Lodge has also written several television screenplays and three stage plays.Since retiring from academia, he has continued to publish literary criticism, which often draws on his experience as a practising novelist and scriptwriter.He says of his retirement, "It was the right time to leave.All my former colleagues say: 'You are well out of it.' There's a weary disillusion to university life now and that's a shame because, when I was there, there was excitement, a joie de vivre.
Lodge's first published novels, evoke the atmosphere of post-war England (for example, The Picturegoers (1960)).Kennedy: "Some members of the audience had caught the words and tittered uneasily, taking it as a joke in poor taste.In the interval everybody discovered the awful truth, and the second half of the show fell very flat."
