From Kant to Raymond Chandler, from Burke to Augustus Hare - such is the range and diversity of the essays collected in this book. Bringing to literary criticism his mastery of the character sketch, Maugham at the same time underlines those philosophical standards with which readers of his works of non-fiction will be familiar. By the author of Points of View.
