Ey are considered weaker sex As the main heroine said I am a woman and defenseless Unlike her parents she couldn t forgive Hans and Germans at all She was not afraid of him simply she hated him and all German people so she hated and her baby too because it was the part of Hans He tried to revenge him to get him feel that she felt And she could do it when she killed the baby which Hans waited and loved Her action showed that she didn t obey Hans and German in generally She left unconuered In conclusion I would like to say that in our society is the same problem Many people think that if they have force money power they can do all what they want The hero of the novel Hans thought so But it isn t so all people receive what they deserveIf you only start to get acuainted with WS Maugham I strongly recommend you to read this novel first I believe that it will not leave you indifferent Sad The review by Valeria Sokolyan 2 B Review of the story by WS Maugham The Unconuered This week I have read the story The Unconuered which was written by the famous English novelist of the 20th century William Somerset MaughamW S Maugham was an English novelist playwright and short story writer whose works are characterized by a clear simple style and a deep understanding of human natureI liked this book very much from the very beginning First of allthere are a lot of characters and we can watch different temperaments of different nations and characters Besides the plot of the story is extremely interesting and intricate It starts with a situation in the house of the farmersIt was the second World War and two nations were fighting between each otherDozens people died andI think it is the worst time which the humanity has ever been feltThe author tells us a story about the family of farmers and angry and merciless GermansIt is a story how one day and one event can change your life foreverThe plot is that the young girl was raped by drunk German by accidentHer name was Annet and his one is HansThe next time Hans visited Annet s family and tried to reclaim a fault because of his actionIt was notso easy because Annet was adamant to Hans entreatiesShe was too proud and I can understand it because she also had a lover whose name was Pierre Gavin and the girl was going to marry himUnfortunatelyhe was killed by enemy soldiersOf courseHans was happy of such news but he did not know what the life would prepared for him and which sufferings the life would bring to himLater Hans realized he had fallen in love with Annet and he decided to tell her about itObviouslyAnnet flung aside all his decisions because she hated himThe main character was uite conscious they would have a happiness with Annet and their little baby but he was mistakenThe story has a lot of thrilling episodes I could not help feeling nervous especially when Hans and his friend forced entrance to the unknown familymade a messraped the young virginal girl and beat elderly peopleTo cut a long story shortHans did not know the exactly data of delivery and when he finally back to the villagemadame Perier told him that Annet gave a birth and it was a boy Hans s heart gave a great leap in his breast He hung his arms round the old woman and kissed madame Perier on both cheeksHe had such a great desire to see his first birthWhen they came into there was no one in the roomLater Annet walked in she was soaked and deathly whiteShe looked at Hans and when he asked the uestion about baby she ust said she took it down to the brook and held it under water till it was deadAt the moment Hans gave a great cry the cry of an animal wounded to deathIn conclusion I would like to say that the story is rather cruelexicitngdepressing but believableI can say she is Nation s PrideI can not imagine how strong she washow many emotions and feelings were inside herTo tell the truth I could not help crying while reading itIt made me sad and I ust retired into myself for some timeBut It is a real life and such tragedy can happenOn the whole the book is good It is worth readingIf you want to know about last century s events and about the strength of womenyou should read it The story Unconuered was written by an outstanding English novelist Somerset Maugham He became known as an author when In 1907 Maugham s first play Lady Frederick was successfully produced The titles of some of Maugham s early novels were familiar to a whole generation of readers Of Human Bondage 1915 The Moon and Sixpence 1919 Ashenden or The British Agent 1938 and Cakes and Ale or The Skeleton in the Cupboard 1930 Productive throughout a long life Maugham is still well regarded for writing his famous short novels where despite the fact all the actions happen in a short period of time and heroes sufferings and thoughts are not described thoroughly readers can still feel the atmosphere of the book and sympathize with different characters or feel happy for them One of such novels is a story Unconuered This story is based on the real historical events of the 2nd World War During these times a lot of people were suffering and the hero of this novel isn t an exception In this short novel the dramatic destiny of the young French woman Annette who was raped by German soldier Hans when he was drunk is told The thing I ve liked the most in this book is Annete s character During the whole story it s shown that she has been strong enough to see every day the person who abused her hear his excuses and declaration of love receive the gifts but still remain adamant in her convictions Even when her parents resigned themselves to that act taking into the account circumstances under which that was produced him Annette still wasn t going to let him off Till the end of the story she didn t resign herself to the conuers and remained faithful both to her motherland France and to herselfThe plot was also developed very interestingly when I got to know that the man has really fell in love with this French woman and it has been so exciting to read about the ways he was going to make her believe in his true