看得见风景的房间


《看得见风景的房间》是英国作家E·M·福斯特的1908年长篇小说。小说开头,英国主人公露西和她的监护人及表妹夏洛特,壮游意大利佛罗伦萨,因不满意房间风景投诉贝尔托利尼(Pensione Bertolini)公寓。Pension是一种含早餐、午餐、晚餐甚至下午茶的住宿。其住宿及餐饮单独付,住客可选两种套餐:


- Full Pension (全套):住宿、早餐、午餐及晚餐
- Half Pension (半套):住宿、早餐、晚餐(除午餐)


19世纪的露西正在参与当时英国未成年人的旅游风俗,壮游,一个传统及含有教育的欧洲旅程。纽约时报在2008对壮游有以下描述:三百年前,刚从牛津或剑桥大学毕业的富裕、年轻的英国人开始游玩法国、意大利,寻找艺术、文化及西方文明的根源。


虽然地点和时间已改变,露西选择壮游的原因及面对的问题在现代的青岛仍旧存在。她为了寻找壮游(疗养或坐月子服务计划),会选择把住宿和餐饮捆绑。因为南向无障碍海景度假房间的稀缺性,来青岛的旅客仍然普遍投诉客房。当然,与同行的游客产生的友谊及享受新生宝宝带给家庭的喜悦,使住客享受壮游,才是《看得见风景的房间》的中心思想。贝尔托利尼公寓只不过是背景罢了,在小说的附录,乔治二战后回佛罗伦再也找不回贝尔托利尼公寓。


E.M. Forster 1908 novel, A Room with a View opens with the protagonist Lucy Honeychurch and her spinster cousin and chaperone Charlotte Bartlett complaining about Pensione Bertolini, where they are staying in Florence Italy. A pension is a type of guest house that typically offers not only breakfast, but also lunch, dinner and sometimes even tea. Rather than paying for the room and each meal separately, guest select a plan which either comprises


- Full Pension: Accomodation, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner or
- Half Pension: The preceding without lunch


Lucy Honeychurch was undertaking a custom called the Grand Tour, a traditional and education trip of Europe, in the 17th to 19th century. The New York Times in 2008 described the Grand Tour in this way, Three hundred years ago, wealthy young Englishmen began taking a post Oxbridge trek through France and Italy in search of art, culture and the roots of Western civilisation.


Though the location and time period has changed, the rationale and issues faced by Lucy has not changed in modern day Qingdao. The convenience of accomodation and food bundled together when in pursuit of a grander objective, whether the Grand Tour or a Postnatal Care program, still remains attractive. The unhappiness with the provided room view, is still a common complaint in Qingdao where southfacing unobstructed seaview is still in high demand. And finally, a romance or friendship with a fellow boarder or new baby, always add spice to the program and form the main plot of the Novel. The Pension is simply the backdrop and in the appendix, could not be found again by George Emerson despite returning to Florence after World War 2.
