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

“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)
“A man assumes that a womans refusal is just part of a game. Or, at any rate, a lot of men assume that. When a man says no, its no. When a woman says no, its yes, or at least maybe. There is even a joke to that effect. And little by little, women begin to believe in this view of themselves.”
—Erica Jong (b. 1942)
