R342 R250 Discovery Miles 2 500 Save R92 (27%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

OF HUMAN BONDAGE is the first and most autobiographical of Maugham's masterpieces. It tells the story of Philip Carey, an orphan eager forlife, love and adventure. After a few months studying in Heidelberg, and a brief spell in Paris as a would-be artists, Philip Settles in London to train as a doctor. And that is where he meets Mildred, the loud but irresistible waitress with whom he plunges into a formative, tortured and masochistic affair which very nearly ruins him. It is inOF HUMAN BONDAGe that the essential themes of autonomy and enslavementwhich dominate so much of Maugham's writing are most profoundly explored.

Catalina (Paperback, New ed): W. Somerset Maugham Catalina (Paperback, New ed)
W. Somerset Maugham
R251 R229 Discovery Miles 2 290 Save R22 (9%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Crippled and disconsolate, sixteen-year-old Catalina is the one person unable to join in the festivities of the Feast of the Assumption. Yet that is when she miraculously meets and talks with the Blessed Virgin as though she were her own mother. But in the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition, the Church is apt to take a serious view of such an ostentatious claim. The last of Maugham's novels, Catalina is a romantic celebration of Spain and a delightfully mischievous satire on absolutism.

W. Somerset Maugham; Read by Michael Page
R228 R212 Discovery Miles 2 120 Save R16 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Great War changed everything and the years following it were tumultuous - most of all for those who lived the war first-hand. Maugham himself is a character in this novel of self-discovery and search for meaning, but the protagonist is a character named Larry. Battered physically and spiritually by the war, Larry's physical wounds heal, but his spirit is changed almost beyond recognition. He leaves his betrothed, the beautiful and devoted Isabel. He studies philosophy and religion in Paris. He lives as a monk. He witnesses the exotic hardships of Spanish life. All of life that he can find - from an Indian Ashrama to labor in a coal mine - becomes Larry's spiritual experiment as he spurns the comfort and privilege of the Roaring '20s. Maugham's theme is the contrast of spiritual content between Larry and the growing materialism and sophistication of those he left behind - and the surprising irony of where both of those paths lead.

The Painted Veil (Paperback): W. Somerset Maugham The Painted Veil (Paperback)
W. Somerset Maugham
R366 R295 Discovery Miles 2 950 Save R71 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Set in England and Hong Kong in the 1920s, The Painted Veil is the story of the beautiful but love-starved Kitty Fane. When her husband discovers her adulterous affair, he forces her to accompany him to the heart of a cholera epidemic. Stripped of the British society of her youth and the small but effective society she fought so hard to attain in Hong Kong, she is compelled by her awakening conscience to reassess her life and learn how to love.
The Painted Veil is a beautifully written affirmation of the human capacity to grow, to change, and to forgive.
