Last but not least, the mode of publication of such stories confirms the specific relation of such colonial short fictions to history and modernity and justifies their reading alongside modernist works. As reports on national degeneracy appeared daily in English magazines at the beginning of the century, the instability of male and female roles or the depiction of local and national degeneracy in his fiction appeared as popular contributions to a debate that occupied all spheres of English society.

The description is filled with innuendoes and conjures up a phallic evocation. He was tall, six foot two, with long, loose limbs, broad shoulders and narrow hips; there was something charmingly coltish about him, so that you expected him at any moment to break into a caper.

He had brown curly hair with a peculiar shine in it; sometimes when the light caught it, it glittered like gold. It would have been a beautiful skin even for a woman Far Eastern Tales As a consequence, the short stories really kept their special relation to modernity and to the world as long as they were published in magazines.

The ephemeral nature of the support on which they were published made it possible for them to be always reactive to the world and to the thoughts fuelling public debates. Their publication in collections made the same stories less attuned to history and modernity as the process partook more of an authorial desire to leave a trace in literary history rather than an urge, conscious or not, to respond to the pressures of modernity in case of publications in magazines.

Chemmachery 20 Such texts that operated outside the parameters of so called modernist aesthetics were undervalued by literary criticism even though they engaged, at their own level, with formal experimentation or shared thematic and poetic preoccupations with modernist writers. Modernist short story writing cannot be separated from the production of more popular texts, particularly when the latter also experimented with the possibilities of the genre.

The world, perforce, grows older, and we must grow old with it, or lose touch. Kipling has preferred to lose touch. He has clung to crudity and silliness as if they were the Gifts of God instead of the accidents of boyhood.

He has never re-examined the catchwords of school.

Maugham's masterpiece is generally agreed to be Of Human Bondage, a semiautobiographical novel that deals with the life of the main character Philip Carey, who, like Maugham, was orphaned, and brought up by his pious uncle. Philip's clubfoot causes him endless self-consciousness and embarrassment, echoing Maugham's struggles with his stutter and, as his biographer Ted Morgan notes, his homosexuality.

Two of his later novels were based on historical people: The Moon and Sixpence is about the life of Paul Gauguin; and Cakes and Ale contains what were taken as thinly veiled and unflattering characterizations of the authors Thomas Hardy who had died two years previously and Hugh Walpole.

Maugham himself denied any intention of doing this in a long letter to Walpole: He is made up of a dozen people and the greater part of him is myself"—yet in an introduction written for the Modern Library edition of the work, he plainly states that Walpole was the inspiration for Kear while denying that Thomas Hardy was the inspiration for the novelist Driffield.
