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

Famous quotes containing the word view:
“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)
“It is not so much that women have a different point of view in politics as that they give a different emphasis. And this is vastly important, for politics is so largely a matter of emphasis.”
—Crystal Eastman (18811928)
“One of the great penalties those of us who live our lives in full view of the public must pay is the loss of that most cherished birthright of mans privacy.”
—Mary Pickford (18931979)
