Students examine British writing today and traces its development by looking at the literature of the recent past. The novels, poetry and drama of the late-twentieth-century and early twenty-first are part of a culture’s search for value, after traditional values—such as religion, nationalism, certainties of gender, and a host of other dependable ways of giving meaning to life—have fallen under question or even into disfavour.
