Brideshead Revisited, revisited

I first read Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited in my 20’s, after seeing the lengthy BBC adaptation of it on a series of Monday night Masterpiece Theatre broadcasts.

With the new movie version of it having been released, I’m revisiting Brideshead in preparation of attending a screening this weekend.

Some favorite quotes:

“We thought you were fairies when you came in.”

“That was our extreme youth.”

And this one:

I was no fool; I was old enough to know that an attempt had been made to suborn me and young enough to have found the experience agreeable.

From today’s reading on the jet:

“My dear, he really is such a sot. Sip, sip, sip like a dowager all day long.”
