What's in a name...

For he had spoken a name, a name that was so familiar to me, a conjuror's name of such ancient power that at its mere sound, the phantoms of all those haunted late years began to take flight.

-- Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited

My little bit of wisdom to add if I may. This a good set of books on him: http://www.firstthings.com/ftissues/ft9305/articles/weigel.html

Weigel reviews the 2-volume set in the First Things issue, but I have these books in my library. I agree with the title of the book review: "St. Evelyn Waugh." Amen to that!
