Immigration novels became the most vital form of English fiction in the 20th century. Issues of national self-identification and adoption came to be an important theme of the works of Priestly, Ford, and Fowles. In these immigration novels, a distinction between the first and second generation novelists are discussed in the chapter. Despite the differences among the two generations, a sense of spatial confinement is what is shared among them both. These immigration novels emphasise the creation of a new national identity from the changing circumstances.

Keywords:   immigration novels, Fowles, first generation novelists, English fiction, Priestly, spatial confinement, Ford, second generation novelists
