Another Beaton portrait and another favourite author. I do, however, have a terrible confession to make...I have never read Brideshead. I've read everything else - Scoop, A Handful of Dust and The Sword of Honour trilogy are particular favourites. I was introduced to Waugh around the time Brideshead was first televised and so, being something of a contrarian, I stubbornly refused to read it. No time like the present, I suppose. #cecilbeaton #evelynwaugh #writer #blackandwhitephotography #cigar

#BrightYoungThings #SheilaChisholm (1895-1969) (colour photograph) as Queen of the Amazons (Penthesilea) by #MadameYevonde, 1935; ▫️ Madame Yevonde carefully chose some society women, who she believed best embodied the attributes of certain goddesses. She created dramatic studio shots of each of them using colour, costume and props to build a surreal air around her subjects. ▫️#EvelynWaugh's close friend and biographer, the author #ChristopherSykes, wrote about her: "Of Australian origin, Sheila was one who shone in the fashionable London world of the twenties and thirties, and was among Evelyn's friends. She was a most amusing and amiable woman and held to be one of taste. Sheila told Evelyn that she had been shown a graveyard, just outside Los Angeles, which for sheer exquisite sensitive beauty surpassed anything she had seen of that kind. In its power of faith and consolation it was unique. It was religion and art brought to their highest possible association.”

#GavinHenderson, 2nd Baron Faringdon (1902-1977) by #SimonElwes, 1928; After his father died in 1922 Gavin became heir to his grandfather's title and wealth (inherited the estate of #BuscotPark). He was one of the #BrightYoungThings whose pranks appeared in the press and novels of 1920-30s. He was seem as hingly intelligent and oultured by some, and as absurd and self-indulgent by others. His friend, #JohnBetjeman gave him the nickname "Gawain" - reference the legendary hero Sir Gawain. His other close friend was #RobertByron. Gavin appeared as Kevin Saunderson in the first draft of #EvelynWaugh's 1928 novel 'Decline and Fall'. Gavin was gay, but his mother Lady Violet Henderson was determined to help her son find a suitable wife a career. In 1927-1931 he was married to Hon. Honor Philipps (1908-1961). On the eve of the wedding 30 friends arrived for Gavin's bachelor night dinner at the Phyllis Court Hotel, Henley-on-Thames. Two gossip columnists #BarbaraCartland and #TomDriberg attended and gave eye-witness accounts to their newspapers. Among other guests were: JB, #PeterRodd, #BobBoothby. A sailor attended the wedding night; the marriage lasted only four weeks de facto, during which Honor would lie awake and alone at night, fantasizing that her husband might have hanged himself. Described by #DavidCargill as a "roaring pansy", Henderson was known for his effeminate demeanour. His maiden speech addressed the Upper House as 'My dears' instead of 'My lords'. In 1930s Gavin had become was a founder member of the National Council of Civil Liberties. During the Spanish Civil War he was an anti-fascist and pillar of the "Aid for Spain" charity, and helped evacuate Rebublication refugees. A pacifist, he served as a fireman on the frontline during thr blitz. Post-war he was a prominent member of the Fabian Society. He died in 1977.

“a small red flame – a beaten-copper lamp of deplorable design, relit before the beaten-copper doors of a tabernacle; the flame which the old knights saw from their tombs, which they saw put out; that flame burns again for other soldiers, far from home, farther, in heart, than Acre or Jerusalem” -from the last page of Brideshead Revisited . I returned home from our Italy pilgrimage late last night to the stark American chapel to find the same devoted priest alone, after hours, praying as I had left him early the morning I started this journey. A true warrior in prayer. . I have been praying much for you and especially for the intentions you shared. . #catholic #pilgrimage #evelynwaugh #bridesheadrevisited

