Postmodern Fiction

This course will trace the development of postmodern fiction, from formally postmodern texts to later texts that define postmodernism more as an engagement with issues of gender, ethnicity, media, cultural hierarchy and politics. To understand these texts we will read some theory and heaps of add and astounding works of postmodern fiction by such writers as Don DeLillo, Paul Auster, Douglas Copeland, and Toni Morrison, as well as watch some movies by postmodern filmmakers, such as Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, and Charlie Kaufmann.
