The wellsprings of desire and the impediments to love come
brilliantly into focus in Evelyn Waugh's masterpiece-a novel that
immerses us in the glittering and seductive world of English
aristocracy in the waning days of the empire.Through the story of
Charles Ryder's entanglement with the Flytes, a great Catholic
family, Evelyn Waugh charts the passing of the privileged world he
knew in his own youth and vividly recalls the sensuous pleasures
denied him by wartime austerities. At once romantic, sensuous,
comic, and somber, "Brideshead Revisited" transcends Waugh's early
satiric explorations and reveals him to be an elegiac, lyrical
novelist of the utmost feeling and lucidity.
