Finkelstein’s analysis of E.M. Forster’s A Room with a View discusses the theme of sexual politics and its association with the Edwardian era. Her book states that the two central issues in A Room with a View are: the acceptance of sexuality and the life of the body, and sexual equality and the role of women in society. Evidence is complied and analyzed by using direct quotations from the book, Forster’s views on humanism and personal philosophies. The society in the Edwardian era cared mostly about trivial things like how everyone must speak tactfully in order to be understood, or what is considered ladylike and unladylike. This book relates the status of women in the Edwardian era to A Room with a View really well and I will use it to show how far women have come today.
Beauman, Nicola. MORGAN a biography of E.M. Forster. Great Britain.: Hodder and Stoughton Ltd,1993
Beauman’s book creates a new connection between A Room with a View and the Edwardian era by noting that E.M. Forster wanted to take a typical marriage plot and turn it into something unconventional. Beauman argues that the main theme of A Room with a View is self-deception. She provides examples from the book and relates it to women of the Edwardian era. Women had to put duty before love and convince themselves that a life of devotion to the home and a passionless marriage is what is best for them. I will take away from this that I should not make unnecessary compromises and deceive myself.
Leavis, F.R. "E.M. Forster." FORSTER Twentieth Century Views. Ed. Malcolm Bradbury. New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, Inc,1966. 34-47.
Leavis’s essay on E.M. Forster addresses the issue of Britain’s rigid class system in the Edwardian era. The upper class never did get to see the "view" that E.M Forster wanted them to see. Lucy Honeychurch was only truly able to see and enjoy the view after she had eloped with George and broken away from that snobby society. He presents research on E.M Forster’s life experiences and analysis of his other books. I will use this information to remind me not to judge a person until I get to know them. First impressions are not always accurate, especially in the Edwardian era and A Room with a View shows that because Lucy becomes different and more tolerant after accepting Mr.

- Popular culture is part of children’s everyday life experiences, embedded in film and news media, cartoons and television programs, in comics, music and advertising (Seiter, 1999; March, 2000 as cited in Ashton, 2005). Yet recognition of popular culture as a valid literacy medium within early childhood contexts continues to be problematic (Ashton, 2005; Shegar & Weninger, 2010; Arthur, 2001). The development of literacy learning begins well before children start school as they engage in literate practices in their homes and communities, allowing them to engage in meaning-making (Arthur, 2001; Ashton, 2005)....

- Practiced by thousands who shared no common tradition or training from the earliest days of taking photos, the first photographers were disciplined and united by no academy or guild, who considered their medium variously as a trade, a science, an art, or an entertainment, and who often were unaware of each other’s work. Exactly as it sounds photography means photo-graphing. The word photography comes from two Greek words, photo, or “light”, and graphos, or drawing and from the start of photography; the history of the aforementioned has been debated....

Brander, Laurence. E.M. FORSTER A Critical Study. London.: Rupert Hart-Davis
Laurence’s book attacks the muddle and the comic shallowness of Edwardian suburbia. He discovers the unfunny truth behind the spirit of Edwardian suburbia. He finds that E.M Forster stands for sympathy and tolerance. The spirit of suburbia would not be able to handle these virtues. In A Room with a View there are too many people with nothing important to do but that was all part of the emptiness and triviality of the Edwardian era. He compares this book with other books by E.M. Forster and takes into consideration the significance of the book regarding the history behind it and what it meant in the time period it was written. I will use Laurence’s ideas to better understand the rules and reasoning of Edwardian suburbia
