Description - The Fiction of Postmodernity by Stephen Baker
A study of the relation of postmodern fiction to theories of the postmodern. Contemporary works of fiction by novelists such as Don DeLillo, Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Thomas Pynchon and Martin Amis are viewed in relation to the most influential theoretical discussions of postmodernism and postmodernity. These theoretical writings include Theodor Adorno's critique of the "culture industry", Frederic Jameson's and Jean-Francois Lyotard's analyses of postmodernism and the "postmodern condition", and Jean Baudrillard's discussions of "seduction" and simulacra.