Pred vama su dva klasika u novom izdanju. Volim kada @mozaikknjiga odluci ponovo ozivjeti neki od klasika pa onda dobiju ovako divno ruho. Naslovnice su zaista vrh. No, ono sto je vaznije, radi se o dva odlicna romana. Jedan je djelo majstora engleske proze stoljeca, dok je drugi djelo velikog romanopisca turske knjizevnosti. 💚💙 "Zabranjene ljubavi" djelo je turskog knjizevnika Halida Ziye Uşaklıgila. U njemu su opisani zivoti triju zena. Majke Firdevs i njezinih dviju kceri Bihter i Pejker. Prica je to o moci, spletkama i ljubavi. 💙💚💙 "Povratak u Brideshead" roman je cija je radnja smjestena u vrijeme opadanja moci Britanskog carstva. Dakle, vrijeme II. svjetskog rata. Charles Ryder biva stacioniran u Bridesheadu zajedno sa vojskom. On se kroz djelo prisjeca vremena kada se u Bridesheadu druzio sa Flyteima i odlazio na kojekakve zabave. 💚💙 Zanimljivo je da su oba romana ekranizirana. Roman "Zabranjene ljubavi" je ekraniziran kroz TV seriju "Strasti Orijenta" koju smo svi imali priliku gledati na malim ekranima. Dok je po romanu "Povratak u Brideshead" snimljena istoimena TV serija 1981. godine sa Jeremyjem Ironsom u glavnoj ulozi, te 2008. istoimeni film. Jeste li citali ove knjige i gledali TV serije ili film? Koju od ovih knjiga biste zeljeli da napisem recenziju? #zabranjeneljubavi #povratakubrideshead #bridesheadrevisited #halidziyauşaklıgil #evelynwaugh #mozaikknjiga #bookstagram #booklover #bookworm #readingiscool #readingtime #bookstagrampl #bookphoto #bookporn #bookpic #readingbooks #volimknjige #volimcitati #bookaholic #bookholic #maytime #bookblogger #bookblog #zivotknjigoholicarke 📚📚

Almost forgot to show some finds from the #CBC Calgary Reads sale a week ago. It only comes once a year so I might as well get some content out of it, right? This is a more modest haul than the previous week but shopping fatigue was setting in. 1) A little paperback of John Hersey’s masterpiece. An unimpressive edition, but it’s a book I’ve wanted for years now. Published in 1946, this account of the Hiroshima bombing is considered one of the finest works of modern journalism, and an early example of a nonfiction story reported with the narrative techniques of fiction. 2) This Black Mishief goes with a few other Waugh Penguins I have, including Brideshead Revisited and The Loved One. 3) Some classic Edmund Burke in a vintage paperback. 4) Mary McCarthy’s dispatches from the Vietnam war. I didn’t know about this book until I picked it up, but it sounds like her pieces are essential reading in a genre saturated by dudes. 5) An attractive collection of Chaucer. The first thing I found and, aesthetically, maybe the best. It will go well with the Milton and Donne from last week. 6) The full stack, including some other history and fiction (Carson McCullers!). • • #bookstagram #bookaddict #booklove #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookworm #ig_reads #bibliophile #bookblogger #bookblog #bookcovers #bookcollector #bookcollection #classiclit #literature #classicliterature #beautifulbooks #bookphoto #yycbigbooksale #johnhersey #hiroshima #evelynwaugh #edmundburke #marymccarthy #chaucer #carsonmccullers

“The central building of the world.” AND the central building of The Stones Of Venice Tour. — The Venice book, yet to be titled, is almost finished as a first draft. The Tour codified, it is to be a gift from the author—who is me—to all those who take the Venice tour this September & October 2018. — From Venice’s rise to economic and military dominance, to the unparalleled beauty of her early churches & her palaces, to an explanation of the true nature of the term ‘Gothic’ and a walk-through of the gorgeous tombs that illustrate her religious falling-off—then to the Renaissance and the first great equestrian statue since antiquity and the greatest painter of all time and at last the greatest lover of all time… — Venetian history has it all. The central building of the world, is what Ruskin called its Ducal Palace. The central history of the world, is what I would call The Stones Of Venice Tour. — To understand Venice is to understand so much more. — Over 2 days this Autumn, I’m going to pass that understating on to you, by properly introducing you to a city that will give you a LIFETIME of intellectual, spiritual, & creative nourishment. — The Stones Of Venice Tour 2018 is launching soon. Watch this space for the release of its booking dates. — #stonesofvenicetour #letsgotovenice #theauthorinvenezia

Stumbled across this #decoupage made by #johnbingleygarland in #Victorian times on an old @wallpapermag online interview with me in a former life. I had perhaps ten of these from a so-called #bloodybook - of which there is one in @ransomcenter formerly in the possession of #evelynwaugh . I sold all of them with several going to #juliomariosantodomingojr for his #lsdlibrary the majority of which is now in the @houghtonlib #salesnostalgia you always regret not buying all 80 of something good

"Perhaps all our loves are merely hints and symbols; vagabond-language scrawled on gate-posts and paving-stones along the weary road that others have tramped before us; perhaps you and I are types and this sadness which sometimes falls between us springs from disappointment in our search, each straining through and beyond the other, snatching a glimpse now and then of the shadow which turns the corner always a pace or two ahead of us." #evelynwaugh #bridesheadrevisited 💕@dirt_erotic & @therealMUE(twitter) #photography #boudoirphotography

