Description
Information
Charles Ryder, who tells the story, is seduced by Brideshead Castle and its denizens; but this seduction is merely the prelude to his improbable seduction by God... It is, appropriately, a seductive book. Even the overblown metaphors move and charm. The comedy is superb... and the evocation of pre-war Oxford and Venice, where Ryder "drowns in honey", is of great brilliance. This is one of those disturbing novels in which the faults do not matter
