The master, my hero, Evelyn Waugh. Never has a character, such as Sebastian, affected me. Never has a character, such as Charles, taught me that which I fear to be.

"Besides, you see, I am a public school man. That means everything. There is a blessed equity in the English social system", said Grimes," that ensures the public schoolbman agsinst starvation. One goes through four or five years of perfect hell at an age when life is bound to be hell anyway,
and after that the social system never lets one down".
From "Decline and fall" Evelyn Waugh.

When I am Prologue
#waugh #waughofsounds #hitechlolife #changeourways #2019
There's my portrait
It's up on the wall
Right there, that's me drowning
There's a fortress
It's up on the hill
And we can't get in
The waters the rush in
Bathe in rejuvenation
We'll flow with it and release
The walls come in
When I am Prologue
Standing at a precipice
I'm not becoming
No I'll never be coming home
Then I take the seat of sorrow
And die to everything
I die to all of you
Perhaps containing one of the most sadistic denouements in English literature, I recently finished reading A Handful of Dust by Evelyn Waugh - a hilarious look at doomed romanticism and amorality of the upper class Belgravia set durung the inter-great-war years. (Who'd still be interested in the love lives of Chelsea socialites almost 100 years later?!) I remember watching the 80s film version of this about 20 years ago but only remembering the nasty Sir Alec Guinness character - i hadn't appreciated how funny/satirical the story is. Barring some now-highly inappropriate terminology, Waugh's writing is brilliant.
This second-hand Penguin Classic from the 90s also contains an appendix curio - an alternative ending for an American serialisation audience, which strips out the doom-laden South American exploration chapter and replaces that horror show with some cheerierl plot twist. No no no!
Also, a great cover design for this publication. Love it.

An excellent mail day: A Scribbler in Soho: A Celebration of Auberon Waugh, an anthology compiled by Naim Attallah
🌊 Frederick Judd Waugh, “Mid Ocean” (undated)
Waugh was a primarily known as a marine artist, and one of the most accomplished in America. This canvas, along with many others he painted, capture an essence of power and majesty the waves rule that few other marine painters could get across. As this work is undated, the locale is hard to distinguish, other than it being presented as ‘mid-ocean’. Waugh studied the seas on the Island of Sark in the English Channel, but lived much of his life in New Jersey.
"Mi piacerebbe sotterrare qualcosa di prezioso in ogni posto dove sono stato felice e poi, una volta diventato vecchio brutto e povero, potrei sempre tornare a estrarlo e ricordare."
Il giovane Charles Ryder conosce ad Oxford Sebastian Flyte, un ragazzo allegro e vitale, un po' stravagante forse, ma con la straordinaria capacità di farsi benvolere da tutti. Entrando in intimità con Sebastian, Charles scoprirà che l'antica e nobile famiglia da cui l'amico proviene è molto più complessa di quello che lui avrebbe potuto immaginare...
L'amore, l'amicizia, la guerra, la fede: uno straordinario affresco del Novecento inglese, raccontato con humor e malinconia, una storia di anime, di partenze e di ritorni.
