The original title of the book: William Somerset Maugham: The Man and His Work / Leben Und Werk
Klaus W. Jonas' zweisprachige Ausgabe behandelt die literarische Laufbahn des Schriftstellers W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965), eines der erfolgreichsten und meistgelesenen englischen Dramatiker, Essayisten und Romanciers der ersten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Maugham selbst hat das humorvolle Vorwort in der Form eines Briefes beigesteuert. Eine chronologische Darstellung seines Lebens wird erganzt durch zwei wissenschaftliche Essays des Verfassers zu Maughams umfassendem literarischen Schaffen. Von besonderem Interesse sind die Auszuge aus dem Briefwechsel zwischen Klaus W. Jonas und W. Somerset Maugham, die einen genaueren Einblick in die Personlichkeit des Schriftstellers erlauben und von der engen Vertrautheit der beiden Briefpartner zeugen. Den zweiten Teil der Ausgabe bilden eine ausfuhrliche Bibliographie von Maughams literarischem Schaffen sowie eine Auswahlbibliographie von mehr als 420 kritischen Studien in deutscher, englischer, japanischer, spanischer und franzosischer Sprache. 71 Abbildungen, viele von ihnen bisher unveroffentlicht und aus Privatbesitz, erhohen den dokumentarischen Wert dieses Bandes. In this bilingual edition the author attempts to trace the literary career of William Somerset Maugham (1874-1865), one of the most widely read and performed dramatists, essayists and novelists in English literature in the first half of the twentieth century. Maugham himself has contributed a humorous preface in the form of a letter addressed to the author. The detailed chronology of Maugham's life is being supplemented by two of the author's numerous essays dealing with the stupendous literary oeuvre of this writer. Of special interest are the excerpts from Maugham's letters to his German-born collector and biographer which provide an inside view into his personality and his friendship with Klaus W. Jonas. The second half of this volume contains a bibliographical record of Maugham's life-work and a select bibliography of 420 critical studies in German, English, French, Spanish and Japanese. 71 illustrations, many of which hitherto unpublished and privately owned, enhance the documentary value of this volume.
