About the Author:

Jago Morrison is Head of English at University College Chichester.

Review:

'With its clear explanations of key terms and contexts for the study of Contemporary British Literature and its attractive sample readings of selected texts, this is sure to become a favourite with students and teachers in the field.'
- Richard Brown, Reader in Modern Literature, School of English, University of Leeds, UK

"This a highly accessible introduction to the field of contemporary British literature. Its most admirable contribution is its opening contextualization of current debates in two spectacular chapters by the editors and by Patricia Waugh. Each exemplifies the qualities of the volume as a whole, offering a synthetic historical trajectory combined with brilliant literary readings, often deceptively compacted into a single paragraph. The book is suitable for students at the point of entry into university education; indeed, I cannot think of a volume that provides a clearer or more nuanced overview of the field for those considering literary studies at the undergraduate level."
-Timothy Bewes, Associate Professor, Department of English, Brown University, USA

"Editors Cockin and Morrison have assembled a comprehensive and accessible introduction to literature and culture in post-war Britain. The book includes introductions to authors, texts and contexts; guides to key critics, concepts and topics; an overview of major critical approaches, changes in the canon and directions of current and future research; case studies in reading primary and secondary texts; and annotated further reading (including websites), timeline and a glossary of critical terms." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.



"The Post-war British Literature Handbook is a valuable resource for students, teachers and researchers alike. It brings together some of the leading literary critics in the field, is well organized, and Katharine Cockin and Jago Morrison have done a fine editing job. It provides important historical and cultural contexts set against illuminating readings of important writers of the period as well as some of the most influential critical theory." (Nick Bentley, Lecturer in English Literature, Keele University, UK)
