery of her guardians back in England. The wicked tragicomedy "Where Angels Fear to Tread" chronicles a young English widow''s trip to Italy and its messy aftermath. When Lilia Herriton impulsively marries a penniless Italian and then dies in childbirth, her first husband''s family sets out to rescue the child from his "uncivilized" surroundings. But in ways that they can''t possibly imagine, their narrow preconceptions will be upended by the rich and varied charms of Forster''s cherished Italy.

E. M. Forster’s beloved Italian novels, now in a single hardcover volume.

Forster’s most memorably romantic exploration of the liberating effects of Italy on the English, A Room with a View follows the carefully chaperoned Lucy Honeychurch to Florence. There she meets the unconventional George Emerson and finds herself inspired by his refreshingly free spirit— which puts her in mind of “a room with a view”—to escape the claustrophobic snobbery of her guardians back in England. The wicked tragicomedy Where Angels Fear to Tread chronicles a young English widow’s trip to Italy and its messy aftermath. When Lilia Herriton impulsively marries a penniless Italian and then dies in childbirth, her first husband’s family sets out to rescue the child from his “uncivilized” surroundings. But in ways that they can’t possibly imagine, their narrow preconceptions will be upended by the rich and varied charms of Forster’s cherished Italy.
Author Bio
E. M. Forster
E. M. Forster's father died when he was a baby, and he was raised in an English country village by his mother and various female relatives. At Kings College, Cambridge, he discovered his homosexuality and became a member of the Apostles, in which he met Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, and Roger Fry--the foundations of what is known as the Bloomsbury Group, of which Forster also became a member. Thanks to a legacy from a great-aunt, Forster was able to support himself and also to travel widely in Italy, Austria, and Greece--places that would become useful to him as a writer. Between 1903 and 1910 he wrote his four "Edwardian" works--the novels that have gained him wide acclaim as a delineator of English upper-middle-class lives and manners. His 1912 trip to India inspired his masterpiece, A PASSAGE TO INDIA. He stopped writing fiction after World War II (in which he was a prominent pacifist), except for MAURICE, his posthumously published novel that dealt overtly with homosexuality. In addition to his fiction and essays, Forster is also the author of the influential ASPECTS OF THE NOVEL, in which he emphasized the novel's value as a mirror of human experience. Forster became a fellow of King's College and lived there until just before his death of a massive stroke at the age of 81.
