The term New Oxford Wits was applied, around 1980, to a group of young English writers who had been at the University of Oxford in the 1970s.[citation needed] It alludes to the Oxford Wits of the 1920s. Those supposed to be in the New Oxford Wits were Martin Amis,[1] Julian Barnes, Tina Brown, James Fenton, Ian Hamilton and Craig Raine.
