un movimento che diventa slogan

The  Angry Young Men were a group of working and middle class British playwrights (autori di teatro) and novelists. They became well-known in the 1950s. John Osborn was the leading figure for the theatre , Kingsley Amis  for  novels. The definition was originally coined (coniata) by the Royal Court Theatre’s press officer who wanted to  promote John Osborne’s Look Back in Anger. Probably it derives from the title of Leslie Paul’s autobiography (1951). Then the  label (nome) was applied (applicato) by British media to describe young British writers who were characterized by a disillusionment (delusione) with traditional English society. The individual struggle (lotta) with the authority  is the focus also of Luther another play by  John Osborne which  debuted (debuttò) in London in 1961. This  historical play – with a timeless theme (tema senza tempo)-  is about  the figure of Martin Luther, the sixteenth-century monk who publicly  denounced  old practices and beliefs (credi) of the Roman Catholic Church, and began the Protestant Reformation. But the  play mainly stresses (sottolinea) Luther’s faith (fede) and personal reactions: it shows  how Martin Luther followed his convictions in the face of great doubts (dubbi), and so transformed Christianity forever.
