Jameel Ahmed Khalaf, Dr. Eiman Abbas El-Nour


This paper analyses and studies the Novella Love Among The Ruins written by the English Writer Evelyn Waugh in 1953. It also shows the main reasons behind Waugh's pessimistic vision against the modern society. Furthermore, the paper sheds light on Waugh's satiric and humourous style in which he mocks upon the social disorganization and the destructive system of the British Welfare State that deals with human being as numbers or objects without any spiritual or emotional values, to the extent that the life inside the prison is quite peter than outside it.
