Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
In every novel around the globe you can find carefully constructed paragraphs, written by the author to send a specific message to the readers. In The catcher in the Rye by J.D.

The diction of this passage appears to be the key in unraveling Holden’s mood swings.
In literature, archetypes “evoke deep and perhaps unconscious responses in a reader” (2043). Similarly, Hawthorne uses various symbols in “The Minister’s Veil,” and “The Birthmark” to enhance, and clarify his stories’ themes. Hawthorne’s tenacity on his symbols leaves a huge burden on them. His stories become overly dependent, so much so if a symbol is too obscure the story becomes a riddle. Consequently, the birthmark fails to establish the story’s theme, and thus the story trembles.
It's significant to know that Holden deems Old Spencer's advice as phony because he doesn't agree with the rules of life. This quotation helps readers understand Holden's motives on much of his dislikes in things because he believes that he is on the unfair side of the game.

Faulkner and Jackson both write their stories -withholding vital information- that ultimately lead up to an atrocious and puzzling conclusion. Their stories have the same objective, which is to create a mysterious, tense setting and then surprise you with a shocking and thrilling ending. They use both foreshadowing and other literary elements to cause suspicious feelings and create tense moments that keep you guessing at what the big shock is going to be. However, their methods of withholding information differ and they have their own unique ways of using literary elements to create a grisly outcome.
