Q what is the Greek mythological story associated with the title The Lotus Eater’?
Ans. William Somerset Maugham’s compelling short story ‘The Lotus Eater’ paints Thomas Wilson, the pivotal character of the story in minute analyses. A self retired English bank manager, Wilson, made the Italian island Capri his own abode, bidding adieu the life of hardship. Capri was an island of superb sights and sounds so much so that Wilson would enjoy them heartily until the last day of his life. Like the mythical lotus eaters he led the life of oblivion and leisure. In that sense he is a lotos eater.
