CANCELLED William Somerset Maugham's Final Short Stories

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic In this study group, we will discuss the late short stories of William Somerset Maugham (1874–1965), who was a fascinating man and a prolific writer. Born in Paris to British diplomat parents, both of whom died before he was 10, Maugham attended King’s School in Canterbury, then Heidelberg University, and finally earned a medical degree at St. Thomas’s Hospital, London. He worked as a British Secret Service agent in World War I and traveled around the world twice in search of experiences to stimulate his writing. We will explore how Maugham's writing plays, short stories, novels, travel guides, and essays, led him to become the richest author of his generation. We will read and discuss stories from the last years of his career: Collected Short Stories: Volume 4 (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics, 1993). Study group members will lead discussions of stories they select from the text.
