    Heartbroken and disillusioned, Kitty decides she has no option but to accompany Walter to the cholera-infested mainland of China. Personification In the cholera-ridden city of Mei-tan-fu, Kitty personifies death by thinking of it as another resident of the city: "Death stood round like a gardener, taking lives like a gardener digging up potatoes" pg. Out of desperation, she married Walter Fane, a scientist, and returned with him to Hong Kong where he conducted his work. However, another interpretation is also possible.

    To me our love was everything and you were my whole life. Kitty shared these social ambitions but Painted Veil book never find the right mate. Charles is polite and distant to Kitty in public, but in private attempts to seduce her once more, and Kitty falls victim to his advances. Maugham himself denied any intention of doing this in a long letter to Walpole: "I certainly never intended Alroy Kear to be a portrait of you. Kitty, however, remains unable to feel attraction towards him as a man and husband. When the guy who has gotten you on board is gone, you're kind of exposed.

    For her part, Kitty, who has never felt real affection for her husband, grasps that, in fact, he is fully aware of her infidelity though he initially refrains from confronting her and she begins to despise his apparent Painted Veil book. She is surprised to find when she returns home that Walter has already had her clothes packed, knowing Townsend would let her down. Despite the extremes of human experience on view, there is a certain blandness to them as they play out, a sensation matched by the eye-catching but picture-postcard-like presentation of the settings. The nun allows Kitty to assist in caring for the older children at the convent, but will not permit her to engage with the sick and dying.

Zak paused a moment to study the concentration of the young drow and also to keep his hands over the coins and ensure that they were brightened enough by the warmth of his body heat for Drizzt to properly see them in their flight. For instance, Kitty primarily values both of them for economic reasons, seeing Painted Veil book as a means of support rather than beloved family members.

It is too impractical for a Painted Veil book with his career he tells her. When she learns that Walter loved babies she cannot fail to recognise what a good husband and father he could have been.

With each hand working independently, Drizzt soon had the coins stacked atop his index fingers, ready to flip. Such basic human emotions are twinned in the hearts of men and women and it doesn't take much to exchange one for the other- or so it is in the world of William Somerset Maugham's imagination.

Their meetings were a source of boredom and irritation. Somerset Maugham. He took a deep breath to steady himself, then snapped the coins up. Metonymy and Synecdoche When Kitty and Charlie hear the noise on the verandah and see the knob turn, they hesitate for several minutes before peeking out to see whether anyone is around - but "There was not a soul [in sight]" pg.

In this regard, Maugham is a first rate author, he keeps you analysing and reassessing every word and act. When the guy who has gotten you on board is gone, you're kind of exposed.
