Liza of Lambeth, W. Somerset Maugham’s first novel, offers insight into the everyday lives of working-class Londoners at the turn of the twentieth century. Liza Kemp is an eighteen-year-old girl working in a factory in the Lambeth slum along London’s Vere Street. As Liza enters into a misguided affair with an older, married man, Jim Blakeston, the novel reveals the tragedies and abuses suffered by those living in poverty. A mood of subdued resignation prevails in this novel, which sparked the literary career of one of England’s most successful authors of the twentieth century.

    " I never thought 128 pages could make me so angry! The dumb acceptance of domestic violence and a 'woman's lot' by the characters and society as a whole is tragic. Married women look down on Liza and all aspire to be married and having loads of children. However we learn that marriage is actually a trap, you are better off alone than being beaten and constantly pregnant! "