feelings But unfortunately everything was in vain as in the book s finale we see that this hero has neither been apologized no given a chance to become a father as Annette decided to kill their childAs for the language of this story Maugham uses short sentences that make the plot vivid and help a reader to get involved in the atmosphere and follow the development of the storyAll in all this amazing story describes the life of people during theWW2 He shows that Europeans were suffering a lot and had to overcome a lot of difficulties and try to remain strong and act sensibly I would highly recommend this book to anyone who desires a real life story and who prefers to read something that force one to think whether the problems he or she has are really serious or they are nothing in comparison with the problems this young French woman and her family had The clue might be in the title Annette is France or broadly all victims of violence Her body is violated her emotions are tampered with she is desperate for food Yet important than her body her health her life itself is her integrity Nothing about her is conuered apart from her body and she is than her body She is unconuered This short story really impressed me William Somerset Maugham was an English playwright novelist and short story writer He was one of the most popular authors of his era and although he did not receive the same critical acclaim as did his modernist contemporaries with their experimental prose styles he was reputedly the highest paid of his profession during the 1930s Maugham s modernism expressed itself not in his literary style but in the themes of his stories which demonstrated the disaffection of his characters with the modern worldThe Unconuered is a short story that was written in 1943 during the Second World War It was included in the 1947 collection of Maugham stories

Recently I have read The Unconuered by W Somerset Maugham I think the author is well known to all of us he is famous for his plays novels and especially short stories But as for me I didn t like this work of his and I want to tell you whyThe action of the story takes place in France during the Second World War Two soldiers lose their way and found themselves on a farm where one of them Hans gets drunk and rapes the farmer s daughter Annette After that Hans starts to visit the farm to show that there is no ill feeling He brings gifts and presents and makes amends with Annette s parents But she despises Hans and refuses to eat anything that the soldier fetches One day Annette tells him that she is pregnant Hans realizes that he loves her and asks her to marry him The woman rejects the soldier She says that she hates him and the child that he has given her and that her country has been defeated but hasn t been conuered When the baby is born Annette escapes from her house and drowns it in a brookTo my mind this is a story about a strong woman But I do not like that she is independent and willful due to her patriotic feelings If a woman gets raped she should not forgive the rapist under any circumstances It doesn t matter whether he is one of the conuers of her country or not It is also not normal for her family to tell her It s not the first time that s happened to a woman and it won t be the last time I did not like all the other characters in the story because the parents only care about their farm and who can help them with running it And I don t believe that Hans s feelings for Annette are sincere it seems for me that he loves only his child I personally think that it is great that the story shows such a strong willed person But it is important for us to remember that such behavior cannot be excused by war or drinking alcohol Even nowadays there are countries where the rapist will not be send to prison if he marries the victim Raping women is eually awful during both war and peaceful time and marriage or gifts don t change that Nevertheless the story doesn t tell us that women shouldn t forgive rapist It shows how great it is to care about your country and be patriotic and that is the reason why I do not recommend it The Unconuered by W Somerset MaughamPublished in House of Books Ltd New York 1943W Maugham is a famous short story writer I suppose almost everyone knows at least one of his works like The Facts of Life The Luncheon The Marriage of Convenience and so on As for me I know a lot of stories of Maugham like this one and I can say that I ve never read the story of his like this before All the stories of W Maugham differ so much from The Unconuered This story is based on real events during the Second World War It s about a young woman named Annette and the soldier Hans It s a very tragic story which takes place in France in the farm near Soissons The unconuered starts with very dramatic scene of the rape of Annette by Hans Afterwards Hans feels guilty about what he s done and goes to their place to give her family some presents and gifts But when he comes Annette look at him with the eyes blazing with anger He sincerely doesn t understand during the whole story why she hates him so much But how can she forgive the rapist So the story develops rapidly and Hand starts to realize that he s fallen in love with Annette but she doesn t ust dislike him but hates him with her whole heart Sooner or later Hans finds out that Annette is pregnant and propose to her but she rejects him yelling The most intriguing fact that her parents don t mind of his proposal and even appreciate it The story ends very tragically Annette kills her son to hurt Hans as much as she can And she did itIn my personal opinion the story is worth to read It naturally shows the events of the Second World War to us for full How people behave in particular situations at that time But I don t actually understand the parents behavior especially How could they forgive the foreign soldier who came to their place raped their daughter and beat the father It s something outstanding for me Of course we didn t live at that time and couldn t understand their