A Reader's Guide to Evelyn Waugh & 'Brideshead Revisited'
- Customer Reviews (0)
Did you read Brideshead Revisited before the fabulous TV series of 1981, or afterwards with images of Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews indelibly in your mind? It is considered one of the greatest TV series ever made, and of course, the book is just wonderful too.
Like so many viewers, I was seduced by the 1981 TV adaptation and went on from that to read the novel for the first time. In it, I discovered a rich evocation of a bygone age, a lavish tribute to the glories of Oxford and the beauties of Venice, and an intriguing portrait of an English country estate. I also found a fascinating range of characters as I followed Charles Ryder pursuing friendship and love. Like Charles, I was seduced by Brideshead’s beauty and inhabitants.
Learn more about Evelyn Waugh's life and work, the actual house which was the model for Brideshead (no, not Castle Howard), the themes, styles and characters in the book, and perhaps enjoy sharing discussion questions with your book group. My Reader’s Guide has all this and more about this evocative and memorable novel.
