Goodbye to All That - opis produktu:

In 1929 Robert Graves went to live abroad permanently vowing
ever to make England my home again This is his superb account of his life up until that bitter leavetaking from his childhood and desperately unhappy school days at Charterhouse to his time serving as a young officer in the First World War that was to haunt him throughout his life It also contains memorable encounters with fellow writers and poets including Siegfried Sassoon and Thomas Hardy and covers his increasingly unhappy marriage to Nancy Nicholson Goodbye to All That with its vivid harrowing descriptions of the Western Front is a classic war document and also has immense value as one of the most candid selfportraits of an artist ever written
His wonderful autobiography Jeremy Paxman Daily Mail It is a most miserable thing to feel ashamed of home There may be black ingratitude in the thing and the punishment may be retributive and well deserved but that it is a miserable thing I can testify Home had never been a very pleasant place to me because of my sisters temper But Joe had sanctified it and I had believed in it I had believed in the best parlour as a most elegant saloon I had believed in the front door as a mysterious portal of the Temple of State whose solemn opening was attended with a sacrifice of roast fowls I had believed in the kitchen as a chaste though not magnificent apartment I had believed in the forge as the glowing road to manhood and independence Within a single year all this was changed Now it was all coarse and common and I would not have had Miss Havisham and Estella see it on any account How much of my ungracious condition of mind may have been my own fault how much Miss Havishams how much my sisters is now of no moment to me or to anyone The change was made in me the thing was done Well or ill done excusably or inexcusably it was done Once it had seemed to me that when I should at last roll up my shirtsleeves and go into the forge Joes prentice I should be distinguished and happy Now the reality was in my hold I only felt that I was dusty with the dust of smallcoal and that I had a weight upon my daily remembrance to which the anvil was a feather There have been occasions in my later life I suppose as in most lives when I have felt for a time as if a thick curtain had fallen on all its interest and romance to shut me out from anything save dull endurance any more Never has that curtain dropped so heavy and blank as when my way in life lay stretched out straight before me through the newlyentered road of apprenticeship to Joe I remember that at a later period of my ime I used to stand about the churchyard on Sunday evenings when night was falling comparing my own perspective with the windy marsh view and making out some likeness between them by thinking how flat and low both were and how on both there came an unknown way and a dark mist and then the sea I was quite as dejected on the first workingday of my apprenticeship as in that aftertime but I am glad to know that I never breathed a murmur to Joe while my indentures lasted It is about the only thing I am glad to know of myself in that connexion For though it includes what I proceed to add all the merit of what I proceed to add was Joes It was not because I was faithful but because Joe was faithful that I never ran away and went for a soldier or a sailor It was not because I had a strong sense of the virtue of industry but because Joe had a strong sense of the virtue of industry that I worked with tolerable zeal against the grain It is not possible to know how far the influence of any amiable honesthearted dutydoing man flies out into the world but it is very possible to know how it has touched ones self in going by and I know right well that any good that intermixed itself with my apprenticeship came of plain contented Joe and not of restlessly aspiring discontented me What I wanted who can say How can I say when I never knew What I dreaded was that in some unlucky hour I being at my grimiest and commonest should lift up my eyes and see Estella looking in at one of the wooden windows of the forge I was haunted by the fear that she would sooner or later find me out with a black face and hands doing the coarsest part of my work and would exult over me and despise me Often after dark when I was pulling the bellows for Joe and we were singing Old Clem and when the thought how we used to sing it at Miss Havishams would seem to show me Estellas face in the fire with her pretty hair fluttering in the wind and her eyes scorning me often at such a time I would look towards those panels of black night in the wall which the wooden windows then were and would fancy that I saw her just drawing her face away and would believe that she had come at last After that when we went in to supper the place and the meal would have a more homely look than ever and I would feel more ashamed of home than ever in my own ungracious breast
