The tumultuous transition from modernism to postmodernism. Fictional representations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


What is an intellectual about in this context? It seems that the traits of British provincial intellectuals in the 50s are snobbery, social sophistication and hierarchical mentality. Their productivity consists of correct, but mediocre articles, and once in a while books, especially compilations. These are the pillars of a decrepit modernism, figment of social respectability, but not of originality and profundity.
