Description
:

A study of American literature from the postmodern period, 1950s to the present, often characterized by the blurring of genres, the breakdown of "high" and popular culture, the movement of marginalized subjects to the center of cultural expression, and the use of paradox and irony to suggest disillusionment and lack of closure.
