  • Postmodernism


Political events of the last century both changed the political map of the globe and generated entirely new reality in human minds. A new narrative discourse came into being in which the author of a narrative developed into a narrator character and a narrator reader. Narration comprised documenting of basic political events and facts with a background of the retrospection of history.

Predominantly, both the author and the reader get involved within a common narrative discourse as far as the literary representation of the recent past evokes postmodernist sensitivity in the same way both in reality and in imagination.
