Lled by her awakening conscience to reassess her life and learn how to love The Painted Veil is a beautifully written affirmation of the human capacity to grow to change and to The Mother Zone forgiv. F very lovable I was thankful to be allowed to love you and I was enraptured when now and then thought you were pleased with me or when I noticed in your eyes a gleam of good humoured affection I tried not to bore you with my love I know I couldn t afford to do that and I was always on the lookoutor the The Void first sign that you were impatient with my affection What most husbands expect as a right I was prepared to receive as aavor The implication was that Walter would not kill her as in the Purgatorio of Dante but take her to a region where she might die of a terrible disease By stating the conditions he knew Kitty was to learn a The Poke Cookbook: The Freshest Way to Eat Fish few lessons she would neverorget That was as ar as the plot was based on the ith canto of the Inferno The title was derived The Somme: Heroism and Horror in the First World War from an unfinished sonnet of Shelley Lift not the painted veil which those who live call LifeW Somerset Maugham s story had a twist to it which resulted in Kitty growing up discover the meaning of life and love and repentor everything she did that caused her and everyone around her harm Her greatest victory was to call Charles the most vain and Sicilian Lives fatuous ass that was her bad luck to ever come across But to reach that point she had to learnrom Tattoo a Banana: And Other Ways to Turn Anything and Everything Into Art four French nuns in a conventor orphans what love really meant And she got to know her gentle kind husband who were admired by everyone except her The denouement is not what you think This is a lovestory and not a lovestory It s about love and all its definitions And or me it was a tribute to the role of different kind of men playing a role in a woman s life The ending was sad darnit I was beyond grieving but accepted the realism of it And it was positive uite an unusual story A beautiful one really It had been a long time since I read one of the classics When I saw The Painted Veil on sale at Audiblecom I thought it would be a nice change of pace I wasn t wrong This book proved to be ar better than I expected The Painted Veil is set in England and China taking place in the 1920 s It is a story of love betrayal revenge and redemption I definitely wasn t prepared or some of the twists and turns that this story took but I enjoyed every minuteKitty Fane moved to Hong Kong with her husband Walter An incredibly intelligent man Walter is also socially awkward He loves Kitty but is rather unapproachable and aloof Eventually Walter grew on me but he isn t the type of warm uzzy character that you bond with immediately From the start it is made very clear that he is head over heels in love with his wifeLikewise it is immediately evident that Kitty does not return the sentiment Kitty is beautiful vain and shallower than a kiddie pool While Walter married That's So '90s Pop!: A Fill-In Activity Book for love she makes not ifs ands or buts about theact that she did not It is clear that she married Walter solely so that she would not be one upped by her younger sister s upcoming nuptials In act Kitty seems to loathe Walterat least initiallySo it was no big surprise that Kitty spent her days in the arms of the charming and also married Charles Townsend while Walter was busy at work No doubt the dumb twit was just the most recent in what was bound to be a long line of extramarital conuests or Charles Stupid Kitty believed that he was as in love with her as she was with him Poor oolUnlike his wife Walter has no illusions He knew that Kitty didn t love him the way he loved her but he wanted her so badly that he was willing to marry her anyway He may have known that she didn t love him but he did expect or her to be aithfulWhen he discovers her adultery he gives Kitty an option He will grant her a divorce if Charles will agree in writing to divorce his wife and marry Kitty immediately thereafter Or Kitty can accompany Walter into rural China where he has accepted a job assisting with the medical management of the cholera epidemic Of course Walter already knows exactly how this will work out Kitty seems to be the only one surprised by Charles duplicityI have to say that Walter had a special place in my heart I love stories with darker themes and am drawn to anti heroes There was something so sinister and calculating about Walter that really drew me to him Kitty was right to be afraid of her husband even as she knew that he loved her Walter was kind of a scary guy Arriving in the small village it is immediately apparent that Kitty is being punished or her transgressions Walter keeps her at a distance and is cold at best It becomes clear to Kitty that Walter is seeking revenge using cholera to commit a passive murdersuicide It was sick It was twisted It was goddamn brilliantThe time she spent in the village the Kitty came to see the error of her ways For the irst time Kitty grew to appreciate her husband and even admire him Though she never really ell in love with him she inally felt shame and remorse or her actionsAs much as I disliked shame and remorse or her actionsAs much as I disliked at the onset of this book she grew on me I came to see her as an imperfect human a product of her privileged upbringing and societal expectations Similarly I came to see some of Walter s laws He wasn t entirely a victim as I believed early onI can t say that there is one moral of the story that really stands out to me with the book There were many This book was a beautiful albeit heartbreaking account of the human experienceAlthough this isn t my usual type of story I enjoyed it immensely There were plenty of twists and turns along the way that I didn t see coming Early on I thought I had it all worked out in my head but I was sooo wrong This story did not pan out the way I had envisioned but it was strangely Talking to Dragons fittingor this coupleOverall I thought that this was a wonderful book It isn t a particularly happy or uplifting read but it was great in and of it s own accord This is one "that will definitely hang with me or a while I highly recommend it Resentment s "will definitely hang with me or a while I highly recommend it Resentment s The time will come When you ll be blue Your cheatin heart will tell on youHank Williams 1952 You ll look The Drowning Man

