those days Not only were the schools at least the sort that Charles and Sebastian attended single sex so were the colleges at university The fact that people of their background were invariably packed off to boarding school from the age of 7 or 8 not returning until the holidays created segregation from their parents as well And of course there weren t many scholarship boys to broaden the social

positive light and Waugh himself converted I m not sure whether that reflects a strength or a weakness in Waugh s writingEven so how is this for biting satire when Lady Marchmain is talking to Charles

Now I realize that it is possible for the rich to sin by coveting the privileges of the poor The poor have always been the favourites of God and his saints but I believe that is is one of the special

Evelyn Waugh ´ 1 REVIEW REVIEW Ú SJMEDIA.CO ´ Evelyn Waugh READ & DOWNLOAD Brideshead Revisited The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder The most nostalgic and reflective of Evelyn Waugh's novels Brideshead Revisited looks back to the golden age before the Second World War It tells the stor Please note contains spoilers One s head is rather spinning there are so many terribly good things and likewise so very much abject wretchedness it s hard to begin Let us try1 This book is the twisted story of a homosexual affair which I was truly not expecting it to be It s famously set amongst the upper classes firstly in Oxford so you get pages of blissed out descriptions of life amongst British aristocratic students in the 1920s and how many plovers eggs they eat and which claret they guzzle That part is what I was expecting and very lush and delectable and appalling it is too But what surprised me is that it all takes place within a thick pall of implied and overt homosexuality The two principals of the first half Charles and Sebastian are in love clearly they do everything and go everywhere together And the best character in the whole book is a uentin Crisp style flaming ueer called Anthony Blanche who says things like Good evening Mulcaster old sponge and toady are you lurking amongst the hobbledehoys Have you come to repay me the three hundred francs I lent you for the poor drab you picked up in the casino It was a niggardly sum for her trouble and WHAT a trouble Mulcasterand The gallery after luncheon was so full of absurd women in the sort of hats they should be made to eat that I rested here with Cyril and Tom and these saucy boysAt one point Anthony takes our hero Charles to a gay club which Charles refers to as a pansy bar But here s the thing a this novel is not notorious for its gay subject matter it is true there is no explicit buggery going on but neither is it especially coy As it was published in 1945 when English men were being imprisoned for homosexuality a crime which was only removed from the statutes in 1967 that year of liberation this seems to me very interestingb Nor in the book is there any trace of disapproval anywhere from anyone that homosexuality is wrong The only sin which gets its religious comeuppance is adultery From this book you would get the notion that the upper classes tolerated openly gay relationships in the 1920s and 1930s This is surprising to me It could be something to do with the public school system and the worship of classical Greece It s all very ueer2 This book appears to think its point is a religious one So that the climactic sundering of the lovers in part two is because one of them is a passionate disbeliever and the other one realises that religion by which we mean Catholicism is genuinely important As a confirmed what s God got to do with it agnostic this washes right over my head but leaves me feeling damp and annoyed I trudged through 330 pages for a stupid religious damp suib ending like that Give me my money back In the words of The Shangri Las and that s calledbad3 this book is a love song to wealth and class and as an only slightly reconstructed old class warrior I was sailing on ueasy seas but could not help enjoying Waugh s tremendous atmospheric prose and beautiful dialogue In the words of The Shangri Las and that s calledglad4 This book presents us with one of my least favourite types of characters the doomed agonised male with whom we are supposed to agonise along with and swoon over and indeed love You get this creep popping up all over the place He s there in The English Patient he s there in that stupid movie Damage he s there in Dead Man Walking he s in la Belle dame Sans Merci there s a million of them all doomed all with soulful eyes all suffering In the words of The Shangri Las and that s calledsad5 This book appears to endorse some extraordinary behaviour Charles gets married to someone who turns out not to be his true love at all and has two kids and goes off to paint in Guatemala for 2 years and comes back and his wife asks him to please come and visit his own children which he hasn t seen for 2 years and he regards this reuest as vulgar And he just doesn t see them And no criticism from Waugh either In the words of The Shangri Las and that s calledmadSo ultimately I don t really know what this book was really about but as a portrait of a set of upperclass bastards in England in the 1920s it s almost enthralling Three and a half stars Note Donna Tartt so ripped off part one of this book for The Secret History with her languorous cliues of uber rich students She had of a story going by page 100 I think although that was a slowly crawling overfed turtle of a book too But Evelyn Waugh is just a shade better at writing than our Donna
