Late Modernism and the Avant-Garde British Novel

Oblique Strategies

Julia Jordan

  • Offers a reassessment of the experimental and avant-garde postwar British novel
  • Provides an account of how the literary avant-garde in Britain in the 1960s was imbricated with other literary and artistic movements, and argues for the extension of the category of late modernism
  • Develops a new understanding of the role of the accidental and the indeterminate in experimental literature
