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.
