An William Somerset Maugham Encyclopedia - Samuel J. Rogal
Somerset Maugham was one of the most beloved and succesful UK authors of his age. In a 1962 sale, 35 of his works were auctioned for nearly $1.5 million; the legacies in his will were $280,000; his emoluments in the last ten years of his lifetime were $50,000 per year on average; and his $48,000 Riviera bequest in 1927 was $730,000 in 1967.
It is a guidebook to Maugham's intriguing work. It begins with a brief debate on the meaning of Maugham's biography and work, followed by a comprehensive chronological account of important biographic and literature-anoments. In several hundred alphabetical order the encyclopaedia Maughams dramas, fictions and articles about Maugham, his wife, the people he knew and associated with, the places he used to live and travel to, especially the towns and towns he included in his works, and the historic, culturally, socially and politically questions that determined his own lives and his own careers.
