Somerset Maugham From a tormented orphan with a clubfoot Philip Carey grows into an impressionable young man with a voracious appetite for adventure and knowledge His cravings take him to Paris at age eighteen to try his hand at art then. I fell in love with this book it spoke to me and I will aways have a strong affection for it After three weeks of opening its pages virtually every night I now find myself saddened that I can no longer turn to it How can anything else compare Of Human Bondage is a classic in every positive sense of the word Aside from The Brothers Karamazov it is the only book I ve read whereupon finishing I was able to say to myself This novel is life itself it contains all of its complexities emotions and meaning Everything that you need to know about life is in this book All that is life is this The main character Philip Carrey who was born with a clubfoot and a taciturn temperment is a different sort of lad yet he manages to be understandable and human He is intelligent and introspective has a strong passion for the arts and adventure and though he s rather introverted even hardheaded at times means well and would do just about anything for his fellow human being Being inside Philip s head and watching the ramifications of his decisions as he grows into a man is at times harrowing other times vitalizing it conjures up many emotions the reader receives a full and enriching experience of a life truly lived Maugham s wikipedia page is slightly critical of his writing stating that he s lost critical acclaim as a great author and that few modern day writers count him as an influence This is sad and upon reading it I was both astounded and appalled because the prose in this novel is exuisite I was constantly swept off my feet by Maugham s ability to display the wretched and beautiful in smoothly written truthful ways But he could not tell what that significance was It was like a message which it was very important for him to receive but it was given him in an unknown tongue and he could not understand He was always seeking for a meaning in life and here it seemed to him that a meaning was offered but it was obscure and vague He was profoundly troubled He saw what looked like the truth as by flashes of lightning on a dark stormy night you might see a mountain range He seemed to see that a man need not leave his life to chance but that his will was powerful he seemed to see that self control might be as passionate and as active as the surrender to passion he seemed to see that the inward life might be as manifold as varied as rich with experience as the life of one who conuered realms and explored unknown landsThis novel had its affect on me for many different reasons but two personal empirical reasons uickly come to mind One is that having had problems myself for a period of time due to a physical deformity of sorts I was able to relate to Philip s embarrasment and resentment of his clubfoot and how it affected his personality and his dealings with others I remember thinking to myself How does Maugham express these emotions so perfectly He must have had a similar experience himself And sure enough I later found through wikipedia heh that Maugham had a very serious stuttering problem that made him a bit of an outcast The other personal empirical reason is that for a period of time while in college I fell hard for a girl that had no interest in me whatsoever I lied to myself that she liked me I kept treating her wonderfully and held onto and practically lived upon her every word Pathetic really very pathetic Philip went through this drastically and with a much colder woman than was my college crush but still it brought back memories and emotions I could empathize I could relate In fact on a number of occasions as Philip was dealing with this I found myself gritting my teeth and wincing Philip Carrey is one of only a few literary characters that I know will stay with me ten years from now he is imprinted within me With all of Philip s difficult experiences and the manifold of deep emotions felt therein Of Human Bondage is the perfect novel with relation to self discovery and growing up In addtion it has all the existentialism philosophical inuiry and ideas of a great Dostoevsky novel The way I felt about this book can in part be articulated from something Philip himself said Partly for pleasure because it s a habit and I m just as uncomfortable if I don t read as if I don t smoke and partly to know myself 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 I ve got out of the book all that s any use to me and I can t get anything if I read it a dozen times You see it seems to me one s like a closed bud and most of what one reads and does has no effect at all but there are certain things that have a peculiar significance for one and they open a petal and the petals open one by one and at last the flower is there I realize that in this uote Philip was speaking of specific parts of books how certain passages and ideas stick with him over time that they can reveal parts of himself and in conjunction with other passages from other books slowly unfold what life to him truly means But you see I feel slightly differently than Philip about this I believe that there are individual novels out there that when taken as a whole can provide the reader with an overall truth about life that goes far beyond any collection of passages from various reads These novels are so rare and special and their affect so profound that one is lucky to come across a few of them in the course of an entire life And this my friends to me was one of those novels

Somerset Maugham Similarities to Maugham’s own life his masterpiece is “not an autobiography” as the author himself once contended “but an autobiographical novel; fact and fiction are inexorably mingled; the emotions are my own?. This book grew on me it sort of seeps into you Maugham is a good story teller and his characters are drawn well It is a story of obsession desire and yearning for something beyond the ordinary run of life The hero Philip Carey is not a conventional hero he has a difficult childhood a club foot which deeply affects him he s awkward and often uncomfortable with people We follow Philip from childhood the death of his parents living with his very religious aunt and uncle boarding school his attempts at jobs Paris trying to be an artist studying medicine poverty and back to medicine Interspersed are friendships relationships with women and especially the intense and doomed relationship with Mildred which dominates the second half of the book The 1934 film had Bette Davis as Mildred wonderful piece of casting There is a slightly awkward ending which I found satisfying and unsatisfying at the same timeSo why did the book strike a chord with me Mainly because I identified so much with Philip Carey I wasn t orphaned but there was the intensely religious upbringing Then importantly there was Philip s club foot which blighted his school days children are cruel I have a disability which affects the way I walk I stand out and made school grim hell Philip used reading to escape as I did and many others do Our career paths were different apart from a period of unemployment but there was a realisation that ultimately the negativity could either destroy one or it could be turned to positivity and empathy for the pain and suffering of others Philip survives and becomes stronger Of course Philip also falls in love with or becomes involved with totally inappropriate women not of course that I ve ever done that HaThere is a redemptive theme running through although Philip loses his religious beliefs This is a powerful novel and is well worth the effort
