A view is what can be seen in a range of vision. View may also be used as a synonym of point of view in the first sense. View may also be used figuratively or with special significance—for example, to imply a scenic outlook or significant vantage point:
- The barrier Rhine hath flashed, through battle-smoke,
- On men who gaze heart-smitten by the view,
- As if all Germany had felt the shock!
- - from The Germans on the Heights of Hochheim (1816) by William Wordsworth

—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Currently, U.S. society has been encouraged by its political and subsidized mass-media intelligentsia to view U.S. life as a continual morning in America paradise, where the only social problems occur in the inner cities. Psychologists call this denial.”
—Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
