    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Waugh's most deeply felt novel... Brideshead Revisited tells an absorbing story in imaginative terms...Mr. Waugh is very definitely an artist, with something like a genius for precision and clarity not surpassed by any novelist writing in English in his time." ( New York Times)

    Wow, Jeremy Irons is formidable & the story great!

    The story at the end is breath taking and the voice of Jeremy Irons just fitting. Seldomly was so impressed by a speaker and narration. Looking forward to getting to know Waugh even better now.

    Exceptional

    A classic interpreted (again) by a master. Thoroughly enjoyed from afar both in space and time.

    phantastisch gelesen

    Jeremy Irons liest dieses Werk so phantasievoll, dass eine Gesellschaft zum Leben erweckt wird. Die Charaktere bleiben im Gedächtnis da ihnen eine eigene Stimme gegeben wird.
