The York Notes Companion to Postwar Literature examines the literary developments of the second half of the twentieth century, a period defined by a tension between conservatism and innovation. Examining key works and genres including the postmodern novels of Julian Barnes and Angela Carter, the modern lyrics of Philip Larkin and Sylvia Plath, and the innovative dramas of Samuel Beckett, Caryl Churchill and Tom Stoppard, the Companion offers detailed commentaries on texts, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of postwar literature.

About the author: William May is a Research Fellow in Humanities at the University of Southampton.
