Selena Hastings: "The Secret Lives of Somerset Maugham"
 
03:17
I have been a devoted fan of Somerset Maugham's writing since 2003. That was the year when I first set off on my independent travels, and after a few weeks I washed up in Vienna with nothing to read. I found a second-hand bookshop trading in English literature as well as German, and I was captivated by the cover of 'The Razor's Edge'. Since then I've read more books by Somerset Maugham than by any other author, and although I haven't loved each and every one of them, I've always found something valuable withing their pages. This biography by Selena Hastings is a fascinating and insightful examination of the great writer's life. As with all biographies, though, it ends on a sad note, with the author's decrepitude and eventual death making the final chapters a particular struggle for anyone sentimental about Maugham - like me.

Frederic Raphael - Meeting William Somerset Maugham (50/144)
 
03:23
Born in 1931 in America, Frederic Raphael is a writer who has written more than 20 novels, five volumes of short stories and biographies. He also won an Oscar for writing the script to "Darling" and wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed film "Eyes Wide Shut". [Listener: Christopher Sykes] TRANSCRIPT: Maugham was a man, rightly or wrongly, and much more rightly than wrongly, I thought, was the model for being a writer. You took it seriously, you did your work, you made notes, you noticed things, you noticed things, all the time. And you wrote as simply and clearly as you could. So, I went to see old Willie on the bus. 'You should come on a motor bicycle', he said, but I didn't have a motor bicycle, so I went on the bus and went to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and I was met by the second class moto and his secretary, Alan Searle, and I went to the Villa Mauresque, and I've written about this so I won't go on about it now, but he was extremely nice to me. Willie, as you may or may not... people may or may not know, has a rather, I don't know what kind of reputation, erotic reputation for, you know, the way he treated young men when they went to the Villa Mauresque. Well, either I wasn't his type or he doesn't do that all the time. And he didn't, he was actually extremely nice and he gave me tea, although he offered me a cocktail, and he showed me his pictures, and he gave me advice about going to Spain. And when Alan Searle, his secretary about whom bad things have been said in a recent book by a woman called Selina Hastings, who consulted me but didn't give me any credit in her list of acknowledgments, she thinks Alan Searle was a bad man, well he was very nice to me. And Alan Searle said to him, 'How would he get about in Spain?' And Willie said, 'He will take the omnibus'. I've never heard anybody use the word omnibus from that day forward. Anyway, he said, 'But we must give him the name of that man in Madrid. He opens all the doors in Madrid. Give him that name, Alan, and they'll be good for him'. And he loved Spain, old Willie, so eventually he said, 'Shall we... would you like to see the pictures?' In those days, he hadn't yet sold all his pictures, he did that later when they began to steal things on the Riviera, he got very nervous. So he showed me the Monets and the Manets and all that stuff and then we went out into the hall and there was a Picasso and there was a big painting of a man sort of crouched down, and he said, 'Do you know who that picture is by?' Now, I looked at it and a voice in my head said, look at the drawing of a head it looks like Toulouse-Lautrec. But I stumbled, I said, no I don't actually. 'Ah', he said, 'there's only one person who has ever recognised who that was by and that's Kenneth Clarke. It's by Toulouse-Lautrec'. And I said, 'Yes, how nice, excellent – very untypical of him'. Yes, it's untypical. And off I went. That was my visit to Willie Maugham. Actually I had bridge in common with him, because he also played bridge, and I did later in my time organize some bridge games for him with good players in London. So I was able to repay his kindness. And I went on writing my novel until the 'fermeture annuelle' of the little hotel in Juan-les-Pins which came at the... towards the end of October, I suppose.

W Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) - The Relations of Art and Life
 
01:51
This 1960s interview with W Somerset Maugham is somewhat a companion piece to my upload ‘E M Forster Talks About Writing Novels - 'Only Connect’’ in that both writers are talking about the connections of literature and life and what they tried to achieve in their novels. On a personal note, Maugham said of himself in another context: "I was a quarter normal and three-quarters queer, but I tried to persuade myself it was the other way round. That was my greatest mistake." Attracted to both sexes as a young man, Maugham proposed marriage to Sue Jones and was refused. He simultaneously began affaires with Gerald Haxton and Syrie Barnardo Wellcome, who was married at the time to the pharmaceutical magnate. His daughter, Mary Elizabeth Wellcome, was born in 1915. From this point on till an acrimonious divorce in the late 1920s, Maugham mostly travelled the world with Haxton, who had been deported from the UK in 1919 as 'an undesirable alien and a security risk' - code for he had too many indescrete gay relationships. Maugham and Haxton settled at Villa Mauresque, on the French Riviera till the younger man's death from alcoholism in 1944 when the writer took up with Alan Searle. To rush off at another tangent, I’ve loved Maugham’s almost Oscar Wilde-ish Noel Coward-ish humour since I was a child: [1] At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely. [2] Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit. [3] It was such a lovely day I thought it a pity to get up. [4] It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. [5] She had a pretty gift for quotation, which is a serviceable substitute for wit. [6] There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. [7] Tradition is a guide and not a jailer. [8] When you have loved as she has loved, you grow old beautifully. [9] Like all weak men he laid an exaggerated stress on not changing one's mind. [10] Art is merely the refuge which the ingenious have invented, when they were supplied with food and women, to escape the tediousness of life. [11] Follow your inclinations with due regard to the policeman round the corner. [12] Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. And my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it. Enjoy!

