Post Modernism in Pynchon and Kingston
[ send me this essay ]
Surrealism and integrity are two ingredients that one generally doesn't expect at the same time and in the same place. Yet, both Thomas Pynchon and Maxine Hong Kingston have been able to meld the two into a coherent whole. This 5 page paper examines the postmodern stories: Pynchon's short story on Entropy, and Kingston's novel of the Tripmaster Monkey and His Fake Book, in an effort to verify their ability to embody the principles of postmodernism with their temporal and cultural settings, as well as the reliance on the visual image to convey the essence of their respective morals. No additional sources are listed.
