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.
