Brenda Marshall's Teaching The Postmodern is the first introduction to postmodernism accessible enough for the undergraduate reader and rigorous enough to inform and challenge the advanced student and the teacher. Designed for the classroom, Teaching The Postmodern reads both literary texts and theory. Marshall engagingly introduces the reader to key terminology and concepts: structuralism, poststructuralism, the critique of subjectivity, the critique of representation, intertextuality, historiographic metafiction, and counter-memory. Fiction by Italo Calvino, J.M. Coetzee, Michel Tournier, Christa Wolf, Salman Rushdie, Timothy Findley, and Toni Morrison roots the theory in practice. Taking on the notoriously inaccessible, Teaching The Postmodern demonstrates that postmodernism can be comprehensible, and even fun.
