Hollinghurst’s novel in many ways can be seen as the reconstruction of the past from a literary point of view, which is also true when one talks about Waugh’s novel Brideshead Revisited. Both Hollinghurst’s and Waugh’s novels reconstruct the past in order to make sense of the present, reinforcing the nostalgic attitude of the 1930. In both novels the country house is the space where nostalgic memory, religion – in Waugh’s case – and most importantly, homosexuality is present.
