  • BRAINYBABE DECLARES WAUGH ON WORDIE!

    December 23, 2008

  • OK, thank you for the tip. Hope you will join in with the Waugh list!

  • The best way of doing that is to click on "more searches" in the top-right corner of your screen, and search for "waugh" in lists and comments. If no lists show up with "waugh" in the title or description, then you might find such a list by looking at comments with "waugh" in them, and tracing through to the attendant list.

    But I've just looked and there don't seem to be any Waugh-specific lists as yet - so go ahead and change that!

  • Do you know how this place works? For example, how could I find any existing Waugh lexicon lists?

    December 23, 2008

  • Yeah, I'd heard about the less-bleak one but I've never read it. It's the Dickens monomania that clinches it for me - a true vision of hell.

    I've also not read "Black Mischief". It's on my list, though.

  • You do know that he wrote at least two endings -- the edition I have just returned to the library had a bleak one and a less bleak one. Both bitingly funny. (Although I like the cannabalistic end to the aviatrix in his Ethiopian-inspired novel.)

  • That's my favourite Waugh novel, and perhaps the best ending to any novel.

  • From Evelyn Waugh's ''A Handful of Dust''. A hunt meeting hosted on the lawn of someone's home, complete with stirrup cup. Colloquial speech.
