Synopsis: This volume explores how novelists portray both the English university and the larger field of academic scholarship throughout the 20th century. It considers challenges to the university's power structure from groups such as women, lower-class men, and foreigners - especially Americans dealing with gender issues, class-consciousness, xenophobia, the politicization of literary scholarship, the novelist's creative process, rivalry between scholars, and the basic aims of the profession. Janice Rossen shows that fiction about university life and work can reveal significant insights into the larger culture and into the process of writing. She is also the author of "The World of Barbara Pym" and "Philip Larkin: His Life's Work" and has edited "Independent Women: The Function of Gender in the Novels of Barbara Pym", "Writers of the Old School: British Novelists of the 1930s" (with Rosemary M. Colt) and "Aging and Gender in Literature: Studies in Creativity"(with Anne M. Wyatt-Brown).
