Waugh, Evelyn:

The Complete Short Stories - hardcover

1998, ISBN: 9780375404306

[ED: Hardcover/gebunden], [PU: Everyman's Library], with dust jacket ---------------------------------- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Waugh Pasternak Slater, Ann (ed.) (1998). Evelyn Waugh: The Complete Short Stories. London: Everyman's. These stories have all Waugh's characteristically brilliant, savage wit and reproduce his unmistakable world in miniature. They also constitute a vital supplement to the major novels, while being significant works in their own right. Great compilation of Waugh's short stories Dec 27 2013 By James A. Gorton This is a very nicely produced volume of all of Waugh's short stories, together with the unexpected bonus of art published with the stories or in some way related to them. This is not a best of collection, so unless you are writing a thesis or dissertation on Waugh, it's probably best to stay away from the juvenilia and the college stories of his early years. Otherwise, highly readable, full of Waugh's mordant humor. Highly recommended. Some Golden Oldies Here Nov. 5 2007 By Stephanie De Pue "The Complete Short Stories of Evelyn Waugh," major, British writer of the twentieth century, who tended to comedy, is certainly the product of thorough editing, including, as it does, several of his short short juvenile, and Oxford, pieces. It also includes several fragments of novels excised from the final, or never completed, and, of course, the many stories Waugh published in magazines during his lifetime. The earliest work, dating from the 1920's, shows Waugh as the skillful, amusing and witty social commentator we see in the novels then published, such as, "A Handful of Dust," and "Decline and Fall." "Bella Fleace Gave A Party," published in "Harpers' Bazaar," U.K., and U.S, is an amazingly brief masterpiece of social detail, as an Irish landowner sets about giving her last ball. If you've never given a ball, you could follow the instructions Waugh gives -- though, thankfully, we don't have to lick stamps anymore -- and give one successfully. Mind you, though, success will require mailing the invites. "The Man Who Liked Dickens," substantially expanded, became the ending of "Handful" that novel's alternate ending is also published here. Two chapters of an unfinished novel give us an entertaining closeup of the wealthy bohemian social life of the period. From somewhat later in his career, World War II and afterwards, we find "Charles Ryder's Schooldays," excised from Waugh's masterwork, "Brideshead Revisited." The level of detail and dialogue in this is such as to lead a reader to think the young Waugh must have been keeping voluminous diaries before he could spell properly. "Compassion" is a bitter World War II story about the wartime treatment of Jews: his characters did not always seem that fond of the race. "Love Among The Ruins," set in the post-war period, is apparently Waugh's only stab at science fiction, and not too successful. "Scott-King's Modern Europe" is hilarious, and witty too. Consider his resonant description of air travel: "He had left his hotel at seven o'clock that morning it was now past noon and he was still on English soil. He had not been ignored. He had been shepherded in and out of charabancs and offices like an idiot child he had been weighed and measured like a load of merchandise he had been searched like a criminal he had been cross-questioned about his past and his future, the state of his health and of his finances, as though he were applying for permanent employment of a confidential nature. Scott-King had not been nurtured in luxury and privilege, but this was not how he used to travel. And he had eaten nothing except a piece of flaccid toast and margarine in his bedroom....A voice said: 'Passengers for Bellacita will now proceed to Exit D,' .... while, simultaneously, the conductress appeared in the doorway and said: 'Follow me, please. Have your embarkation papers, medical cards, customs clearance slips, currency control vouchers, passports, tickets, identity dockets, travel orders, emigration certificates, baggage checks and security sheets ready for inspection at the barrier, please.'" After all that, the man's got to sneak back into the country. If this sort of thing is your cup of tea, then it'll be your cup of tea., [SC: 2.00], leichte Gebrauchsspuren, privates Angebot, 13.3 x 4 x 21.1 cm, [GW: 760g], [PU: New York, London, Toronto], 1

The Complete Short Stories (Everyman's Library) - used book

ISBN: 0375404309

ID: 5338602

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)Evelyn Waugh's short stories are the marvelous, concentrated riffs of his comic genius, revealing in miniaturized perfection all the elements that made him the greatest comic writer of our century. We find in them Waugh's almost superhuman technical skill as a writer and his quicksilver attentiveness to the minutiae of human absurdity, as well as his worldly knowledge, his tenderness, his perceptive compassion, and his sophisticated, disabused, but nevertheless forceful idealism. The thirty-nine stories collected here include such small masterpieces as "Mr. Loveday's Little Outing" and "Scott-King's Modern Europe"; an alternative ending to Waugh's novel A Handful of Dust; a "missing chapter" in the life of Charles Ryder, the hero of Brideshead Revisited; and two linked stories, remnants of an abandoned novel that Waugh considered his best writing.This edition contains the original illustrations to "Love Among the Ruins," as well as more than thirty graphics produced by the author as an Oxford undergraduate in the 1920s. anthologies,fiction,genre fiction,humor,humor and entertainment,humor and satire,literary,literature and fiction,satire,short stories Humor & Entertainment, Everyman's Library
