CRY OF DISSENT IN SILLITOE’S NOVELS
Volume: 4 Issue: 2 2014
British novelist, short story writer, essayist, poet, playwright, screen writer and author of children literature, Alan Sillitoe was one of England’s most prolific contemporary authors known for his candid and compassionate depictions of British working class life. He is part of a generation of writers known as the ‘Angry Young Man’ including John Wain and Kingsley Amis – whose defiant male protagonists fight against the deprivations and injustices of Britain’s strongest class system. Although Sillitoe often portrays disillusioned characters who are either unemployed or trapped in unskilled occupations, his works utilise a realistic prose style allowing the emotions and concerns of his characters to appeal to a universal audience.
