Goodbye to All That

Goodbye 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).
