One of the great novels of the twentieth century, "Of Human Bondage" tells a fascinating tale of sexual obsession. The story - taking its title from Spinoza's Ethics: "Of human bondage, or the strength of the emotions" - follows Philip Carey in his search for freedom from the strict, oppressive Christian upbringing he suffered as an orphan in an English vicarage. Philip sets out on a journey of discovery that leads him to Heidelberg and to Paris. But it is back in London that Philip's enthrallment with Mildred - the slatternly, pale waitress who makes him a slave to desire - awakens him to the world of obsessive love, deep passion, and true self-discovery. The unforgettable love story is as timeless as it is involving, an intimate tale of human relationships that Theodore Dreiser called "a work of genius." Формат: 10,5 см x 17,5 см.

Reflection through journal writing provides the opportunity for learners to return to their previous learning experience, and self-evaluate their learning capabilities which as a result may increase their self-efficacy.