07:57:20
William Somerset Maugham CH (/ˈmɔːm/ mawm; 25 January 1874 – 16 December 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.[1] After losing both his parents by the age of 10, Maugham was raised by a paternal uncle who was emotionally cold. Not wanting to become a lawyer like other men in his family, Maugham eventually trained and qualified as a physician. The initial run of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth (1897), sold out so rapidly that Maugham gave up medicine to write full-time. During the First World War, he served with the Red Cross and in the ambulance corps, before being recruited in 1916 into the British Secret Intelligence Service, for which he worked in Switzerland and Russia before the October Revolution of 1917. During and after the war, he travelled in India and Southeast Asia; all of these experiences were reflected in later short stories and novels.

Alan Hollinghurst Interview: The Secret Life of a Poem
 
30:35
An inspiring conversation with the award-winning English novelist Alan Hollinghurst – noted for his novel ‘The Line of Beauty’ – about being a sort of puppet master to his characters and being characterized as “a gay writer.” “I read poetry obsessively all through my adolescence.” Hollinghurst went to boarding school in an old gothic house in the countryside where the lady of the house was a friend of the Victorian poet Tennyson. Tennyson thus came to influence Hollinghurst’s writing a great deal, poetry being the first thing he wrote. With time, however, he turned to novel writing: “The lovely thing about being a novelist is that you’re in charge and you can sort of just put in whatever you like, and I think I have a tendency to indulge my own enthusiasm.” Hollinghurst enjoys playing with narrative and with what one expects – and having the authority to decide his characters’ fate: “I quite enjoy exercising my power to be sort of cruel and restrictive to my characters… and to bring them to horrible ends.” On writing about homosexuality, the English novelist comments that he initially was able to investigate a relatively unexplored area of fiction: “I know when I started, I felt that there was this opportunity to write about a whole area of subject matter, which hadn’t really been looked at in literary fiction.” Moreover, he felt that there was also a political point in doing so, especially as he started out in the mid-1980s, when the AIDS epidemic broke out, and the social and political change during Margaret Thatcher’s government seemed to allow a more hostile attitude towards homosexuals: “There was all the more point in being upfront and out there about all these things.” Alan Hollinghurst (b. 1954) is a British novelist, poet and short story writer, whose works often evolve around (homo)sexual themes. Hollinghurst is the author of the novels ‘The Swimming Pool Library’ (1988), ‘The Folding Star’ (1994), ‘The Spell’ (1998), ‘The Line of Beauty’ (2004) and ‘The Stranger’s Child’ (2011). He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 1989 Somerset Maugham Award, the 1994 James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the 2004 Man Booker Prize (for ‘The Line of Beauty’). He lives in London, England. Alan Hollinghurst was interviewed by Martin Krasnik at the Louisiana Literature festival at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark in August 2012. During the interview Hollinghurst discusses his novel ‘The Stranger’s Child’ (2011).

W. Somerset Maugham - Poor Old Willie - Christopher Hitchens
 
19:23
From Christopher Hitchens audio book Arguably Here is the opening sentence of Anthony Burgess's Earthly Powers (1980)—incidentally, one of the most underrated English novels of the past century: "It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me." One knows at once who is the object of this pastiche. One knows it before "Geoffrey," described tersely as "my Ganymede or male lover as well as my secretary," is further described as responding to the intrusion by "pulling on his overtight summer slacks." Yet one is tempted to continue quoting, about the Mediterranean villa and the goings-on there ("I lay a little while, naked, mottled, sallow, emaciated, smoking a cigarette that should have been postcoital but was not"). This is quite simply because the parody is so much better than anything that W. Somerset Maugham ever wrote himself. Poor old "Willie" was more given to openings like this: "I have never begun a novel with more misgiving. If I call it a novel it is only because I don't know what else to call it."

