From 1950 to 1999, the fiction genre of Ladlit presented British readers with a romantic, comic, popular male literature, which was regarded as a chance to examine male identity in contemporary Britain. But by the beginning of the 21st century one was seeking for a new story of masculine identity.

Literature: Mirror of Society That literature is a reflection of the society is a fact that has been widely acknowledged. Literature, as an imitation of human action, often presents a picture of what people think, say and do in the society. It is impossible to find a work of literature that excludes the attitudes, morale and values of the society, since no writer has been brought up completely unexposed to the world around him. It also projects the virtues or good values in the society for people to emulate

Literature is a mirror of society because it gives an image, but the image is not necessarily a true image. The image can be distorted in reality or perceived as distorted by society as a whole. Literature tends to focus on subjects current to societal engagement

Literature is a mirror of society because it gives an image, but the image is not necessarily a true image. Literature tends to focus on subjects current to societal engagement. This type of reflection is observed in many different time periods. Two dramatic pieces focusing on African-American history and struggle, "A Raisin in the Sun" (1959) and Roots (1976) were written during a period of great civil strife in American society.

From 1950 to 1999, the fiction genre of Ladlit presented British readers with a romantic, comic, popular male literature, which was regarded as a chance to examine male identity in contemporary Britain. But by the beginning of the 21st century one was seeking for a new story of masculine identity. In the meantime, there has been a focus on masculinity in language and gender studies, whereas the exclusive attention had formerly been upon femininity. The tradition of man being constituted in terms of universal, normative values has led to the phenomenon of 'invisible masculinity'. However, there has always been a discourse available to men which allows them to represent themselves as people or mankind. The book examines how the representation of masculinities has changed in society in the recent fifty years. Using different theories of gender studies, masculinities and the effects of socio-economical changes, the following novels will be discussed: Amis's Lucky Jim (1954), Sillitoe's Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1958), Hollinghurst's The Swimming-Pool Library (1988) and Hornby's About a Boy (1998). The book especially addresses scholars of Literature and Social Sciences.
