“You told me once that we shall be judged by our intentions, not by our accomplishments. I thought it a grand remark. But we must intend to accomplish - not sit intending on a chair.”

This is the real town that Monteriano, the location for much of the book, was based on. The atmosphere pervades and while Forster is getting his digs in on English society, he skewers the Italians equally. A tragic story, but with moments of comedy, pathos, and philosophy. Highly recommended!

Forster puts some of his most philosophical comments into Caroline Abbott‘s mouth.

In some ways Forster was ahead of his time.

Lunch time read, and next month‘s book club pick. I enjoy Forster, and this one is no exception so far. (My eBook has no cover, so I found this online.)

This is my first time to read a book by EM Forster. Bought at Daunt Books, Marleybone, London. 2018.

This is the story about the English Lilia, who disgraces her former family-in-law by marrying a young Italian without any standing. I read it as a satire, making fun of the English who feel so superior to the Italians and always 'dare to judge but not to rebel'. Because when they realize they're not always right, they don't act on in. #1001books

My handmade, signed Carnevale mask and my favorite of all the photos I took in Venice. Where Angels Fear to Tread take place, in Venice and the characters were #masks during Carnevale... And more metaphorical ones throughout the novel.

Eyelit Very cool! 2y
RealLifeReading Ooh I remember coveting beautiful masks in Venice! 2y
Ubookquitous @RealLifeReading yes, we searched throughout Venice to find someone who made the traditional masks for the big events during Carnevale, not the 90% sold in the typical tourist shops. Far more expensive, but worth it. Someday I want to be in Venice for Carnevale and wear it! 2y
