Postmodernism Summary


Postmodernism: A Reader by Edited by Patricia Waugh

"Postmodernism" is a valuable resource for the increasing numbers of teachers and students in higher education involved in courses on postmodernism and literary theory. It is a collection of the incessantly cited but nevertheless still widely-scattered critical texts on the subject and includes all the "classics" as well as some less obvious, through no less stimulating, choices. An introduction and commentary by Pat Waugh provides essential information and offers a context within which to view the chosen texts. The first postmodernist reader prepared with literature students particularly in mind; the thorough and helpful editorial commentary help to ensure that this will become an essential coursebook.
