E. M. Forster, A Room with a View, 1908
Italy—with its galleries of Renaissance art and lush, verdant landscapes—inspires protagonist Lucy Honeychurch to move beyond the social constraints imposed upon her by English Edwardian society to find independence and love in this comedy.
Three Zoom call sessions, limited to 12 participants each.
