  • W. Somerset Maugham Gideon den Tex

    William Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874 He spoke French even before he spoke a word of English, a fact to which some critics attribute the purity of his style His parents died early and, after an unhappy boyhood, which he recorded poignantly in Of Human Bondage, Maugham became a qualified physician But writing was his true vocation For ten years before his first success, he almost literally starved while pouring out novels and plays During World War I, Maugham worked for the British Secret Service He travelled all over the world, and made many visits to America After World War II, Maugham made his home in south of France and continued to move between England and Nice till his death in 1965.


  • But where are you? If one stripped you of your exhibitionism, if one took your technique away from you, if one peeled you as one peels an onion of skin after skin of pretence and insincerity, of tags of old parts and shreds of faked emotions, would one come upon a soul at last?Oh Julia, you who live on a stage and we live there with you and your fleeting love (lovers); your complicated, yet undisturbed marriage; your disdain of boredom; your glorious moments in the limelight. All the world revol [...]

  • Middle-brows like to put down Maugham, but smarties know you can't put him down. As the author of hit plays, he knew Ethel Barrymore, Gladys Cooper, among others. The stage is an effective prop as he warmly scopes the psyche of a plummy star (her set: asexual husby and priggy son, lesby backer, shopboy lover and his thespy sweetie -- ah, theatuuh). A sublime 'recognition' scene missing from 2 film versions: bored to hell, star decides to 'give' herself to Devoted Friend. Imagine her shock when s [...]

  • My first introduction to Maugham's work many years ago was with Of Human Bondage and I was so moved by this story of sexual obsession that although the details are fuzzy in my memory, the emotions evoked are still fresh in my mind. I think the ending had me crying for days. In a different way, The Razor's Edge proved itself to be a worthy classic and cemented in my opinion that Maugham is a supreme writer capable of bringing his characters to life with all the pain and passion that love can brin [...]

  • Sotto il vestito, nienteJulia è una attrice, una diva. E' bravissima, è capace di piangere a comando, è in grado di strappare da un copione tutto quello che c'è di più bello, ha una presenza scenica perfetta, sa imparare a memoria un copione in 24 ore. E ricorda alla perfezione citazioni da quasi tutti i brani teatrali che ha interpretato.Ma"La gente credeva che lei recitasse soltanto nelle due o tre ore che era in scena; non sapevano che il personaggio che interpretava la abitava di contin [...]

  • This wonderful novel was published in 1937, when W. Somerset Maugham was already an extremely successful writer – both as a novelist and in the theatre. In fact, much of Maugham’s early success was in the theatre and it was a world he knew extremely well. The heroine of this book is Julia Lambert, an ageing actress whose husband, Michael Gosselyn, manages the Siddons Theatre and her career. They have one son, Roger, and a marriage which is respectable, but passionless. Julia is flattered whe [...]

  • Per chi non lo sapesse, Somerset Maugham è un autore assolutamente delizioso (deliziante, mi verrebbe). Lo è per il tono confidenziale, per l’ironia rarefatta, da alta quota, con cui aggancia il lettore. Poi ha uno stile piano, apparentemente semplice nella costruzione della frase, che è poi la semplicità dell'arte. Nella scelta degli aggettivi non è mai caricaturale, ma nemmeno sbiadito e banale . E’ accurato fino alla pignoleria quando sceglie e arreda il set del racconto.Dove però d [...]

  • ჯულია არის ქალი,რომელსაც ნაკლებად ადარდებს თუ რას ფიქრობენ მასზე,როგორც პიროვნებაზე.საკუთარი რეპუტაცია არ აღელვებდა. თუმცა ტკივილს აყენებდა,როცა ჯულია ლამბერტს -  მსახიობს შეურაცხყოფდნ [...]

  • It's funny how life works out -- I was at the local library, trying to find a book to cheer myself up when lo, I encounter the one author that has never failed me. Like all the other Maugham novels, I had no trouble with the style, voice, plot, characters, or reflections of this story. I don't agree with his take on love, but I understand what he means. I love that reading Maugham's novels is like reading something that I would write for myself. (Somerset Maugham; 300)

  • “The tragedy of life is that sometimes we get what we want.”(This is a good one, about real-life and make-believe and which one is which. Which one is which? And there you have it, Maugham does it again.)

  • "When I've seen you go into an empty room I've sometimes wanted to open the door suddenly, but I've been afraid to in case I found nobody there."That's what Julia Lambert's teenage son tells her. The greatest actress on the London stage, but fast approaching late middle age, her entire life is one grand performance, and she seems to always know what the role calls for. She's the adoring, faithful wife in a sexless marriage to Michael, her stage manager/director husband, who's a former actor of m [...]

  • Maugham non si smentisce mai e questa volta mi ha tenuta incollata alle pagine più che mai.Non adorare Julia Lambert? Praticamente impossibileNon potrete sfuggirle metterà nel sacco anche voi, ha qualche bel trucco appositamente studiato per conquistarvi, provare per credere. ;)

  • Un sublime egoismo salva Julia dalla noia e dalla disperazione. A 40 anni, miglior attrice inglese con l’inglesissimo marito Michael che l’ama a tal punto da preferirla a una partita a golf, conosce l’adorazione di Tom, giovane contabile arrivista con solo l’ardore della gioventù. Per noia ha una relazione con lui che finisce appena Julia si rende conto che Tom in realtà è innamorato di una ben più giovane e sciapa attricetta. I momenti più esilaranti sono quelli in cui Julia è ama [...]

  • After relishing Of Human Bondage, penned 22 years before this and adapted into a career-defining Bette Davis movie, I was surprised on several levels by Theatre, whose 2004 screen adaption scored Annette Bening a Best Actress Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for Being Julia.Firstly, I was surprised by its great readability, of the kind that defies conventional analysis; that literary X-factor distinguishing great writers from good ones, their material striking an artful balance between adequ [...]