Healing Trauma Conference Houston Texas August 9-11
 
00:31
http://thewholehouse.net/Prayer_Ministry/CONFERENCE_REGISTRATION.aspx When you think that life will never be the same, it is time for change. That is the message of the Fractured No More . . . Hope is Here conference to be held August 9th through 11th, 2012, in Kingwood, Texas. Featuring international speaker, Sandra Sellmer Kersten, the conference will teach attendees how to break free of and heal from emotional and psychological trauma. Sponsored by The Whole House Ministry, the material is designed for both the individual as well as the caregiver. In a turbulent economy and a society experiencing chaotic change, many have experienced situations that have resulted in emotional, psychological or spiritual trauma. Unresolved, these traumas often later manifest in a physical illness. The 2002 study by Cusanic found that as many as 40 to 50 percent of illnesses were psychosomatic as well as 30 to 40 percent of emergency room cases. The Fractured No More . . . Hope is Here conference will feature international trainer and speaker, Sandra Sellmer Kersten. The New Zealand resident serves as a teacher, speaker, and prayer minister for Elijah House Ministries for more than nine years. Her current focus is spreading the word of hope and educating individuals on how to escape the chains of trauma. While she has shared her teachings in countries across the globe, the Houston conference will be the first time the curriculum has been presented in the U.S. "We are very fortunate to be able to bring Sandra to the Houston area," said Molly McNamara, founder of The Whole House, "There are so many people who have experienced devastating loss which has had an impact on their health and hope. This conference will equip those serving in the medical community as well as Christian ministry with tools needed to achieve true healing." Cutting through the countless pages of theory that expound on the subject of emotional healing, Kersten provides practical steps for recovering from trauma. Attendees will be equipped to identify the many faces of traumatic experiences such as: financial, fear based, betrayal, loss, emotional, neglect, secondary trauma, generational, trauma absorbed in matter, war and genocide. The conference sessions will cover many of these types of trauma, how it affects the sufferer, steps for healing, and practical demonstrations. The Fractured No More . . . Hope is Here conference will be held on August 9th through 12th, 2012, at Calvary Christian Fellowship located at 1365 Northpark Dr. in Kingwood, Texas. The conference will be broken into four sessions: Thursday, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm; Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm; Friday night, 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm; and Saturday, 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. Registration fees are $70 for the full conference including lunch on Friday or $63 for the conference alone. For those unable to attend the full day on Friday, a partial conference registration option is available for $50 including Thursday and Friday evening and Saturday morning. Registration is available online at http://thewholehouse.net/Prayer_Ministry/CONFERENCE_REGISTRATION.aspx. The conference facility is easily accessible from I-59 N and is a ten minute drive from Houston's Intercontinental Airport. For travel, accommodation and shuttle information for the conference or to register by phone, please call (713) 409-2276. About The Whole House Located in Kingwood,Texas, The Whole House was founded by Molly McNamara, a nurse of 33 years with experience in trauma, intensive care and emergency service. McNamara formerly coordinated trauma services for Ben Taub General Hospital, a level-one trauma center. After experiencing her own personal catastrophic losses which includes the suicide of her own son, Molly began her own healing . From her journey from despair to joy and renewal came a purpose and desire to help others experience the same inner healing. The purpose of the ministry is to promote healing, forgiveness, and wholeness which is rooted in the bible and God's love. The ministry provides Christ-centered Elijah House training, seminars, and prayer ministry. For additional information contact Molly McNamara at (713) 409-2276 or [email protected]

He stopped and shook it; the touch of his big, firm fingers made her tremble. His hand was massive and hard as if it were hewn of stone. She looked up at him and smiled. “Isn’t it cold?” she said. It is terrible to be desirous of saying all sorts of passionate things, while convention debars you from any but the most commonplace. (Excerpts from chapter 1.)

Rain by  W Somerset MAUGHAM | FULL Unabridged AudioBook
 
01:44:21
Rain is a 1932 South Seas drama film directed by Lewis Milestone with portions filmed at Santa Catalina Island, California. The film stars Joan Crawford as prostitute Sadie Thompson and features Walter Huston as a conflicted missionary who wants to reform Sadie, but whose own morals start decaying. Crawford was loaned out by MGM to United Artists for this film. The plot of the film is based on the 1923 play Rain by John Colton and Clemence Randolph, which in turn was based on the short story "Miss Thompson" (later retitled "Rain") by W. Somerset Maugham. Actress Jeanne Eagels had played the role on stage. Other movie versions of the story include: a 1928 silent film titled Sadie Thompson starring Gloria Swanson, and the heavily sanitized Miss Sadie Thompson (1953), which starred Rita Hayworth.

