The Contemporary in Literature: Post 1945

Imaginative writing of the post-war period reflects the complexity of contemporary life. In themes as old as folk tales and as current as new visions of space, writers express the dreams and terrors of post-nuclear life. It is an era in which values and beliefs have been challenged and conventional distinctions - illusion and reality, fact and fiction, the sacred and the profane - have been called into question by writers as diverse as Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje.
