Portal:Modern British literature

Modern British literature

Modern British literature includes works written in the United Kingdom during the period from 1900 to 1960. It is preceded by Victorian literature and followed by Post-modern British literature. The British literary tradition is one part of the broader tradition of British literature. For the purposes of this portal the year 1899/1900 is the start of the Modern era; works listed here may not be grouped as part of the modernist movement by literary critics.

This portal is not intended as an exhaustive list of modern works from the United Kingdom. Items that are listed might be included in a course on modern British literature, or have had a significant cultural impact. Literature courses typically do not cover scholarly works, whether historical, philosophical, religious, or scientific, so those works are not listed here. However, scholarly works about modern British literature are included under the appropriate sections.

Additionally, this portal does not include works still under copyright; works may be added to Wikisource once they enter public domain. Nor does this page include works written in languages other than English and Scots, except in translation. These points of delimitation are the result of the scope of the English Wikisource. For works originally written in Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Latin, or other languages, please visit the Wikisource project for that language.

See Portal:United Kingdom for works of historical importance related to the nation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
