This module introduces debates around the fiction of the 1960s by way of a focus on the more experimental novels of well-known writers of the time such as Anthony Burgess, Iris Murdoch, Muriel Spark, Angela Carter and J.G. Ballard, as well as the self-styled `modernist¿ group led by B.S. Johnson and Ann Quin. The module looks at how this experimentalism interacted with that traditional strength of British post-war fiction: social realism, producing a distinctive strand of British fiction in the 1960s.
