review ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô Evelyn Waugh Evelyn Waugh Ô 6 review review Labels AUTHOR Evelyn Waugh ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Fail to be inspired by Waugh's uintessentially English attitude and his elouent and freuently outrageous wit From Europe to the Middle East and North Africa from Egyptian porters and Italia. What I did in the holidays is deservedly a cliche for a tired English writing class task but when the pen writing the account is that of Evelyn Waugh it becomes something different even when the actual underlying structure remains the same This really is the account of what Evelyn did in his holiday in 1930 if I remember right when he took ship from Portsmouth and fetched up in the Mediterranean It s the tale of people met restaurants eaten in a particular concern of Waugh s and the minutiae of travelling a well worn road Unlike his later travel books Waugh was not bringing anywhere unknown to light but simply commenting on the familiar He doesn t even really shed any particularly new light on the familiar But it s the writing the sheer brilliant crystalline precision of the writing that makes it all worthwhile So while the skeleton is the same tired old English writing task it s made somehow translucent effervescent and slightly cruelly alive by Waugh s prose My goodness the man could write
