9780415039925: The Politics of Postmodernism (New Accents)

Continuing the project begun in The Poetics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon focuses on the politics of representation. Looking at both mass media and high art forms, she challenges the seeming transparency and apparent apolitical innocence of our visual images and verbal stories, asserting that these construct rather than reflect or express our experience of the world.

About the Author:

Linda Hutcheon is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. She has published extensively on postmodernism, parody and irony (including Irony's Edge: The Theory and Politics of Irony) and has recently done interdisciplinary work with Michael Hutcheon on opera and medicine (Opera: Desire, Disease and Death, and Bodily Charm: Living Opera).

Review:

"Intelligent and well-informed, Hutcheon's book (which also supplies the reader with a generous bibliography), in its reference to a multitude of verbal and visual texts as well as critical writings on the subject, is an excellent text for pedagogical purposes." -- Novel
