Goodbye to All ThatGoodbye to All That
, an autobiography
by Robert Graves
, first appeared in print in 1929
. It expressed Graves' desire to say "Good-Bye to All That", "All That" being an England
dominated by middle-class morality
. Graves first wrote the work in his thirties, when he had a long and eventful life ahead of him; the book deals mainly with his childhood, youth and military service.
Graves heavily revised Goodbye to All That and re-published it in 1957 with many significant events and figures either excised or added.
Edmund Blunden and Siegfried Sassoon, deeply suspicious of the work, famously savaged a copy (now housed in the Royal Welch Fusiliers archive in Caernarfon).
