In Brideshead Revisited, Waugh portrays every aspect in which one might pride oneself, and then eclipses it. Are you sophisticated? Meet Anthony Blanche. An aesthete? See Charles Ryder. Charming? Enter Sebastian. Erudite, heart-wrenching, and witty, Brideshead is a novel to which I am constantly returning, as Waugh masterfully captures humankind's intolerable wrestle with our loss of innocence and the hope of someday coming home.
