James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake and Ulyssesshould qualify as high brow literature. Poetry might be the best medium when searching for 20th century high-brow material. Ezra Pound should qualify there as well as many others.

Barthes should qualify as a high-brow theorist. Baktin and Malarme are other literary theorists from the 20th century.
