Reviews for Of Human Bondage
Great expectations and resignation
Phillip Carey is an eternal looser, a young man who wants to be more he is capable of: his greatest failure is in his hope to become an artist in Paris and only by lack of money he starts studying medicine which surprisingly at the end fulfills him and gives him the possibility to survive. Floating around in uncertainty, in trying and letting go he is also disappointed by a common waitress Mildred who never loves him but exploits his feelings and pity to leave him for the first more interesting lover and returns in tears when she has nowhere to go but even his most generous and kind help cannot prevent her from ending in prostitution. The end of the novel shoes that great life plans, hopes and expectations are mostly unreal and resignation is all that remains to grown ups - in finding work, a stable partner and relative calm in a modest life. by Nada BN
