At the end of World War II, Captain Charles Ryder and his troops, looking for a billet, have just arrived at Brideshead, the now-dilapidated family castle belonging to Lord Marchmain, a place where Charles Ryder stayed for an extended period just after World War I, the home of his best friend from Oxford, the outrageous and obviously gay Lord Sebastian Flyte who, even in his university days, wouldn't abandon his teddy bear, Aloysius. Sebastian, an odd and decadent person, tries to escape his upbringing and religious obligations through alcohol. Much is made of the homoerotic subtext of the relationship between Sebastian and Charles. Charles feels responsible for Sebastian's welfare, and though there is no mention of any homosexual relationship, Charles does say that it is this friendship which first teaches him about the depths of love. Another central gay character is the stammering and blatant Anthony Blanche. This gay classic has now been reprint a film tie-in for the upcoming remake motion picture.
