Inhaltsangabe: Contemporary Britain is a country in a state of change. Britain is being transformed by the ongoing process of devolution as well as by its increasing multiethnicity. At the same time there is the - still controversial - need of forming closer ties with the European Union. In the present volume this process of change is described by a politician and by an historian.The main focus of the book, however, is, before this background, on the state of British culture and literature at the turn of the century, and it contains, among others, essays on multicultural Britain, the decline of utopian thought, the celebrity cult and the state of theory as well as on the recent "boom" of lyrical poetry and the "drama of blood and sperm". The essays were written, from different perspectives, by professors of English literature and/or culture at universities in Britain, Germany and Switzerland. The book is of interest for university and school teachers of English, for university students of English as well as for the general reader interested in the present condition of the United Kingdom.

Inhaltsangabe: At the turn of the twenty-first century Britain is in a state of change. It is being transformed by the ongoing process of devolution as well as by its increasing multi-ethnicity. At the same time the relationship with the European Union remains controversial. This book charts these transformations in the context of the changes Britain experienced a century ago, at the turn of the twentieth century. Focusing on British politics, culture and literature the articles examine a range of topics, including models of utopian and apocalyptic thought, the contemporary celebrity cult, the state of literary theory in Britain and the recent "boom" in lyrical poetry and the "drama of blood and sperm".
