EN 3860 - Post‐Modernism: Irony Takes Center Stage


Postmodernism seems to be a self-consciously contradictory phenomenon. It is as much about attitude as it is about negation of attitude. It is about trying to find meaning in a world where none may exist. Postmodernism seems to dominate the period after WWII, and irony dominates most of the works of art and literature of that period. The students will try to find the reasons as to why this may be so, as well as examine what Postmodernism may be heralding for the future by reading and analyzing carefully selected works of art, criticism, literature, and music. Prerequisites: one 2000 level Literary Movements course. (4 Credits) Not open to students who have taken EN 4860
