The Rough Life

As far back as my memory extends, the rough life has existed for me as something real and vivid but utterly remote. When I say that I have lived until now in circumstances of practically unvaried comfort, I am not making the pretence of having been cradled in gilded luxury; on the contrary, I am merely stating a commonplace of normal English adolescence.

Author Profiles

Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was one of the masters of modern British prose and satire. His notable works include the novels Brideshead Revisited, Vile Bodies, Decline and Fall, and Scoop.

T. S. Eliot authored dozens of books of criticism and poetry, most famously Prufrock, and Other Observations (1917), The Waste Land (1922), and Four Quartets (1943). He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.
