Brideshead Revisited
by Evelyn Waugh

351 pages (September 1999)
Little Brown & Co (Pap); ISBN: 0316926345

One of Waugh's most famous books, Brideshead Revisited tells the story of the difficult loves of insular Englishman Charles Ryder, and his peculiarly intense relationship with the wealthy but dysfunctional family that inhabited Brideshead. Taking place in the years after World War II, Brideshead Revisited shows us a part of upper-class English culture that has been disappearing steadily.

Evelyn Waugh's Finest Novel

By JOHN K. HUTCHENS

My theme, says the narrator in Evelyn Waugh's latest, his most carefully written and deeply felt novel, "is memory, that winged host." And, with that, the brightly devastating satirist of England's Twenties and Thirties moves from one world to another and a larger one: from the lunacy of a burlesqued Mayfair, very glib and funny and masking the serious point in farce, to a world in which people credibly think and feel. Whether "Brideshead Revisited" is technically as expert, of its kind, as "Decline and Fall, "Vile Bodies" or "A Handful of Dust" may be debatable. The important point just now that it is bigger and richer, and that--to those of Mr. Waugh's admirers who might recently have suspected he was exhausting a rather limited field--it will almost certainly be his most interesting book in ten years: more interesting in story and in style, and not least in what it implies about its author and his growth as an analyst and an artist.
