A Handful of Dust

Evelyn Waugh ↠ 3 characters characters Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Evelyn Waugh A Handful of Dust review ç 3 Oung man began as a diversion fashionable in her class and generation and became a vortex of ironic calamitiesEvelyn Waugh is too subtle a moralist however to point a moral and leaves his reader to take what side they. For those of you who live cloistered in a medieval turret of moral purity and use the interwebs only for researching your medical ailments and oh of course researching books as well you may or may not be interested to know that there is a cuckolding porn genre The interesting detail about this isn t that there is a particular subset of video pornography dealing with spouses cheating on each other because when you consider some of the very specific porn specialty niches biracial paraplegic dwarves humping dead color blind Basues for example cheating is one of the most banal and obvious No the truly interesting thing is that this genre often employs the word cuckold in its titles as if this were five cent everyday low rent kinda word At your leisure please review some of these actual porn titles Cum Eating Cuckolds 12 Cuckold Creampie 7 Grip and Cram Johnson s Cuckold MILFs Non Humiliation Cuckolding What s the point then Interracial Cuckold Surprise Is it the interracialism or the cuckolding that s the surprise Or the permutation of both Forced Bi Cuckolding and The Taming of the Cuckold You get the idea Many or most of these types of films involve an individual having some variant of sexual relations with another individual or individuals while the first individual s partner spouse or significant other watches or is forced to watch I hope you all appreciate that I had to go to wwwsmutnetworkcom at work and against my better instincts to procure those authentic cuckolding titles for youAgain I find it interesting that the porn industry should employ the word cuckold as opposed to merely cheating or cheaters especially when one considers that porn video sleeves not infreuently contain misspellings of common words I saw thier recently ahem when I was doing my investigative research There s something very Olde Englishy about the word cuckold even though it has French origins and the kind of infidelity featured prominently in Evelyn Waugh s A Handful of Dust is at least nearer to the associations I have with cuckoldry than a giant black man with a Texas sized schlong anally penetrating a coked out blonde bag of silicon while a skinny nebbish is tied to a windsor chair But then again the English language contains myriad subtleties connotations and associations does it notIn general I don t find cuckolding stimulating I find it sad Not in the sense of two people in a relationship agreeing to fuck other people with the other s knowledge which is their own perogative I suppose but in the sense of a spouse or partner being kept in the dark lied to and possibly publicly humiliated by hisher soulmate So that s what makes Evelyn Waugh s A Handful of Dust a particularly bitter satirical pill to swallow The main character Tony Last is a cuckold Waugh provides us with absolutely no evidence that he is anything but a kind compassionate and attentive husband His wife Brenda rather glibly and carelessly carries on with an undesirable man named John Beaver who is not particularly kind interesting or attractive In fact no one in Brenda s circle of friends and acuaintances seems to understand why Brenda should slither around with Beaver behind Tony s back and to the point Brenda herself doesn t seem entirely able to pinpoint his appeal In constructing the first half or two thirds of the novel along these lines Waugh creates a very prickly uncomfortable humor We the readers are encouraged to be amused by Tony s humiliation and Brenda s cavalier indecipherable infidelity Even while one laughs one feels genuinely sorry for Tony True to his legacy Waugh manages some very funny underlyingly bleak comic episodes one involves Brenda trying to set up her husband with the wife of an Arab so that he won t bother her so much Around the midpoint of the novel Waugh tosses in an exceptionally dark plot point which I won t reveal here which in tune with the rest of the novel is treated casually Unsettlingly so Then somewhere around two thirds of the way in the novel takes a strange new course which isn t completely successful but mostly successful at any rate Tony it would seem is so affronted by the protocol of the good society of England that he embarks upon a rather radical response to it But as you might expect Waugh isn t about to provide him with the respite he desires and that s what makes Waugh at his best so brittle and yet enjoyable He makes us feel various things at odd with each other Humor and tragedy Empathy and mockery Dissatisfaction and complacency

Aren t we ALL Last in the end I can just hear Waugh s grim faith rooted world weary grunt of agreementTony Last is a happy remnant of the Edwardian gentry so much like his friends and so many folks we know moneyed but house poor measuring out his comforting illusions in coffee spoons until those illusions are shattered Fate knocks on his door LoudlyIllusions What use are they in the stormAs for me as I grow old I have fewer illusions and am glad of it Because like Auden s elderly friends at a twilight gathering in the final poem of his great song cycle The uest his version of the age old uest for meaning you really should read it I have felt my centre of volition shifted As I age the illusions are now much less comforting than is Eliot s condition of complete simplicity costing not less than everything The condition of the faithfulAnd that is precisely what Evelyn Waugh discovered hereYes when you ve lost it all as all of us will you ll find it all if you keep your faith Just like Tony and Waugh who had moved over to the Church just before publishing Tony Last s bittersweet story his own decline and fallBecause if you re Last you ll be the first The first in true Lasting Peace among all the Lost

Evelyn Waugh ↠ 3 characters characters Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Evelyn Waugh A Handful of Dust review ç 3 Will in this story of a broken marriage He is over too sophisticated a chronicler to ignore the comic and the ridiculous in human misfortune and A Handful of Dust is well flavoured with his shrewd and astringent humo. Brilliant but its sparkle is ice cold It s clever that the naive and saintly Tony is seamlessly recast as the villain of the piece not just by his wife Brenda but by most of their friends too But Brenda is the evil one most dramatically demonstrated by a misplaced Thank God It sounds innocuous but in context it s one of the most chilling lines I ve ever read Reading Dickens in the jungle for eternity would that be heaven or hell
