About This Book

Volume 357 of the Complete Works of World Literature. A novel by Evelyn Waugh, a major figure in 20th-century British literature. This novel, which is also the original novel for the movie Brideshead Revisited starring Ben Whishaw and Masha Goode, has been reinterpreted many times as a drama and movie since its first publication in 1945, and has become an icon of youthful romanticism and anguish. The romantic friendship between 'I' and Mr. Bathurst and his relationship with his sister Julia, which begins in the forbidding enclave of Oxford, precariously reveals the inner life of a human being who defies the definitions of religion and convention, while at the same time waiting for redemption.

While serving in World War II, Eberlin Waugh conceived of a "now-or-never novel" and was granted a six-month leave of absence to write it. Published in 1945, the novel was an enormous success, posing autobiographical questions about beauty and belonging, dogma and freedom, marriage and love to the postwar literary landscape. Set against the backdrop of the post-World War I economic boom that came and went like fireworks, the novel contrasts the exuberance of young men entering Oxford with the somber recollections of a middle-aged officer reflecting on his service in World War II, and was named one of the Modern Library's 100 Greatest English-language Novels of the 20th Century.
