Let her go to Italy! he cried. Let her meddle with what she doesnt understand! Look at this letter! The man who wrote it will marry her, or murder her, or do for her somehow. Hes a bounder, but hes not an English bounder. Hes mysterious and terrible. Hes got a country behind him thats upset people from the beginning of the world. When a young English widow takes off on the grand tour and along the way marries a penniless Italian, her in-laws are not amused. That the marriage should fail and poor Lilia die tragically are only to be expected. But that Lilia should have had a baby -- and that the baby should be raised as an Italian! -- are matters requiring immediate correction by Philip Herriton, his dour sister Harriet, and their well-meaning friend Miss Abbott. In his first novel, E. M. Forster anticipated the themes of cultural collision and the sterility of the English middle class that he would develop in A Room with a View and A Passage to India. Where Angels Fear to Tread is an accomplished, harrowing, and malevolently funny book, in which familiar notions of vice and virtue collapse underfoot and the best intentions go mortally awry.