  • W. Somerset'as Maugham'as, nors lyg ir labai pakankamai nemažai žinomas ir populiarus, man ilgą laiką buvo visiška paslaptis, apie kurį žinojau tik tiek, kad turi gan keistą vardą ir, kaip galvojau, yra zanūda - nes aš by default taip galvoju apie visus, kurie save vadina pirmo vardo pirma raide ir antruoju vardu, pvz J. Edgar Hoover ir Ai, nesvarbu, ok, užtenka ir Hooverio, kuris buvo zanūdų zanūda ir šiaip nemalonus žmogus. Bet kuriuo atveju, šita knyga man buvo žiauriai mal [...]

  • Театр для меня - священное место, где отдают дань Его Величеству Искусству. Он меня манит, прельщает своими радостями и горестями, которым веришь, и одновременно понимаешь, что это все всего лишь игра, но как актеры это делают, выворачивая души зрителей наизнанку!Я не подозр [...]

  • LOVED this book. It was such a delicious read. And Julia Lambert is a completely unforgettable character. I could have continued reading her story for another 1000 pages. The story follows the rise of a theatre (stage) star - Julia - and is told from her point of view and it's so fun to watch her 'perform' her way through life, through affairs, through motherhood, and watch (sometimes with shock, sometimes with awe) as she manipulates those around her, and the entire time you have this uneasy fe [...]

  • Хороший роман, но не цепляет. Обычно в книге сопереживаешь героям, ставишь себя на их место. А тут - просматриваешь события со стороны, но не погружаешься полностью в книгу. Может быть это потому, что книга не о людях - книга о театре, об актерской игре. Для главной героини теат [...]

  • Maugham rientra in quel gruppo di scrittori che sanno narrare con piacevolezza, un artigiano che non trascura nulla.

  • შეიძლება მთელი სამყარო იყოს თეატრი, მაგრამ "თეატრი" ნამდვილად არ არის მთელი სამყარო.

  • Probabilmente è, tra quelli da me letti fino ad ora, il romanzo di Maugham che più stenta ad ingranare. Per tutta la prima metà del libro mi sono chiesta dove volesse andare a parare l'autore, lo stile che amo era sempre lì ma c'era qualcosa che non mi convinceva del tutto.La vicenda ci è narrata dalla stessa protagonista: Julia è di quelle bellezze particolari, che affascinano un uomo per il portamento elegante e per la personalità stuzzicante piuttosto che per il semplice gusto estetico [...]

  • на самом деле ("Бедный ягнёночек!") рассчитывал, что там будет больше театра. Конкретно в этом случае граница храма с притвором оказалась слишком размытой в силу профессиональной деформации героини. Что до театра, так это чистой воды утопия в масштабах отдельно взятой актри [...]

  • I always love how Somerset Maugham tells a story, and his characters; and being a play write himself this subject matter is his area of expertise. Here Maugham writes the story of Julia Lambert, a woman with so much talent she is one of the greatest actresses England–-she is so good, in fact, that perhaps she never stops acting.Her teenage son tells her, “You see, I’ve lived all my life in an atmosphere of make-believe. You never stop acting. It’s second nature to you. You act when there [...]

  • Il romanzo è ambientato a Londra alla fine degli anni '30.La "Diva Julia" è un'attrice di teatro, bellissima e bravissima, quasi cinquantenne, idolatrata dal pubblico. Con il marito Michael, attore mediocre e agente di Julia, conduce una vita abbastanza apatica ed abitudinaria (tra prove a teatro, riposini pomeridiani, massaggi, rappresentazioni). Julia e Michael hanno anche un figlio adolescente, Roger, che studia al college ed è praticamente assente dalle loro vite.Come un fulmine a ciel se [...]

  • I read this book when I was a teenager, so although I remembered the main thrust of it, I didn't remember the finer details of the novel. Having read it so long ago, it is like a new story to me. I'm enjoying it very much as Somerset Maugham's style is straightforward and entertaining. I know very much more about the theatre now than I did when I was a schoolgirl, so this book is more meaningful to me now than it was all those years ago.23 FebruaryI finished reading the book recently and found i [...]

  • Luin tämän uudestaan monen vuoden jälkeen lukupiiriä varten. Tämän voi lukea huoletta monta kertaa: loistavaa kerrontaa ja henkilöiden kuvausta. Jokaisella lukukerralla kiinnittää huomiota vähän eri asioihin, mutta parasta minun mielestäni kirjassa on ollut naispäähenkilö, jota ei yritetä kouluttaa tai laiteta nöyrtymään, vaan hän saa olla oma kusipäinen itsensä.

  • Един безкраен спектакъл, който така те увлича, че към края почти се объркваш кое е пиесата и кое реалността Но само почти.Гениален майстор на човешките отношения е Моъм и на тяхната проекция в мозъка на хората. Или обратноДа се чете внимателно и да се прилага в everyday life situations! [...]

  • So delightfuld the first book on paper that I have finished in I don't know HOW long. It held my attention the entire time. A humorous and accurate portrayal of theatre people in the 1930s. I love Maugham's genuine writing concerning the human condition.

  • Wonderful. In 1930s England, famous theatre actress Julia Lambert has it all: a successful marriage and career, the love of the public, fame, fortune, you name it. Granted, the marriage is passionless, but they make a good team.Enter a social climbing 23-year-old man who ignites a midlife crisis in Julia as the two embark upon an affair.This is a fantastic book. Julia is an amazing character, and Maugham delivers his usual wit with a fascinating look at aging. I’m consistently amazed at Maugha [...]
