One of the most widely read novels of the 20th century, W. Somerset Maugham´s masterpiece, Of Human Bondage, gives a harrowing depiction of unrequited love. Philip Carey, a sensitive orphan born with a clubfoot, finds himself in desperate need of passion and inspiration. He abandons his studies to travel, first to Heidelberg and then to Paris, where he nurses ambitions of becoming a great artist. Philip´s youthful idealism erodes, however, as he comes face-to-face with his own mediocrity and lack of impact on the world. After returning to London to study medicine, he becomes wildly infatuated with Mildred, a vulgar, tawdry waitress, and begins a doomed love affair that will change the course of his life. First published in 1915, the semi-autobiographical Of Human Bondage combines the values left over from the Victorian era with the prevailing irony and despair of the early 20th century. Unsentimental yet bursting with deep feeling, Of Human Bondage remains Maugham´s most complete statement of the importance of physical and spiritual liberty, a theme that resounds more loudly than ever today. 1.

First published in 1915, Of Human Bondage is widely considered to be Somerset Maugham’s masterpiece and is believed to have been at least partially based on Maugham’s own life. This is the tale of Philip Carey, who is orphaned at a young age and raised by his uncle. Of Human Bondage follows Philip on his travels to Paris, London, and Germany, taking the listener on an adventure of discovery as his travels brings him new discoveries and emotional growth. Philip’s life takes a turn for the worse when he meets Mildred Rogers and begins a destructive relationship that will have lasting consequences. Orphaned at ten years old, W. Somerset Maugham was raised by his paternal uncle who provided little guidance and warmth during his childhood. Instead of going into law like other members of his family, he decided to become an author and was considered to be one of the most successful of his era. 1. Language: English.