Frederic Raphael - How Somerset Maugham has influenced my writin (125/144)
 
04:52
Born in 1931 in America, Frederic Raphael is a writer who has written more than 20 novels, five volumes of short stories and biographies. He also won an Oscar for writing the script to "Darling" and wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed film "Eyes Wide Shut". [Listener: Christopher Sykes] TRANSCRIPT: There's a thing that André Malraux once said – he said a lot of things actually and many of them were slightly dotty and certainly self-advancing to the nth degree, but he was a smart fellow. And one of the things he said... I think it was in that book of his about the imaginary museum which he talked about where each of us has an imaginary museum in which are hung the pieces of work that we admire and somehow have changed our lives, and one could extend that into a library and I will in a minute, perhaps. But... André Malraux said: one doesn't become an artist by looking at life, one becomes an artist by looking at art. And that is both true and a bit untrue in my view because, of course, Malraux was to some extent an ideologically driven person. First of all, by Marxism and the... and the communist party, and then, eventually, by this Gaullist French nationalism, you might say, which also articulated his style. Because of my Anglo-American provenance, I don't feel any specific allegiance to... certainly to national allegiances of any kind. But American writers have influenced me a lot more than, I suspect, English writers have... English writers have been influenced by English writers. However, the main influence, as I've said often enough to be boring, was Somerset Maugham whose 'Of Human Bondage' I picked up when I was 15 and who seemed, as they say, to speak to my case – that's what certain kinds of writers manage to do, whatever your case is. I don't think that Willie Maugham was a great writer, a great writer of English, I mean. In fact, to open one of his books is often to be slightly shocked by the number of clichés and all the rest of it. I think there are reasons for that which is that he was French, his first language was French, and he tended all through his life to think that clichés were in English rather what they are in French, but they're not quite the same. The French use standard phrases to describe standard things because their language is like that. The English, because of the wealth of words and terms available, tend to deprecate the repetition of tired phrases. But Maugham first of all taught me that you... well, a very clever thing he said once about how, if you have to choose between having dinner with a diplomat and a vet, you should have dinner with the vet. The diplomat will tell you the things which you... he thinks you want to hear or what he would like you to believe are typical of him, but the vet will tell you, if you're lucky, one or two very interesting stories because he won't have the wit or the guile to conceal himself. And on the whole, this is a good... good advice. The thing about Willie Maugham is that he is generally deprecated by all the smart, critical folk, and they have good reasons and I've just explained what some of them are. But the odd thing about him is that rare among English writers of his time – that is to say, of the turn of the century and of the 20th century – he doesn't actually have any violent prejudices against anybody. His prejudices are, to some extent, evenly distributed in the tone of his prose, that is to say that he is ironical about many people, including Jews and, of course, the English. He wrote, I think, in the 1890s, when he was a young man: the English abroad imagine that they are... they are admired for their sterling moral qualities. Just wait until they lose their money – that's when they'll find out what people really think of them. And that is, of course, exactly what the English today have absolutely refused to admit about themselves in the world. As Cavafy said to EM Forster, 'Above all, my dear Forster, don't lose your capital'. Well, the English have not lost all their capital but they've lost a lot. And certainly, they lost their capital ships. Nevertheless, they posture about the place as if their opinions matter to people like Master Putin, who actually doesn't give a shit about the English. Willie Maugham taught me to work hard, and also, I suppose, to be a professional. Not only in the vulgar sense that Virginia Woolf attached to him of doing things for money. Because that's what you have to do if you don't have any. Funny that, particularly if you have a family, but also in terms of a certain detachment. And my work, I think, doesn't belong to any particularly national shelf in any particular library, which may be one of the reasons that it makes people rather uneasy. I thought I was just going to be a routine English writer. But when I think of the work, I realise that it doesn't subscribe to any of the usual patterns of English writers...

