u003cpu003eu003ciu003eBrideshead Revisitedu003c/iu003e is Evelyn Waugh's stunning novel of duty and desire set amongst the decadent, faded glory of the English aristocracy in the run-up to the Second World War.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eThe most nostalgic and reflective of Evelyn Waugh's novels, u003ciu003eBrideshead Revisitedu003c/iu003e looks back to the golden age before the Second World War. It tells the story of Charles Ryder's infatuation with the Marchmains and the rapidly disappearing world of privilege they inhabit. Enchanted first by Sebastian Flyte at Oxford, then by his doomed Catholic family, in particular his remote sister, Julia, Charles comes finally to recognise his spiritual and social distance from them.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eEvelyn Waugh (1903-66) was born in Hampstead, second son of Arthur Waugh, publisher and literary critic, and brother of Alec Waugh, the popular novelist. In 1928 he published his first work, a life of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and his first novel, u003ciu003eDecline and Fallu003c/iu003e, which was soon followed by u003ciu003eVile Bodiesu003c/iu003e (1930), u003ciu003eA Handful of Dustu003c/iu003e (1934) and u003ciu003eScoopu003c/iu003e (1938). In 1939 he was commissioned in the Royal Marines and later transferred to the Royal Horse Guards, serving in the Middle East and in Yugoslavia. In 1942 he published u003ciu003ePut Out More Flagsu003c/iu003e and then in 1945 u003ciu003eBrideshead Revisitedu003c/iu003e. u003ciu003eMen at Armsu003c/iu003e (1952) was the first volume of 'The Sword of Honour' trilogy, and won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize; the other volumes, u003ciu003eOfficers and Gentlemenu003c/iu003e and u003ciu003eUnconditional Surrenderu003c/iu003e, followed in 1955 and 1961.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eIf you enjoyed u003ciu003eBrideshead Revisitedu003c/iu003e, you might like Waugh's u003ciu003eVile Bodiesu003c/iu003e, also available in Penguin Classics.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003e'Lush and evocative ...
