The Image of the English Gentleman in Twentieth-Century Literature by Dr Christine Berberich Summary

Studies of the English gentleman have tended to focus mainly on the nineteenth century, encouraging the implicit assumption that this influential literary trope has less resonance for twentieth-century literature and culture. Christine Berberich challenges this notion by showing that the English gentleman has proven to be a remarkably adaptable and relevant ideal that continues to influence not only literature but other forms of representation, including the media and advertising industries. Focusing on Siegfried Sassoon, Anthony Powell, Evelyn Waugh and Kazuo Ishiguro, whose presentations of the gentlemanly ideal are analysed in their specific cultural, historical, and sociological contexts, Berberich pays particular attention to the role of nostalgia and its relationship to 'Englishness'. Though 'Englishness' and by extension the English gentleman continue to be linked to depictions of England as the green and pleasant land of imagined bygone days, Berberich counterbalances this perception by showing that the figure of the English gentleman is the medium through which these authors and many of their contemporaries critique the shifting mores of contemporary society. Twentieth-century depictions of the gentleman thus have much to tell us about rapidly changing conceptions of national, class, and gender identity.

Waugh Without End by Carlos Villar Summary

Compiled on the occasion of Evelyn Waugh's centenary in 2003, this collection of essays shows a renewed critical interest in the author extended by scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. The contributions go back to an international symposium held at La Rioja University, 15-17 May 2003. Apart from traditional debate over questions of fact and interpretation, the book contains innovative approaches to Waugh's oeuvre, some of which make use of theories of discourse and media studies and denote an increasingly sophisticated awareness of his religious, political, and social contexts. Beginning with those essays presenting overviews of Waugh's life and work, and continuing with discussions of particular books in chronological order, this volume deals with a wide variety of aspects that confirm Waugh's rising status as a major twentieth-century classic.

Retorno a Brideshead by Evelyn Waugh Summary

El retorno de Charles Ryder a Brideshead --la elegante mansión de lord Marchmain, convertida ahora en cuartel-- devuelve a su memoria aquellos tiempos, anteriores a la guerra, en que paseaba embelesado por sus hermosos jardines y salones y se dejaba sucumbir al hechizo de sus singulares habitantes. En realidad, nunca pudo Charles librarse de su ambigua amistad con el inquieto Sebastian, ni de su obsesivo amor por la hermana de éste, lady Julia, ni de la oscura y contradictoria fatalidad que dejó marcada para siempre la atribulada vida de los Marchmain con su huella de drama y desvarío.--Descripción de la editorial.

From Grimes to Brideshead by Robert Reginald Garnett Summary

This book is a study of the first half of Evelyn Waugh's career, from Decline and Fall to Brideshead Revisited. Unlike recent criticism, which regards Waugh as essentially a moralist, this book argues that Waugh's characters are primarily motivated by personal demons and imaginative impulses.
