Alan Hollinghurst, who is universally acknowledged as a master of the novel, first came to notice as a poet; by 1982 he was recognised as one of the leading poets of his generation. By examining the poems written in the decade in which they were his principal writings, as well as the occasional later poem throughout his career, this essay endeavours to show that the kind of poems he wrote had seeds of the novelistic in them from the first, both in subject and theme.
