Никогда не следует доверять женщине, которая называет вам свой возраст. Женщина способная на такое, способна на всё.

William Somerset Maugham was born Jan. 25, 1874 in Paris (France)
and died Dec. 16, 1965 in Nice.
Maugham's parents died when he was 10. He was brought up by an uncle. Maugham was educated at King's School, Canterbury. After a year at Heidelberg, he entered St. Thomas' medical school in London. In 1897 he graduated and qualified as a doctor.
In 1897 Maughham wrote his first novel, "Liza of Lambeth", covering his experiences as an obstetrician.
The book was a success, which encouraged him to stop his medical practise and to turn to writing.
In 1908 he traveled in Spain and Italy, writing all the time. He achieved his theatrical triumph in London, where four of his play were staged simultaneously. This brought him financial security.
During World War I he worked as a secret agent. After the war he resumed his interrupted travels. He settled down in 1928, when he bought a villa on Cape Ferrat in the south of France. (F)

I also recommend you all to see the movie based on the novel of Somerset Maugham The Painted Veil with Naomi Watts and Edward Norton starring. It's a deeply emotional romantic drama that you will enjoy !!!!!!!!! (Y)

Не понял к чему биография Моэма, хотя его проза просто прелесть, особенно где один брат которому предрекали смерть на обочине от пьянства женился на мульти миллионерше в Лондоне. Мечта любого альфонса.

My favorite English authors are Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, Elithabeth Gaskell, and Charles Dickens.
You can watch full movies of these authors on youtube.com
Jane Eyre (1983) was shown with a big success in Russia. I think it is the best version of the book, which was ecranized numerous times. Unfortinately, Bronte and Austen weren't known by Russian public. I will recomend Elithabeth Gaskell's "North and South". Jane Austen's most known novel was "Pride and Prejiduce". The best version in my opinion was done in 198? with Colin Firth.

Happy Is England

Happy is England! I could be content
To see no other verdure than its own;
To feel no other breezes than are blown
Through its tall woods with high romances blent:
Yet do I sometimes feel a languishment
For skies Italian, and an inward groan
To sit upon an Alp as on a throne,
And half forget what world or worldling meant.
Happy is England, sweet her artless daughters;
Enough their simple loveliness for me,
Enough their whitest arms in silence clinging:
Yet do I often warmly burn to see
Beauties of deeper glance, and hear their singing,
And float with them about the summer waters.
John Keats

WHATRoald DahlSAID... "I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.”
“If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.”

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ROALD DAHL... His appeal to children…
“He speaks to children. He doesn’t speak down to them. He asks them to think, he asks them to be afraid, and he asks them to conquer his fears.”

“The very particular strength of his writing… is that it speaks directly to children. He uses their vision to see things and their expressions to describe them.”

“Dahl books, strong on plot and instilled with a tremendous sense of mischief, insist on seeing the world through children’s eyes, and often portray adults as silly, uncomprehending or insensitive; no wonder kids love them.”

No one could dispute the huge role he played in getting children hooked into reading by offering them the kind of stories they really wanted to read. Stylistically too, he helped new readers by using language simply and accurately. The quality of his writing is easily discernible by the fluency with which it can be read aloud… For many children Roald Dahl is synonymous with reading. He is the one author whose books are currency among children, being passed eagerly from hand to hand as soon as they appear.”
The Independent
“It may well be that (Roald Dahl) is better known than any other English-language author of the second half of this century.”
Independent on Sunday

“No other writer has combined imagination, wit and quirkiness as well as Roald Dahl. His books show great literary skill, blending a vigorous style with a powerful use of language.”

“Roald Dahl was to children’s books what the late, great Jimi Hendrix was to guitar playing: a dazzling beacon that was so far ahead of the rest that none could catch him and few could match.”

I make my diploma thesis on the topic"Victorian Literature"This is the English literature of the 19th century> really like Bronte sisters,Charles Dickens,George Eliot,and many other representatives.I think this is the most amazing literature,and I highly recommend it to you.And I would like to write an idea belonging to George Eliot about jealousy "Jealousy,just like any other vice,needs no motive,but just an opportunity.

04-23-2009, 05:00 AM
I will write some titles that I think are worthy to be read.Jane Eyre,Great expectations,David Copperfield, The picture of Dorian Gray,Vanity Fair,Sense and Sensibility,Oliver Twist,Tess of the D'Urbervilles>These are my favorite,due to the fact I have a great English teacher at my literature department,and I had to study them so to say -by heart :)
