Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Hamburg (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: This essay deals with postmodernism and its different realizations of the term in literature and about one of the most recognizable authors of this period, Salman Rushdie. First of all, we would like to give a brief overview of the history of postmodernism, whereas we see that it is rather difficult to find a clear and satisfying definition of this expression. We try to name and shortly explain the main features of postmodern literature and to inform the reader about some of the most typical authors of this period. In the second part of this essay we want to clarify the referred attributes of postmodernism with the example of Salman Rushdie whose book Shame, or at least some passages of it, will be part of a closer analysis.
