Post Modern Literature - T.M

Post Modern Literature is "a style and concept in the arts characterized by distrust of theories and ideologies and by the drawing of attention to conventions." The term Post modern literature is used to describe certain characteristics of post-World War II literature, relying heavily, for example, on fragmentation, paradox, questionable narrators, etc. It's also a reaction against Enlightenment ideas implicited in Modernist literature.

How it works:
Post-modern literature is well known for denying the possibility of finding truth and delights in taking the reader down unexpected paths that throw one's whole sense of what is real off balance. One recurrent way of doing this in postmodern literature is to have the characters turn to the reader or writer and appeal about the what is being written. Post modern literature is a complex form of writing that takes the reader in a new direction as it follows different direction.
