This volume is part of the Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh critical edition, which brings together all Waugh's published and previously unpublished writings for the first time.This first volume of Evelyn Waugh's Articles, Essays, and Reviews contains every piece of journalism that research could uncover written by Waugh between January 1922, when he first went up to Oxford, and December 1934, when he had recently returned from British
Guiana. The origins of the works are explored, and annotations to each piece seek to assist the modern reader. Long interred in fashion magazines, popular newspapers, sober journals, undergraduate reviews, and
BBC archives, 110 of the 170 pieces in the volume have never before been reprinted. Several typescripts of articles and reviews are published here for the first time, as are a larger number of unsigned pieces never before identified. Waugh was 19 when his first Oxford review appeared, 31 when the Spectator printed his last review of 1934. This is a young writer's book, and the always lucid articles and reviews it presents read as fresh and lively, as challenging and opinionated, as the
day they first appeared.
