Course Info
This course is geared to an analysis of the postmodern novel in English literature. After a discussion on the theories of postmodern culture, the course will pursue the questions of representation in literature through close readings of the selected postmodern novels. Tracing how experience, history, knowledge, memory and reality are put into the scene in these texts, it will explore the postmodern novels’ various responses to literary, social, political, and economic problems. Therefore, while drawing a theoretical and practical framework for students to recognize the formal and stylistic aspects of the postmodern novel, the course will also raise questions about the contemporary global culture.