The Bishop's Apron W. Somerset MAUGHAM audiobook
 
06:35:05
The Bishop's Apron W. Somerset MAUGHAM audiobook The Bishop's Apron W. Somerset MAUGHAM (1874 - 1965) "Canon Spratte saw himself as he thought others might see him: mediocre, pompous, self-assertive, verbose." Maugham could have added ambitious, hypocritical, and vain. In this engrossing social satire, Theodore Spratte, a cleric, motivated by an obsessive desire to be elevated to bishop, embellishes his family history and intrudes upon his son's and daughter's courtships. A reviewer in 1906 wrote, "The whole book is an admirable blend of cynical gaiety and broadly farcical comedy; it is the smartest and most genuinely humorous novel that the season has yet given us." -- Lee Smalley Genre(s): Fictional Biographies & Memoirs Language: English w. somerset maugham the bishop's apron w somerset maugham books william somerset maugham w somerset maugham quotes the luncheon by w. somerset maugham w somerset maugham biography somerset maugham biography somerset maugham books w somerset maugham short stories w somerset maugham novels w somerset maugham bibliography w somerset maugham movies rain w somerset maugham william somerset maugham biography w. somerset maugham theatre maugham somerset somerset maugham works somerset maugham novels books by somerset maugham w somerset maugham works william somerset maugham short stories william maugham somerset maugham the painted veil maugham school world famous books bestselling author the magician w somerset maugham w. somerset maugham bio mr. know all by w. somerset maugham somerset maugham stories w. somerset maugham quote somerset maugham plays moon and sixpence maugham cakes and ale maugham short stories by somerset maugham famous novel writers biography of somerset maugham s. maugham the painted veil somerset maugham maugham w. somerset w. somerset maugham wiki best novel writers maugham william somerset about somerset maugham w somerset author somerset maugham biography somerset maugham somerset maugham short biography william somerset maugham works biography of w somerset maugham catalina w somerset maugham w somerset maugham plays the painted veil novel սոմերսեթ մոեմ سومرست somerset maugham painted veil short stories of somerset maugham somerset morn somerset maughn william somerset maugham books the magician maugham mr. know-all w. somerset maugham w. somerset maugham the painted veil william s. maugham ashenden somerset maugham w somerset maugham rain the painted veil by somerset maugham the luncheon w somerset maugham short stories with author maugham novels maugham rain summerset maugham maugham biography rain maugham 1874-1965 short stories somerset maugham painted veil quotes somerset maugham ashenden moem somerset somerset vaughn rain by w. somerset maugham the painted veil w. somerset maugham somerset maugham best books best selling writers the letter maugham somerset moem books famous novel writer best selling short stories best selling novelist biography of author ashenden maugham best somerset maugham books painted veil somerset maugham the most famous writers liza maugham maugham books biography of english writers somerset author biography of the author ws maugham short stories sommerset maughm somerset maugham complete works the verger w somerset maugham best books by somerset maugham maugham the painted veil somerset books maugham writer the painted veil maugham somerset maugham novel stories with author somerset mau collected stories william somerset maugham maugham stories sumerset maugham biography of william maugham ashenden somerset maugham download w s maugham biography best english novel writers the kite by w.somerset maugham popular british writers maugham cakes and ale painted veil maugham somerset moem short stories maugham works maugham painted veil maugham the moon and sixpence painting veil home by w.somerset maugham biography of writer most famous author in the world popular novelist painted veil novel maugham author author maugham maugham somerset biography maugham the magician author of short stories maugham short stories online most popular british authors famous novel writers in the world maugham moon and sixpence popular novel writers the painted veil author short stories writers in english british novel writers maugham summing up theatre by maugham

He said, "When I read a book, I seem to read it with my eyes only. But now and then I come across a passage, perhaps only a phrase, which has a meaning for me, and it becomes part of me." Maugham's work has certainly become a part of millions of his fans today. To judge by his short story masterpieces, it was in the tiny crevasses and pinched corners of humanity that Maugham illuminated those elemental qualities that were to fascinate him all his life. In fact, the concept of a "normal" person never entered his mind. He claimed such people simply didn't exist. Selections in Volume 3: • Rain, perhaps Maugham's most famous story, follows the efforts of a missionary who tries to reform a wayward woman. • The Luncheon describes the hilarious meeting of an impoverished writer and a friend with an appetite. • Episode is an odd story of what happens when love finally gives out. • The Poet is about a man who, in the midst of breathless anticipation, finally gets to meet the most famous poet in Spain. • A Man with a Conscience tells a convict's story of murder and his lack of remorse. • The Kite is the humorous story of what happens when a woman comes between her man and his passion. • The Back of Beyond explores the volcanic emotions that are aroused when a love that is taken for granted is proven false.

Of Human Bondage (1915) is a novel by W. Somerset Maugham. It is generally agreed to be his masterpiece and to be strongly autobiographical in nature, although Maugham stated, "This is a novel, not an autobiography, though much in it is autobiographical, more is pure invention."[1] Maugham, who had originally planned to call his novel Beauty from Ashes, finally settled on a title taken from a section of Spinoza's Ethics.[2] The Modern Library ranked Of Human Bondage No. 66 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
