If you haven’t read or watched this mini-series “Brideshead Revisited” by Evelyn Waugh, you absolutely must. (Don’t watch the Brideshead Revisited movie from 2008. It’s absolutely dreadful.) The book’s characters are so mysteriously complex and deep, I can barely wrap my mind around them. The entire mini-series is on youtube, and it will be well worth your while some winter to watch it in its entirety.
Here is a rather humorous clip with the main character, Charles Ryder, and the pious Cordelia.
