حس می کنم کار خوبی کردم که بعد از یک رمان ، یک نمایشنامه هم از موآم خوندم . روند نمایشنامه یک روند خیلی خوب و منطقیه و دغدغههای موآم هم تقریباً داره مشخص میشه . دین ، مذهب ، خدا ، سبک زندگی و مفاهیمی از این دست رو می توان در هر دو کار موآم دید .
با این نمایشنامه بیش از پیش علاقهمند شدم تا " پایبندیهای انسانی " رو هم از موآم بخونم .

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 l
