Mit einem Klumpfuß geboren und einem Sprachfehler behaftet, verliert Philip Carey früh seine Eltern und ist ein gefundenes Fressen für die Hänseleien seiner Mitschüler, gegen die er sich mit Brillanz und Sarkasmus wehrt. Bis er zu sich selbst findet und zur Ruhe kommt, ist es ein schmerzhafter Prozeß, geprägt von der Suche nach der eigenen Berufung ebenso wie von der Sehnsucht nach erfüllter Liebe. W. Somerset Maugham, 1874 (Paris) - 1965 (Nizza); Grandseigneur, Kosmopolit und Globetrotter; unerschöpflicher Schöpfer von 30 Romanen, 200 Geschichten, 25 Komödien, zahlreichen Essays und Erinnerungsbüchern; neunfacher Millionär und neidloser Mäzen junger Schriftsteller - "sein Werk und Leben möge der Literaturgeschichte noch lange Zeit Stoff zum Nachdenken liefern" (Alfred Andersch). Er hat als Geschichtenerzähler seine Lehrmeister Maupassant und Cechov mit den Mitteln des 20. Jahrhunderts fortgesetzt getreu seiner Maxime: "Literatur ist nur dann groß, wenn sie 'jedem' etwas sagt."

This carefully crafted ebook: “Of Human Bondage (Autobiographical Novel)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Of Human Bondage is a novel by W. Somerset Maugham. It is generally agreed to be his masterpiece and to be strongly autobiographical in nature. The Modern Library ranked Of Human Bondage No. 66 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. The book begins with the death of Helen Carey, the mother of nine-year-old Philip Carey. Philip's father Henry had died a few months before, and the orphan Philip, born with a club foot, is sent to live with his Aunt Louisa and Uncle William Carey. Early chapters relate Philip's experience at the vicarage. Louisa tries to be a mother to Philip, but his uncle takes a cold disposition towards him. Philip's uncle has a vast collection of books, and Philip enjoys reading to find ways to escape his mundane existence. Less than a year later, Philip is sent to a boarding school. His uncle and aunt wish for him to eventually attend Oxford. Philip's disability makes it difficult for him to fit in. Philip is informed that he could have earned a scholarship for Oxford, which both his uncle and school headmaster see as a wise course, but Philip insists on going to Germany. In Germany, Philip lives at a boarding house with other foreigners. Philip enjoys his stay in Germany. Philip's guardians decide to take matters into their own hands and they convince him to move to take up an apprenticeship… William Somerset Maugham (1874 – 1965) was a British playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest paid author during the 1930s.

Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms. Believed to be W. Somerset Maugham’s crowning masterpiece, this coming of age story follows the life of Philip Carey, an orphan born with a clubfoot who aches to experience the life and love so carefully starved out of him by his cold, uncompromising uncle, a man whose disdain for Philip is matched by his religious fervor. Spending much of his young life moving from boarding school to boarding school, Philip is an academic success, but his every attempt at lasting friendship ends in painful solitude. As his loneliness ferments into bitterness, Philip boldly casts aside his uncle’s plans for him to become a doctor like the many men in his family. He cannot stand a moment more in a boarding school, and leaves to become an artist. Free for the first time, Philip discovers more about himself than he ever has before. He grapples with his own identity, God, his talent as an artist, and the loneliness that does not leave him even when finally surrounded by people. When he returns to London to finally study medicine, he encounters a brash and bold waitress named Mildred and falls hopelessly in love for the first time. Starved of affection for so long, Mildred is a force that threatens to consume Philip’s entire life. For more classic titles like this, visit www.diversionbooks.com/ebooks/diversion-classics
