Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Waugh tells the story of the Marchmain family. Aristocratic, beautiful and charming, the Marchmains are indeed a symbol of England and her decline in this novel of the upper class of the 1920s and the abdication of responsibility in the 1930s.

Review:
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 before World War II, Brideshead Revisited shows us a part of upper-class English culture that has been disappearing steadily.

Book Description: Back Bay. 1 Paperback(s), 1999. soft. Book Condition: New. (One of the Modern Library's 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century) Often hailed as Evelyn Waugh's finest single novel, and a favorite subject of English filmmakers—never more so than in the dazzling BBC miniseries of the early 1980s—this is an epic tale of a great Catholic family in a doomed aristocratic age, a story of painful sexual awakening, emotional exploration, and spiritual crisis. While attending Oxford, Charles Ryder falls under the enigmatic spell of the Marquis de Marchmain's youngest son, Lord Sebastian Flyte. The young men's romantic friendship blossoms against a setting of wealth and privilege, only to give way to years of torment, as Charles becomes enmeshed in the lives of the Marchmains, including Sebastian's beautiful and married sister, Julia. Named as one of the era's "great masters of English prose" by Time and others, Waugh produced 16 novels, as well as several volumes of short fiction, biography, memoir, and essays; Brideshead Revisited (along with A Handful of Dust and Scoop) was selected by the Modern Library as among the 100 best novels of the 20th century."First and last an enchanting story. Brideshead Revisited has a magic that is rare in current literature. It is a world in itself, and the reader lives in it and is loath to leave it when the last page is turned."—Saturday Review 351.
