Graves begins by sharing the time he spent in the Engish public school system and the cruelty he experienced there. He enlists in the army to get away from it all and finds much of the same social conventions that he despised replicated in the service. His descriptions of life in the trenches of France is gut wrenching. He is severely wounded and returns to England.
Post War Graves writes of his time at Oxford and his friendship with TE Lawrence (of Arabia)and other notable writers of his generation. I found this part of the book incredibly interesting. Graves and his wife embark on a bicycle trip and stop to visit Thomas Hardy. He and Hardy discuss poetry and literary criticsm.
Folowing that there is a fascinating period that he spends in Egypt teaching.
As a memoir and autobiography this is first rate. In the end the title refers to England itself. Graves left to live out his life in Spain.
