This second part of a two-part survey lecture provides an overview of major developments in English/British Literature in the late nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The lecture covers late Victorian, modernist, post-war, postmodern and contemporary prose fiction (with side glances at other genres such as poetry, drama and new nature writing). Key texts by a wide variety of authors will be discussed in their cultural, literary historical and thematic contexts as well as in the context of influential developments in theory and criticism (race, class, gender, ecocriticism). I recommend chapters 5 (The Victorian Age), 6 (Modernism), 7 (1939-2015) and 8 (Postcolonial Literature) of Paul Poplawski (2018, ed.), English Literature in Context, as supplementary reading. The book is available online on Cambridge.org for Rostock students. Also available on Cambridge.org is the highly recommendable study by Peter Boxall (2013), Twenty-First Century Fiction: A Critical Introduction, Cambridge UP.
