Somerset Maugham&&L/B&&R''s masterpiece &&LI&&ROf Human Bondage&&L/I&&R 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.&&LBR&&R &&LBR&&RFirst published in 1915, the semi-autobiographical &&LI&&ROf Human Bondage&&L/I&&R combines the values left over from the Victorian era with the prevailing irony and despair of the early twentieth century. Unsentimental yet bursting with deep feeling, &&LI&&ROf Human Bondage&&L/I&&R remains Maugham''s most complete statement of the importance of physical and spiritual liberty, a theme that resounds more loudly than ever today.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RCarin Companick &&L/B&&Ris a freelance writer and a specialist in the field of language proficiency assessment.
