Post –modernism The second part of this essay is devoted to post-modernism. I have chosen two periods of Modernism and Post-Modernism as they are so much interconnected, the further development of modernism resulted in forming another movement in art, called as post-modernism. The word ‘post-modernism’ is over used nowadays and it gives the impression of being just nothing behind the popular buzzword. Although, it is a separate movement, which has a number of commonalities with modernism art, but
experimentation championed by writers of the modernist period (relying heavily, for example, on fragmentation, paradox, questionable narrators, etc.) and a reaction against Enlightenment ideas implicit in Modernist literature. Postmodern literature, like postmodernism as a whole, is difficult to define and there is little agreement on the exact characteristics, scope, and importance of postmodern literature. However, unifying features often coincide with Jean-François Lyotard's concept of the "meta-narrative"
the culture of this nation. Postmodernism took America from a place where it held strong values of right and wrong, to a place where any idea has been given validity and merit. By presenting new world views, postmodernism has affected American literature, for both the writer and the reader, and American culture on a vast scale. Explaining postmodernism is very challenging because it does not have a real meaning other than “after modernism” (Merriam-Webster). Postmodernism has influenced every aspect
• New Historicism - When I did research on New Historicism I found that it is seen as is a school of literary theory and that it was first developed in the 1980’s. Also when I looked for a definition for New Historicism I found that it is seen as an expressive act that is embedded into a network that consists of material practices. - When we want to look for New Historicism in a novel or in a movie it is important to first have a look at the author’s biography as well as the social background
A further expounding of the relationship between black humour and existentialism in literature will clarify Catch-22’s position in literary history (La-mei, 2014). Deconstruction Deconstruction is a critical outlook regarding the relationship between text and meaning. Furthermore, deconstruction is a way of reading any text and thereby exposing the instability
Introduction American literature, to my eyes, like American history, although short, however, still full of glories and shining masterpieces and writers. Those American writers, while conquering this wild America, also had conquered the great field of American literature.

Famous for his well-documented theories on Post-Modernism and the media, Baudrillard presents numerous commentaries on the media’s portrayal of ‘reality’ within society. His theories are extensive and include thoughts and narratives on Marxism and the rise of ‘new’ technology, to note a few. As Richard Lane suggests, “Jean Baudrillard is not only one of the most famous writers on the subject of postmodernism, but he somehow seems to embody postmodernism itself.” (Lane, R. 2000, p.1) However, the focus
Abstract Postmodern performance of Shakespeare, particularity in film, is characterized by a subjective experience within the play not an objective experience from the play.

. Organization Theory Challenges and Perspectives John McAuley, Joanne Duberley and Phil Johnson . This book is, to my knowledge, the most comprehensive and reliable guide to organisational theory currently available.
