Postmodern Short Fiction in America

Lecture no. 21 from the course: Great American Short Stories: A Guide for Writers and Readers

Postmodern Short Fiction in America

Taught by Professor Jennifer Cognard-Black | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Consider how the “meta-experience” of postmodernism is created by going against the traditional ideas of immersion and author invisibility, and investigate how different authors accomplish this tricky balancing act.
