Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited: A Commentary, Part II

In the second part of his commentary on Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, Dr. White continues with his analysis of the characters and main plot lines, while he illustrates his assessments with skillfully read excerpts. It is a novel figuratively without fathers, White maintains, as he discusses the bleakness of Charles’ youth and the abandonment of Sebastian, a tortured soul who nevertheless is the central character of Book One. Lord and Lady Marchmain, Julia, Bridie, Cordelia, and others are all brought to life with Dr. White’s reading.
