Robert Graves writes Good-Bye to All That in the first-person limited point of view. It is a conventional memoir in terms of the reader knowing only what the narrator knows at the time.
Good-Bye to All That is in the past tense.
Good-Bye to All That primarily means goodbye to England, as Graves is leaving Britain to live on the Spanish island of Majorca, but also goodbye to his marriage, which has failed. In a larger sense, he is saying goodbye to the world he knew before the war and also to the person he was in the war and afterward back on the home front: a traumatized and shell-shocked soldier.