'It would be a dull world if we all thought alike.' ~~~ Evelyn Waugh, A Handful of Dust ~~~ Penguin English Library ISBN 9780241341100 June 2018 ~~~ I thought that the telephone would be a great illustration for this novel because a lot of the information about the characters becomes apparent through telephone conversations. Plus I could not pass up on the fun of illustrating the telephone cords around the PEL grid... ~~~ #penguinenglishlibrary #penguinbooks #ahandfulofdust #evelynwaugh #bookstagram #penguinclassics #coraliebickfordsmith

Dopo lunghi giorni di assenza, eccomi di ritorno in compagnia di questo libro, sicuramente uno dei migliori che abbia letto negli ultimi anni. Il TIME concorda con me, dal momento che l'ha inserito tra i 100 migliori libri in lingua inglese del secolo scorso. È la storia di Charles Ryder, un giovane studente di Oxford, voce narrante del romanzo, e della famiglia Flyte, ricca famiglia inglese cattolica in piena decadenza, a cui appartiene il grandioso castello di Brideshead che dà il titolo all'opera. È il romanzo della modernità e della tradizione a confronto, della guerra imminente, della fede e dell'incredulità. Il personaggio femminile di Lady Julia è senz'altro riuscitissimo. Non vi svelo altro: non è la trama ad essere fondamentale, ma i ritratti dei personaggi, i dialoghi, le descrizioni di paesaggi e città interiori ed esteriori. E soprattutto, il "sugo della storia": che non è mai detta l'ultima parola su una persona, una vita, una piccola tragedia umana. Che una fiammella rossa "la stessa che gli antichi cavalieri vedevano dalle loro tombe" resta accesa per altri soldati, altri uomini persi e lontani. Promosso a pieni voti. #evelynwaugh #ritornoabrideshead #booksonbooks #leggeresempre #letteraturainglese #london

Evelyn Waugh - Black Mischief (1932). The period between the world wars really had a weird effect on people I think. Europe was exhausted from the first one, and perhaps some could feel something new was brewing. Waugh was one of a kind. His charm, his wit and his comedy - all such a monumental part of the time he lived. He looked up to other greats who by that time died out, but his social standings with Churchill’s son and various others made him a part of this aristocratic cultural elite. Even Beerbohm was embarrased not to remember him. This book is full og comedy and funny wit. I guess some of it is a product of its time and not suitable, but I guarantee you tht the language holds quite the fresh kick still. Worth a read. . . . #books #book #bookstagram #bookshelf #shelfie #waugh #evelynwaugh #uk #dandy #dapper #earlgrey #tea #twinings #read #paper #black #mischief #africa #colonialism #colony #drinking

The first book. Seemingly harmless Latin words are here to promise a great deal of heartbreak and pain. Originally the phrase translates as ‘And in Arcadia I am’ whereas Arcadia is a heaven, a paradise and I is Death. Just to remind us that the bitter darkness, immense danger are always present even, or should I say, especially in the happiest places. At the beginning of the book Charles is in Arcadia. Being agnostic he is using youth to replace the Catholic concept of heaven. He is young, inspired, ‘in search of love’, which he later on finds in Sebastian. They lead quite the decadent lifestyle, getting drunk in the middle of the afternoon, spending the heavenly days together. Charles believes himself to be ‘very near heaven during those languid days at Brideshead.’ But nothing lasts forever. The mournful thread in Arcadia is Sebastian’s depression which slowly leads him to alcoholism. His desire ‘If it could only always be like this – always summer, always alone, the fruit always ripe and Aloysius in a good temper...’ is in fact a cry for help. Or I just see it that way, because I’m very similar to S. ALWAYS ALONE. This is his main wish. For some time Charles was a part of Sebastian’s loneliness, part of his fragile Arcadia, but no longer after getting closer to his family. Though Charles still is his friend ‘Contra Mundum’ and loves him dearly, but young Lord Flyte is far too deep inside his own head so he pushes his only friend further and further away, because he’s ‘no help’ to him any longer. The cruelest prison is the one we build for ourselves out of fear and regret. S. and I are both locked in ours. I am making my pathetic attempts to escape a little every day. Sebastian on the other hand doesn’t do much about it. ‘His constant, despairing prayer was to be let alone.’ ALONE. Yet again. What he wishes for is to be free. Free of his family, the tyranny of his mother, his religion... and so he drinks. ‘Sebastian drank to escape.’ But naturally he couldn’t run from himself and that inevitably led him to the horrid end.

