Brideshead Revisited: The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder
Matthew Klobucher's review
Jun 17, 2007
Since I first read it, Evelyn Waugh's masterpiece Brideshead Revisited has unequivocally been my favorite book. It's haunting, melancholy, ironically humorous swan song to all that is elegant and beautiful and pure in this world captivated me. It echoed in eloquent, lucid, and devastatingly satiric paragraphs my firm conviction that true Beauty and Love and even God Himself exist not far beyond the pale glitter of a heartless, selfish, utterly apathetic and drear world. It is an ode to the idealism of youth narrated by the voice of a cynical middle-aged man. It is poetry.
