Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis

“…The examinations were now in progress, and Dixon had nothing to do that morning but turn up at the Assembly Hall at twelve-thirty to collect some scripts.  They would contain answers to questions he’d set about the Middle Ages.  As he approached the Common Room he thought briefly about the Middle Ages.  Those who professed themselves unable to believe in the reality of human progress ought to cheer themselves up, as the students under examination had conceivably been cheered up, by a short study of the Middle Ages…”

Lucky Jim, by Kingsley Amis published by Penguin Books in 2000, ISBN: 0141182598
