Fighting high-modernist stereotypes with postmodern weaponry. Academic hostility

Nicolau, Felix LU (2017) p.419-429
Abstract
Lucky Jim, 1954, by Kingsley Amis, is considered by everyone an extremely funny academic novel; a novel of the genre. A third millennium close reading may uncover, however, side-meanings at the time of publication which, in the meantime, have become central meanings. The humoristic ingredient of the novel has dwindled dramatically, whereas the underestimated conflict between modernist rituals and postmodernist reactions has spiralled upwards.
