The Oxford English Literary History: Volume 12: The Last of England?: 1960-2000 - new book

2000, ISBN: 9780198184232

ID: 978019818423

English Literature in the 1960s soon threw off its post-war weariness and the tepid influences of the previous decade. New voices, new visions, and new commitments profoundly reshaped writing during the 60s, and throughout the rest of the century. Drama thrived on its rapidly rebuiltfoundations. New freedoms of style and form revitalised fiction. Poetry, too, gradually recovered the variety and inventiveness of earlier years. As well as comprehensively charting these changes in the literary field, Randall Stevenson persuasively pinpoints their origins in the historical, social, and intellectual pressures of the times. Literary developments are revealingly related to the wider evolution and profound changes in Englishexperience in the late twentieth-century to shadows of war and loss of empire; declining influences of class; shifting relations between the genders; emergent minority and counter-cultures; and the broadening democratization of contemporary life in general. Analyses of the rise of literary theory, of publishing and the book trade, and of the pervasive influences of modernism and postmodernism contribute further to an impressively thorough, insightful description of writing in the later twentieth-century a literary period Stevenson shows to be farmore imaginative and exciting than has yet been recognised. Lucid, accessible, and engaging, this volume of the Oxford English Literary History presents a unique illumination of its age - one we have lived through, but are only just beginning to understand. The first full account of its period, itwill set the agenda for discussion of late twentieth-century literature for many years to come.

Details of the book
The Last of England?: 1960-2000
Author:

Stevenson, Randall

Title:

The Last of England?: 1960-2000

ISBN:

0198184239

Critics have scarcely begun to write about the development of English literature at the end of the twentieth century. In this volume, Stevenson lucidly and engagingly examines the full range of contemporary writing in England, along with the literary, intellectual, and historical movements which shaped it. The result is a fascinating account not only of individual writers and texts, but of the whole imagination of a period we have just lived through but barely begun to understand.
