Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 192 x 126 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With his distinctive dark wit, Evelyn Waugh s Decline and Fall is a masterful social satire sending up the social mores of 1920s England, edited with an introduction by David Bradshaw in Penguin Modern Classics. Expelled from Oxford for indecent behaviour, Paul Pennyfeather is oddly unsurprised to find himself qualifying for the position of schoolmaster at Llanabba Castle. Hi colleagues are an assortment of misfits, including Prendy (plagued by doubts) and captain Grimes, who is always in the soup (or just plain drunk). Then Sports Day arrives, and with it the delectable Margot Beste-Chetwynde, floating on a scented breeze. As the farce unfolds and the young run riot, no one is safe, least of all Paul. Taking its title from Edward Gibbon s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Evelyn Waugh s first, funniest novel immediately caught the ear of the public with his account of an ingenu abroad in the decadent confusion of 1920s high society. The funniest book I have ever read Julian Symons, The Times His first, most perfect novel .a ruthlessly comic plot John Mortimer, Guardian Concocted of cruelty, bigotry, pederasty, white slavery, violence, madness and murder, Decline and Fall is fundamentally playful and side-splittingly funny David Bradshaw.
