Literature of the 1950s: Good, Brave Causes

Volume 6

Alice Ferrebe

Published by Edinburgh University Press

This lively study challenges the myths about apathy and smugness surrounding British literature of the period. It rereads the decade and its literature as crucial in twentieth-century British history for its emergent and increasingly complicated politics of difference, as ideas about identity, authority and belonging were tested and contested.
