W. (William) Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) was an English author, and playwright who was born in Paris as the son of an English lawyer working for the British embassy. His mother died while he was young which had a lasting impact on his life and personality. At the age of 16 W. Somerset Maugham attended Heidelberg University where he studied literature and philosophy. In Heidelberg he met a much older English man with whom he had a homosexual relationship. Upon returning to England he studied medicine at King's College and received a medical degree from the St. Thomas' Hospital in London England. Deciding not to pursue a career in medicine, he focused on writing. The many short stories and books by W. Somerset Maugham contain a unique writing style. His writing style is simple yet it contains a complex and insightful opinion, and narrative. While his masterpiece is Of Human Bondage, a partially autobiographical book, there are numerous other books by W. Somerset Maugham that achieved considerable success.