way of life but for me it A Love To Remember just can t happen To speak about Annette s behavior I can understand it she wanted to hurt him and she did it in terrible way but she did No one could blame her To be honest when Hans started to understand that he loved her I felt a little bit guilt for Annette s behavior but then I imagined that if I were her I would never forgive him and even committed suicide after the rape immediately so she s very strong willed woman and in some way a role model To sum up the book s worth your attention if you aren t sensitive and susceptible The style of the author is easy to read and the whole story is short so you can read it during the travel the break the lunch and so on The plot is uiet interesting and it ll be absolutely capturing for you The only thing that is unacceptable for me is the relation of Annette s parents to Hans In other aspects this story of W Maugham is one of my favourite since that Of course it doesn t leave positive feelings but it sust severe life which everyone should know and accept Think about it In this review I am going to talk about I can say one of the best novels I have ever read The story is written by a well known writer of the twentieth century William Somerset Maugham His father was lawyer of the British Embassy in France In his childhood he spoke only in French When his parents died he had moved to England in the age of 11 and he learned the English It was difficult times for young Somerset because his uncle who took him for upbringing was cruel man He must also be study at the Royal School of Canterbury where all children teased him for bad English and short stature From everyday stresses Maugham began to stutter So he decided to go to German He studied the literature and philosophy there Later he returned to England The works by WS Maugham are endlessly amaze me His language is remarkable and uneualled I have read a few stories by Maugham but even now I can say that his works are delicate sharp and psychological For this moment The Unconuered impressed me best of all The novel is based on real historical events of the 2nd World War It was terrible period for many countries The main character of the story is a woman called Annette She is an educated and elegant Frenchwoman who is faithful to her convictions and motherland The second character is a German soldier named Hans He embodies the image of invader both aggressive side of the War and human in general He behaves disgraceful and blames confusing hard time and set of circumstances Their paths crossed and left an indelible mark on their hearts The title of the work reflects the character of the heroine and points out to her credo Others may despise me I will never do anything that can make me despise myself A heartbreaking story by Maugham is realistic in its veracity and at the same time tragic in the final The tragedy perfectly reveals the talent of the writer I think that there is no single opinion for the situation It s up to anyone whose side to choose While I was reading the story there were so many thoughts and feelings in my head and heart And when I finished reading the book It took me about two hours to regain consciousness The story impressed me so much Everyone has their own truth As far as I m concerned Annette should be understood and forgiven because hatred destroys anyone There was a difficult situation a terrible act horrible events that led to the irreparable effects I very sympathize with Annette because the War ruined her life To my mind we should not blame the woman for her life is going to be too difficult and painful and she will carry this cross foreverSo in my opinion the author wanted to teach us that women can be strong and brave despite the fact that th.

Of Circumstance The novel under the study is based on real historical events of the Second World War It was terrible period for many countries such as Russia England Poland France and many others The German fought fierce war Hitler wanted to be the leader of whole world The War lasted than 5 years It was the greatest World war on the Earth There were involved many countries about 65 million of people were died so much money was spent many towns and cities were destroyed And it was the only one war where nuclear weapon was usedThe events of this history take place in France Two German soldiers stationed at Soissons ask the way at a nearby farm One of the soldiers named Hans gets drunk hit farm owners and rapes their daughter Annette After a while Hans visits the farm to show there is no ill feeling and brings silk stockings as a gift to Annette but she refuses to accept it He continues to visit whenever he can and bringing much needed food gets on friendly terms with the farmer and his wife Despite this fact Annette treats Hans extremely unkindly even contemptuously Sometimes she ust ignores himOn one visit she tells him she is pregnant After that Hans realizes that he loves Annette and that he is going to marry her and take over the farm The farmer and his wife who have no son to inherit the farm consent to the idea But Annette says I hate him I hate his vanity and arrogance I think I should die happy if I could find a way to wound him as he s wounded me This statement shows the true character of Annette proud and true to her principles We finally have a complete image of this character Unlike their daughter the owners of the farm are not so adamant They don t mind his proposal to their daughter and starts persuading Annette to accept Han s offer They say We ve been defeated and we must accept the conseuences We ve got to make the best arrangement we can with the conuerers But either Hans and the farmers failsSoon after the birth Hans arrives at the farm again He cries in oy Oh my God I m so happy I want to see Annette But neither Annette nor her son are not there The voltage builds up They try to find Annette but she comes herself and she has no one in her hands It turns out that she has drowned the baby in a nearby brook The Annette s deed seems