Character and Satire in Postwar Fiction (Continuum, 2004) explores the widespread use of caricatural techniques in the contemporary novel. Postmodern Literature (Hodder Arnold, 2006) is a reappraisal of theorisings of postmodernism and indicates the presence of realist writings, and concerns about Nature, which oppose the official line on the postmodern.

While the performative codes of breadwinner masculinity have broadened to include more playful, caring, and sensitive orientations-the so-called new male archetype (Cross 2008; MacKinnon 2003; Mallan 2002)-these gender-norm shifts have added a degree of cultural complexity to the breadwinner model, rather than displace it per se (Connell and Messerschmidt 2005; Hatfield 2010). Patrick Ness’s exploration of normative and transgressive embodiments of masculinity in his dystopian Chaos Walking series for young adults powerfully addresses tensions between power and vulnerability, autonomy and conformity, and concepts of boyhood and manhood.

Himself a poet, Gregson (English, U. of Wales-Bangor) explores how English poetry of past few decades portray the experiences of the male body, of masculine identity, and links between the two. He discusses conventional expectations about male power, how it is acquired and maintained, and how it is a source of both prestige and vulnerability. He considers some women and gay writers, but mostly straight (as far as he knows) men, among them Robert Lowell, John Berryman, Seamus Heaney, and Paul Muldoon. Annotation c.
