月亮与六便士 | The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham

Based on the life of Paul Gauguin, The Moon and Sixpence is W. Somerset Maugham's ode to the powerful forces behind creative genius.

Charles Strickland is a staid banker, a man of wealth and privilege. He is also a man possessed of an unquenchable desire to create art.

As Strickland pursues his artistic vision, he leaves London for Paris and Tahiti, and in his quest makes sacrifices that leaves the lives of those closest to him in tatters. Through Maugham's sympathetic eye Strickland's tortured and cruel soul becomes a symbol of the blessing and the curse of transcendent artistic genius, and the cost in humans lives it sometimes demands.

书中的主人公“我”是伦敦怀才不遇的作家,偶然间认识了一位证券经纪人,对方在人届中年后突然响应内心的呼唤,离经叛道舍弃一切,先是奔赴巴黎,后又到南太平洋的塔希提岛与土著人一起生活,全身心投入绘画,并在死后声名大噪。“我”在他成名后开始追溯与艺术家曾经的来往与对方之后的人生经历。艺术家的故事以生极落魄、死备哀荣的法国后印象派画家高更的生平为基础。