very contradictory She did as she saw fit But was it right From a moral point of view it s terrible wrong cruel and unfair Murder itself is inhumane and the murder of a newborn baby is ust beyond the bounds of my understanding Although from the point of view of principles and especially in the conditions of war everything becomes confused Patriotism love of the homeland and hatred of the enemy directs the actions of Annette and she cannot do anything about it She despises Hans and so she hates his child and will hate him all his life So could she have lived all her life with this hatred This is a difficult uestion Annette act is broken and devastated and I don t think that she will be able to have a normal life Actually none of the characters will The Unconuered touched me to the bottom of my heart In this story Maugham is ruthless heartless and at the same time all so ambiguous Who can decide the fate of a raped woman Only the woman herself Can a woman forgive someone who insulted her It s up to her Anyway this story is outstanding and I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to feel the real power of Maugham s prose The most awful thing that may happen with the humanity is a war It crashes people s fates changes their natures and affects their lives This problem is thoroughly described in the story named The Unconuered written by William Somerset Maugham who is better known as W Somerset Maugham He was a British playwright novelist and short story writer He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest paid author during the 1930sThe story tells us about a period when France was defeated by Germany But this story doesn t deal with the dreadful tragedy of the whole country It is about the misfortune of two particular people One of them is a young woman Annette who was raped by a young drunk german soldier And the second person is the very rapist His name is Hans When he realized what he had done he tried to apologize to Annette to make amends but all his efforts were vain Pregnant with his child Annette took an offence and killed the baby This story is very contradictory Some people would sympathize with Annette others would feel sorry for Hans And some people would also blame Annette others would accuse Hans Personally I think that Annete should have forgiven Hans because I believe that every person makes mistakes And no matter if these mistakes are heavy or not If person repents sincerely in what he has done he deserves forgiveness I think that Annette was a weak arrogant and cruel girl because she couldn t forgive Hans and did a heartbreaking thing she killed her own baby From my point of view only strong people could forgive people even if they did a lot of harm to themTo put it in a nutshell this story is very sad but at the same time incredibly strong and dwells upon a lot of important topics The story under the title Unconuered was written by a gifted English novelist William Somerset Maugham He was born on Jan25 1874 in Paris Somerset Maugham has written 24 plays 19 novels and a large number of short stories The most mature period of his life began in 1915 when he published one of his most popular novels Maugham wants the readers to draw their own conclusion about the characters and events described in his novels The most prominent works by Somerset Maugham are Cakes and Ale Theatre and The Razor s Edge One of the most Maugham s dramatic stories is UnconueredThis novel is about destiny of young French woman Annette who was raped by German soldier Hans when he was drunk Also he beat her parents Sometime later Hans came to home of Annett s parents where she lived He apologized and brought gift for her silk stockings Annette didn t want to see him and said to Hans go away He had gone But through 10 days he came again and brought for Annette and her family packet with product Sooner or later her parents loved Hans But Annette hated him and One time he came again and wanted to talk with Annette she said that she pregnant by him Hans was shocked from that news at that moment he understood that he really fall in love with Annette He asked her to keep the baby he said that he loved her he wanted to marry Annette but she didn t accept him she didn t trust him In day when she had born the baby she ran away from home When Hans and her parents found her she said them that she took baby down in the brook and killed Hans gave a great cry and went out but Annette felt satisfy and victory From my point of view the author wanted to show that women can be strong and brave Annette wasn t afraid of Hans she hated him and all Germans so she hated this baby as well because he was the part of Hans She tried to hurt him as he hurt her And she could do it She left unconuered The plot of the story is very exciting It was so interesting to read about development of relations between Hans and young French lady Unfortunately everything turned very unexpected Hans wasn t given a chance to be happy Annette was adamant Maugham uses short sentences that makes plot vivid he also uses lots of descriptions it helps the reader to enter the spirit of storyTo crown it all I would like to say that this story left mark on my soul On the one hand it shows us a love story without happy end But on the other hand it s about real life during the Second World War About French people who suffered alot but managed to stay strong and free I believe that Annette is a generalized character of all her countrymen I would recommend this book to anyone who is fond of historical and realistic novels It will cut to everyone s hurt and will help to understand people s nature.

William Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874 He spoke French even before he spoke a word of English a fact to which some critics attribute the purity of his style His parents died early and after an unhappy boyhood which he recorded poignantly in Of Human Bondage Maugham became a ualified physician But writing was his true vocation For ten years before his first success he almost l
