The author’s autobiography. Divided into anecdotal scenes and satiric episodes, Good-Bye to All That is infused with a dark humour. It chronicles the author’s experiences as a student at Charterhouse School in London and as a teenaged soldier in France during World War I, where he sustained severe wounds in combat. For about a decade after the war, Graves suffered from shell shock. His memoir continues after the war with descriptions of his life in Wales, at the University of Oxford, and in Egypt.