Details. Cornelis de Man Portrait of the Pharmacist Dr. Ysbrand Ysbrandsz. Circa 1667 Oil on canvas The Leiden Collection, New York . . I have a strange longing to inscribe ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’ on the skull’s forehead. Yes, my obsession with ‘Brideshead Revisited’ is unhealthy. After reading it I see reminders of it everywhere. Though it’s fair to say that this part of the painting is pure decadence par excellence! . . . . #art #artblog #theleidencollection #cornelisdeman #painting #portrait #details #skull #etinarcadiaego #bridesheadrevisited #evelynwaugh #finearts #decadence

It’s been a year since I read Brideshead, which I only picked up by chance because I heard it was similar to The Secret History. It wasn’t really, but it was beautiful and I loved it, and I want to read more of his books sometime soon. 🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹🌸🌹 #bookstagram #bridesheadrevisited #evelynwaugh #declineandfall #literature #beautifulbooks #bookcovers #shelfie #bookstore #favoritebooks #happyreading

#Scoop Connaissez-vous ce roman d'Evelyn Waugh ? Non ? Pourtant "Scoop" a été classé parmi les 100 meilleurs romans de tous les temps selon The Guardian ! 😮 Son auteur est l'un des satiriste les plus cinglants de la littérature des années 1930 et son roman est une véritable farce qui, encore aujourd’hui, constitue le réquisitoire le plus juste sur les méthodes de désinformation parfois utilisées dans la presse. Résumé : William Boot, chroniqueur pour la rubrique « Faune et flore » d’un journal britannique, est un jeune homme avide de culture mais menant une vie modeste, loin du tumulte londonien. Le jour où le rédacteur en chef du Daily Beast l’envoie à l’étranger en tant qu’envoyé spécial, tout bascule pour lui... William est dépêché en Ismaël, un État fictif d’Afrique orientale où une guerre civile serait sur le point d’éclater. Mais à Jacksonburg, la capitale, nulle trace de révolte, ni même d’opposition : seulement une nuée de journalistes étrangers venus guetter les soubresauts inexistants de l’actualité ismaëlienne.

Обложки книг "Три повести" Гюстава Флобера и "Пригоршня праха" Ивлина Во, разработанные легендарным американским дизайнером Alvin Lustig в 1947 и 1945 годах соответственно. . Обложки книг, разработанные дизайнером, отличает нестандартный подход к передаче идейного содержания произведения — Alvin Lustig изображает его в собственном виденье, не ориентируясь на уже существующий литературный облик, но не нарушая при этом гармонию между содержанием книги и графическим воплощением ее тона, стиля, идеи. Работая над обложками, дизайнер ориентировался скорее на эмоциональное ощущение текста, что и определяло будущий облик книги.

Oh this book, this book! It’s been a while since I finish a book and say “it’s a “new favorite”. The feeling is just what Ali Baba must have felt walking into the thieves’ cave: the wonder, the joy!!!! Evelyn Waugh I must go on to read everything you have ever written! This outsider-looking-in “sacred and profane memories” of Captain Charles Ryder’s are a beautiful tale of his fascination with the Flynts and Brideshead (only a unique setting will do); through the period in-between world wars. The meaning of family, the tortuous road to finding oneself, the different approaches to -yet powerful draw of faith. Waugh touches upon all with the utmost sensitivity, allowing the reader to see life and the end of innocence through the differing views of Charles, Sebastian, Julia, beloved and daringly human characters. Definitely, a great novel and a well crafted portrait of the end of an era. #evelynwaugh #bridesheadrevisited #bookworm #bookish #bookishfeatures #bibliophile #frommybookshelf #bookblogger #bookstagram

Unexpected book mail! A drawback to living in exile (a somewhat melodramatic description of my state - although the prospect of a return to Brexit- or, shudder, Trump-land seems particularly unappetising right now) is that you have to leave old friends behind. But on the other hand, it means you can still be surprised by deliveries from out of the blue. This book being a case in point, entirely unexpected and for no good reason that I can think of, but very welcome. ¡Correo librero inesperado! Haber dejado viejos amigos atrás también significa que te puedan sorprender de vez en cuando. Un muy lindo libro sobre Oxford y Evelyn Waugh.  #bookstagram #instagram #evelynwaugh #bookmail #bookpost #nagshead #illustration

