“My name is Evelyn Waugh I go to Heath Mount school I am in the Vth form, Our Form Master is Mr Stebbing. We all hate Mr Cooper, our arith master. It is the 7th day of the Winter Term which is my 4th. Today is Sunday so I am not at school. We allways have sausages for breakfast on Sundays I have been watching Lucy fry them they do look funny before their kooked. Daddy is a Publisher he goes to Chapman and Hall office it looks an offely dull plase. I am just going to Church. Alec, my big brother has just gorn to Sherborne. The wind is blowing dreadfuly I am afraid that when I go up to Church I shall be blown away. I was not blown away after all.”

- ‘My History,’ by Evelyn Waugh (aged 7.)

“I went & ordered the plainest little wool dress you ever saw from Dior - 168 pounds. It’s the last time. I humbly asked if they wouldn’t take off the 8 but no they cried you are very lucky. All the prices are going up next week. They made me feel I’d been too clever for words. But after I felt guilty - all the poor people in the world & so on. It’s terrible to love clothes as much as I do.”

- 1951, Nancy Mitford to Evelyn Waugh (via iloveworkdrugs)

One of my favourite moments in the mini-series, and a rare moment where, although the series stray from the book, I love the addition.

I’ve seen many of his paintings sold on auction sites under the name “William Rankin” for some reason.

dear-sebastian:



On today’s installment of The Lissome And The Dead: Hugh Lygon.


Called “the lascivious Mr. Lygon” by Evelyn Waugh, Hugh is remembered as being an endearingly dim bulb who was never on time, who rarely responded to letters, and who “drifted around Oxford like a lost boy, a Peter Pan who refused to grow up.” After his father, threatened with charges of sodomy, was forced to leave Britain, Hugh began a not-so-slow descent into alcoholism, and died at age thirty-two from head injuries sustained while on a motoring tour.


Waugh was magnificently successful in destroying all correspondence between himself and Lygon, leaving the precise nature of their relationship as a topic of rather half-hearted debate. It is certain that Waugh and Lygon became close after meeting through the most flamboyant institution on campus (the Hypocrites’ Club.) A. L. Rowse, Nancy Mitford, and Waugh himself have all intimated, with varying degrees of coyness, that the two slept together. Most tellingly, of course, is the matter of Waugh’s intensely homoerotic novel, whose homoerotic focal point is unambiguously derived from Lygon. So while it is crude to boil a man’s life down to a game of “did they didn’t they,” I personally consider this debate to be exceptionally settled.


All week, I’ve been trying and failing to find more Lygonny sources, and have consequently decided that, if no letters from Hugh are recovered before I die, I’ll just have to convert and personally punch Evelyn Waugh on his ectoplasmic nose.

I've seen both the series and the film(and I like the series best, despite it making me absolutely depressed from time to time), and now I'm about to buy the book. I'm just wondering - which book? The original version or the revised one? I have read your

I like the second edition is better than the first one, mainly because of the additions made by EW to the scene where Charles meets Sebastian after spending an evening with Anthony Blanche, and to the scene with Julia on the ship. There are also a lot of minor differences which I also generally prefer in the second edition.


However, a major arguement for the first edition is that you can read it here for free. If you are unsure, it might be a good idea to start reading the digital copy and see how it goes. You can always switch to a “decent” copy after the prologue. :-)

Who, by the way, was not a lady, but a man.


Seriously, though.


I finished reading Brideshead about two days ago. Overall, I’d give it about a 3.8-3.9 out of five stars. In a lot of ways, it reminded me quite a bit of Atonement by Ian McEwan - another of…
