Definition of the noun AGA saga
What does AGA saga mean as a name of something?
- [British] a genre of popular novel set in a suburban or rural location and featuring domestic and emotional themes of middle-class characters.
The Aga Saga is a sub-genre of the family saga of literature. The genre is named for the AGA cooker, a type of stored-heat oven that came to be popular in medium to large country houses in the UK after its introduction in 1929. It refers primarily to fictional family sagas dealing with British "middle-class country or village life". The nickname "Aga Saga" is sometimes used condescendingly about this type of fiction. The term was incorporated into the Oxford Companion to English Literature in 2000.
