9780140182415: 20th Century Brideshead Revisited: The Sacred And Profane Memories Of Captain Charles Ryder (Twentieth Century Classics)

Evelyn Waugh's classic novel retold, and now a major motion picture from Miramax. Academy Award and Tony Award Winner Jeremy Irons--who has starred in films such as Lolita, Die Hard with a Vengeance, and Reversal of Fortune--narrates, invoking memories of his performance in the television miniseries. Irons was nominated at that time for an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe for his role as Charles Ryder.

Review:

A departure from Evelyn Waugh's normally comic theater, Brideshead Revisited concerns the tale of Charles Ryder, a captain in the British Army in post-World War I England. Unlike Waugh's previous narrators, Ryder is an intelligent man, looking back on much of his life from his current post in Oxford. He strikes a special friendship with Lord Sebastian Flyte as the setting moves to the Brideshead estate and a baroque castle that recalls England's prior standing in the world. Ryder falls for Flyte's sister while families, politics and religions collide. What makes the book extraordinary is Waugh's sharp, vivid style and his use of dialect and minor characters. This is one of Waugh's finest accomplishments and a superb book.
