Very good. I see you are really into the whole pomo thing.Komaticom said:One can't categorise texts as literature or art, or whatever. A poem is literature, but it may as well be also art. Same with games. It's all a matter of interpretation, in this pomo society.
I don't think the point is to link to your texts, the point is to use your texts AND your supplementary material to link to the module - postmodern ideology. A piece of postmodern architecture can be a great supplementary text, and yes, it can really link well to your texts because it will show that you have a broad understanding of the different ways postmodernism has impacted upon vastly differing aspects of society. Using examples from art, literature, architecture, film, etc shows that you can identify postmodernism and its agenda across the board, not only that you have memorised a few language techniques to regurgitate in relation to a novel.somechick said:I mean how much can you write on a description of a building, and then link it to your texts.
YES, Andy warhol is acceptable.. I know alot of people used examples of his work for assessments in class and will for the exam tomorrow. Pop art is postmodern as it 'burrows' ideas/techniques from cartoon and taken into the context of art.paolo21 said:I was wondering if any Pop Artists, like Andy Warhol, would be appropriate. Seeing its not particularly postmodern, it adopts heaps of its ideas, similar to what Waiting for Godot does despite it being Absurdist. What do you guys reckon?
Blur - Girls and Boys
Pearl Jam - Do the Evolution
Waiting for Godot
Would video games be legitimate for supplementary material? How would you go about it?
i would advise not to use something like big brother. whilst you have picked out that there's intertextuality there, there's not enough evidence to suggest that the show is actually postmodern. It follows a seemingly linear structure and i doubt you could find any more postmodern techniques than the loosely referenced "big brother" example.Malfoy said:You can use modern pop music or even reality television if you know how to do it right... Big Brother stole the concepts from Orwell's 1984, don't forget!