Ah, if only the pompous old bear could talk... Aloysius would probably be screaming because of the unbearable heartache for his owner, whose love for his own childhood made so painfully unhappy; who was trying to escape from his sick heart, but couldn’t run from himself; who was doomed from the very beginning. Who was doomed before his name was even mentioned. Whose fate was predetermined with the name of the first book ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’. . . Poor Sebastian. ‘And I am in Arcadia’ whereas I means Death. The phrase reminds us that the darkness is everywhere, even in the happiest places, The Death is always by our side. . . Oh, why? Why, God? Why do I relate to S. so much? It scares me. . . . . . #aloysius #sebastianflyte #bridesheadrevisited #anthonyandrews #charlesryder #books #etinarcadiaego #latin #oxford #blog #alcoholism #teddybear #quote #thoughts #evelynwaugh #england #catholic #death #doom #art #fiction #character #relatable #sadness #childish #childhood #love

Soft and strong Brandy Alexander, which Antoine shamelessly adores. Bittersweet brandy-based cocktail consisting of cognac, crème de cacao, and French cream, easy to make, delightful to drink! Remotely resembles Baileys, though feels more exquisite. “...But first we will have our apéritif.” At the George bar he ordered “Four Alexander cocktails, please,” ranged them before him with a loud “Yum-yum” which drew every eye, outraged, upon him.’ Anthony Blanche drinks four Alexander cocktails in a row and is still able to talk devilish nonsense about Sebastian and members of his family. Though it’ll be fair to point out that he’s the sanest character and turns out to be right. It is painful indeed. Let’s fill our glasses with this excellent cocktail and raise them to Antoine! . . . . #bridesheadrevisited #anthonyblanche #brandyAlexander #cocktail #alcohol #alcoholbeverage #baileys #drink #evelynwaugh #books #sebastianflyte #20s #blog #experience #bar #oxford #fiction #charlesryder #antoine #brandy

I’m inlove with Evelyn Waugh. A hundred pages into “Brideshead Revisited”; and I already want to buy every book he’s ever written. When the prologue “warns” the reader that it “lost (the writer) all esteem once enjoyed by his contemporaries”, you just know you’re in for a treat, even if he describes his book as just “the operation of divine grace on a group of diverse but closely connected characters” 😍😍😍#evelynwaugh #bridesheadrevisited #bookworm #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookblogger #bibliophile #modernclassic #bookstagram

I judge books by their covers. This one is going to be rather good. #evelynwaugh #gilbertpinfold #bookcover #bookdesign #bookstagram #library

‘Murder at the Manor’ - Country House Mysteries- I love the covers on these ‘British Library Crime Classics’. This is my Uncle’s 1928 Austin car which I could just imagine parked outside a large country house where a murder has taken place....Body in the library with the bloodstained candlestick 🗡 🔧💉🗝✂️👨‍✈️🍸👵🏻🕵🏻‍♀️🕯🕰📚...My aunt and uncle are setting off on a vintage car rally around the Wild Atlantic Way on the north coast of Ireland. Was interested to see which books were published the year this car was made. Lady Chattersley’s Lover - DH Lawrence Orlando - Virginia Woolf Decline and Fall - Evelyn Waugh Milly Molly Mandy - Joyce Lancaster Brisley The House at Pooh Corner - A.A Milne The Mystery of the Blue Train - Agatha Christie Lord Peter Views the Body - Dorothy L Sayers... #murderatthemanor #britishcrime #countryhouse #austincar #aamilne #agathachristie #millymollymandy #ladychatterleyslover #dhlawrence #joycelancasterbrisley #murdermystery #dorothylsayers #lovebooks #lovereading #bookstagram #igreads #evelynwaugh #britishlibrarycrimeclassics #virginiawoolf #wildatlanticway

** B O O K 🔸 H A U L #3 ** . Et enfin, clairement les livres que je suis méga heureuse d'avoir déniché. . 🔸 #monicadickens avec #mariana dans une édition orange #penguincollection #tropfièredemoi . Ça faisait pas mal de temps que je voulais lire ce livre et dans cette vieille édition, je le trouve encore plus classe ☻ . 🔸 #evelynwaugh avec #vilebodies et #scoop . Et là encore, je trouve ces penguin juste trop adorable avec leurs couvertures style art déco. Et Evelyn Waugh est un écrivain dont j'adore littéralement le travail. J'aimerais pouvoir (= avoir le temps 😅) de lire tous ces bouquins 😍 . . 🔚 D I S C L A I M E R 🔚 Je te demande pardon pour le bureau en bordel que tu vois en "décor" 😅 mais j'avais clairement la flemme de le ranger juste pour prendre trois photos 😉 😂
