goodbye

Good-bye to All That by Robert Graves

Berghahn

1995

It was in 1957 that a middle-aged Robert Graves totally revised the text of his classic autobiography, robbing it of the painfully raw edge that had helped to make it an international bestseller. By cutting out all references to Riding, by deleting passages which revealed the mental strains under which he had laboured, and by meticulously editing the entire text. Graves not only destroyed most of what had made it so powerful, but also removed it from the only context in which it could be fully understood.

Here, with a biographical essay, is an annotated edition of Robert Graves's original work. Still in print in the USA and the UK.
