About the Author

Born in Hampstead and educated at Oxford University, Evelyn Waugh came from a literary family. His elder brother, Alec was a novelist, and his father, Arthur Waugh, was the influential head of a large publishing house. Even in his school days, Waugh showed sings of the profound belief in mostrar mais Catholicism and brilliant wit that were to mark his later years. Waugh began publishing his novels in the late 1920's. He joined the Royal Marines at the beginning of World War II and was one of the first to volunteer for commando service. In 1944 he survived a plane crash in Yugoslavia and, while hiding in a cave, corrected the proofs of one of his novels. Waugh's early novels, Decline and Fall (1927), Vile Bodies (1930), and A Handful of Dust (1934), established him as one of the funniest and most brilliant satirists the British had seen in years. He was particularly skillful at poking fun at the scramble for prominence among the upper classes and the struggle between the generations. He lived for a while in Hollywood, about which he wrote The Loved One (1948), a scathing attack on the United States's overly sentimental funeral practices. His greatest works, however, are Brideshead Revisited (1945), which has been made into a highly popular television miniseries, and the trilogy Sword of Honor (1965), composed of Men at Arms (1952), Officers and Gentlemen (1955), and The End of the Battle (1961).

Resenhas

La Helena de Waugh es un personaje del que se nos muestra toda su trayectoria, desde su nacimiento en Britania hasta su viaje en busca de la Vera Cruz, centrándose sobre todo en el carácter y la psicología de un personaje femenino fuerte y de firmes convicciones al que le tocó vivir uno de los grandes momentos de crisis de nuestra civilización, cuando el cristianismo fue reconocido como religión de un Imperio romano devastado por la insensatez, la corrupción y las intrigas, trasfondo histórico que Waugh retrata con brillantez. Es esta combinación de lo personal y lo histórico lo que permite además una lectura de la novela como interesante reflexión sobre los procesos evolutivos de las sociedades y como una exposición de las contradicciones nunca resueltas por completo de la civilización occidental.
La madre de Constantino el Grande se revela aquí como la gran mujer que había tras un gran hombre.

The best of travel writing and reportage, I fully enjoyed this. Waugh was a brave and adventurous young man when he made these trips. His satiric observations are so often very funny and made more so through his elegant and understated prose. Waugh's assignment to the Ethiopian Coronation in 1930 is a classic piece. Wonderful in every way.

Listened to this as an audiobook as well. Great stuff. It's goals are modest, but it's exceedingly well written. It's an arch, often nasty satire. Frequentlly funny in very wry way. Startling at times.
