“The Letter” is a short story published as part of Somerset Maugham’s 1926 collection, The Casuarina Tree. Like many of Maugham’s tales, this fictional story was inspired by a rea life event. Maugham came to know the details of the murder that became the basis for “The Letter” through a Singapore newspaper article published in April 1911. Allowing the reality to gestate in his imagination for the next fifteen years or so produced one of his most often-adapted works of literature.