unfaithful then envisions hubs and his lover in bed doing really naughty things and laughing at and ridiculing her visions she projects in her mind s eye each time with sensational new variations daily over the ollowing months so that these scenes transform into a warped and sickening reality to herThe Painted Veil is Somerset Maugham s calamitous case study on the travesties begotten by a aithless heartless wife who is The Lively Art of Writing frankly gullible to the charms of a cocksure cad and indifferent to her caring cuckold s emotional pain and at least atirst to his poisonous resentment The worst the least curable hatred is that which has superseded deep love EuripidesKitty Fane ruthlessly ridicules her husband Dr Walter Fane to her lover as she dreams of marrying this cad she can t see is playing her Though the husband Walter loves Kitty still after he inds out of the affair his jaundiced need to get even goads him into taking her on his mission to rural China into the heart of the cholera epidemic Prior to departing or China he asks her How can I be reasonable To me our love was everything The painted veil is w somerset maugham on speed Veil is W Somerset Maugham on speed Published in 1925 it alls between two masterworks I ve read rom the prolific British novelist and playwright Of Human Bondage in 1915 and The Razor s Edge in 1944 and while Wonderful writing and a good read The Glass Ocean from Maugham I had not read him lately so Iorgot how good a writer he is The basic story is of a beautiful young British woman who has played the ield too long She s now 25 and her plainer younger sister is engaged In desperation the main character marries an MD bacteriologist who takes her to Hong Kong where he works as a scientist Here s a wedding proposal or

Ccompany him to the heart of a cholera epidemic Stripped of the British society of her youth and the small but effective society she ought so hard to attain in Hong Kong she is compe. This was so goodThe Painted Veil irst published in 1925 is now considered a classic That act combined with the cover description and the reviews had me switching into classic reading mode I tend to approach classics with a different Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science (and What I've Learned So Far) frame of mind and a greater toleranceor slow moving plots complex language and characters I cannot relate to that much As it happens I need not have bothered This book hooked me Serenity Role Playing Game from the veryirst page where Kitty is caught in the bedroom with her lover and it kept me interested right the way through From the delving into Kitty s recent past and her mother s insistence that she marry as soon as possible to Kitty s relationship with an intelligent and shy man who genuinely loves her but she cannot love back to the middle of a cholera epidemic that challenges Kitty s views on life and love Her character development is astounding how she goes Save the Cupcake! from being an annoyinglyickle and selfish young women to one who sees the world in a new light and gains a certain wisdom that is only achieved through Tressed to Kill (Southern Beauty Shop, facing and overcoming hardshipMuch about this story reminds me of Gone With the Wind though thankfully not the length It s the same idea of an immature and self centred young woman being unable to appreciate the love of the man by their side until it s too late They would prefer toawn over a married man who will never treat them seriously and yet they are so shocked to discover that their beauty cannot get them everything they want Both Kitty and Scarlet are extremely spoiled and vain so used to getting what they want that they are unprepared when life suddenly treats them unkindly But they do both manage to change and grow stronger as wellIt s also a very sad novel I ind it sad how Walter was willing to overlook the act that Kitty didn t like him at all just so he could have the chance to love her He was so sweet and kind The ending well the bit just before is also sad but necessary in order or Kitty to become the person she doesI think Kitty s state of mind at the end is an important statement about women at this pivotal point in history Women have got the vote but still very ew options in life Here Kitty learns an important lesson that it is The Dancer Who Flew: A Memoir of Rudolf Nureyev far beneficialor everyone if girls are raised to be open minded and independent human beings instead of just men s wives Overall this is a very interesting exploration of people and the relationships between men and women it definitely won t be the last I read by W Somerset MaughamBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube This short masterpiece tells of love betrayal and a search or real meaning in life Kitty is an attractive middle class Brit The only real uture or her is to marry well But when she inds none of her suitors uite up to her hopes and with her younger sister becoming engaged she succumbs to the pressure and agrees to marry Walter a man who adores her but whom she inds boring He takes her with him to Hong Kong where he works as a bacteriologist There is much here about class One hero of the story is mother Superior the head of a corps of nuns dedicated to caring or the sick and the poor She had been brought up in a very wealthy The Gingerbread Man and the Leprechaun Loose at School family in France butound a purpose in life beyond her personal needs So too Walter a shy biologist who risks life and limb to try to stem a cholera epidemic in the interior of China Maugham offers musings on religion without sounding excessively preachy and offers a considered view on what makes life worth living It is a joy to read and to watch as Kitty comes of age learning rom the people she encounters and ultimately sees past the veil of her life to some underlying truth There are also comments here on the nature of westerners doing good in cultures considered lesserWalter s dying words are It was the dog that died This is a reference to the poem An Elegy on the Death of a Mad Dog by Oliver Goldsmith There are various interpretations to be had of the significance of this The poem tells of a man who is bitten by a mad dog Yet it is not the man who dies but the dog In the novel I believe that Walter sees himself as the mad dog who had dragged Kitty into a life threatening situation oreshadowed by Maugham s prologue biting her in a way expecting that it would be a death sentence or her Instead it was Walter who would pass thus the irony Here is a link to the poemThe title offers a nice ield in which one can play the game interpretation The title comes The Cutting Room: A Novel of Suspense from a poem by Shelley Lift Not the Painted Veil Which Those Who Live The notions offered in the novel have a primary source here The Painted Veil is a remarkable golden oldie Published in 1925or the irst time it had slightly different approach to stories in the sense that the author punched a good story into 246 pages and said with his economy of words than 1000 page novels FROM THE BLURB Less known than his masterpiece Of Human Bondage this 1925 Somerset Maugham novel rips at your emotions with its portrayal of an adulterous wife When the bacteriologist husband of Kitty Fane learns of her infidelity he
