Cakes and Ale, or, The Skeleton in the Cupboard 1930 is a novel by the British author W. Somerset Maugham. Maugham exposes the misguided social snobbery levelled at the character Rosie Driffield, whose frankness, honesty, and sexual freedom make her a target of conservative propriety. Her character is treated favourably by the book's narrator, Ashenden, who understands that she was a muse to the many artists who surrounded her, and who himself enjoyed her sexual favours. Cakes and Ale, or, The Skeleton in the Cupboard is a novel by the British author W. Maugham drew his title from the remark of Sir Toby Belch to Malvolio in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night: Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale Late in life, Somerset Maugham claimed that this was the favourite among his novels and it is easy to see why, with its wit and provocative themes handled with consummate skill.

The lively, loving heroine once gave Driffield enough material to last a lifetime, but now her memory casts an embarrissing shadow over his career and respectable image. Title: Cakes and Ale Author: Maugham, W. He was not handsome, but in a manly way agreeable to look at, with wide blue frank eyes and curly hair of a lightish brown his nose was rather short and broad, his chin square. He looked honest, clean, and healthy. He was something of an athlete. Cakes and ale, and other favorites. Item Preview. Maugham, W. Somerset William Somerset, 1874-1965. Publication date. Literatura Inglesa. New York : Pocket Books. Which helps explain why Cakes and Ale radiates happiness. The wonderfully life-affirming characterisation of Rosie is embedded in a beautifully evocative portrait of rural Kentish life, and studded with wickedly satirical portraits of London bookland. And it is cunningly and artfully constructed, with the flashbacks from the various situations in the present giving a pleasing complexity to its structure and to the canny, well-paced unfolding of the narrative. On all levels it is a book to treasure and reread. Related links. Somerset Maughams books. This is nowhere near a complete bibliography. Cakes and Ale, comic novel by W.
