The book provides an introduction to postmodern literatures by exploring its interactions with a range of subjects such as history, technology, media, gender, and the postcolonial. Postmodern readings have increasing significance in the “virtual and real worlds we inhabit today”. Through a detailed study of selected texts, the book examines the features, trajectories and narratives of this literary movement, and showcases how the experience of reading postmodern literature can be enhanced by active engagement with the text.
