KNIGHTS AND PAGES OF ACADEMIA IN DAVID LODGE’S CAMPUS TRILOGY
Wojciech KlepuszewskiWydział Humanistyczny Politechnika Koszalińska
Academic fiction, in general, touches upon a variety of issues concerning the groves
of academe. One of the most prominent areas comprises the university staff, particularly
the professoriate, and the lower ranks, whose predominant target is to become upgraded
in the academic pecking order. In this respect, academic fiction depicts a world that is
highly hierarchical and prone to personal frictions. The aim of this article is to analyse
how these problems are dissected in David Lodge’s Campus Trilogy.
