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 storm?As 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 Quest his version of the age old quest 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
