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. Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.

Carol Ann Howells speaks about Atwood’s technique as, Obviously revisionist perspectives have narrative consequences not only for narrators but also for readers, turning our attention towards process of deconstruction and reconstruction while emphasizing the provisionality of any narrative structure. Atwood’s novels are characterized by their refusals to invoke any final authority as their open endings resist conclusiveness, offering instead hesitation, absence or silence while hovering on the verge of new possibilities. Their indeterminacy is a challenge
This plot is mainly composed of beginnings, middles and ends or what we can also refer to as exposition, rising action or development, climax and denouement. These elements, along with a great focus on characters and characterization, target temporality in order to maintain a chronological order of events that incorporate past retention, present prominence and future anticipation. Such texts are referred to, from Roland Barthes’ point of view, as readerly texts. In fact, in his essay “S/Z”, Barthes labels texts with definite and fixed meaning as readerly texts as they limit the role of the reader to the reception of the transmitted
The future is full of chaos, as people prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. 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; furthermore, the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Accordingly, different predictions on what will occur throughout the novel are the ideals of postmodernist literature. Moreover, one way an author can write in a nonlinear, flexible fashion is to write with a component of mystery.
He said, “’Creative nonfiction’ seems slightly bogus. It’s like patting yourself on the back and saying, ‘My nonfiction is creative.’ Let the reader be the judge of that. “ According to Cristina Hildago, a writer of creative nonfiction should not alter the accuracy of the narrative but in order to write an interesting story, a writer must also use of “devices and strategies available to the fictionist.” Generally, writers conduct researches, interviews, and immersion to effectively maintain the validity of the factual elements on the subject
Narrating Modernity: The structural dynamics in “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” In this paper I intend to talk about Muriel Spark’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie as an example of the modernist movement and how certain features of the modernist period were incorporated in this literary text. With inventive story-telling techniques and fascinating characters the novel becomes persuasive and engrossing. Therefore any modern day reader would find it to be “the crème de la crème.” Spark have used certain modernist techniques such as the text loses chronology and hence time is circular. There is little description as modernists like more to allude to things. The stream of character’s consciousness is represented, that’s why the works are often
As a manner of writing, realism relies on the use of specific details to interpret life faithfully and objectively. In contrast to romance, this concerned with the bizarre and psychological in its approach to character, presenting the individual rather than the type. Often, fate plays a major role in the action. Realism became prominent in the English novel with such writers as Daniel Defoe, Samuel Richardson, Henry Fielding, Tobias Smollett, Laurence Sterne, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Anthony Trollope and William Makepeace Thackeray (Dictionary of Literary Terms, p. 163). The term ‘Realism’ is widely accepted according to need and time.
The reader 's more extensive comprehension is an immediate differentiation to the constrained comprehension of a solitary character. This organizing exhibits the constraints of a particular point of view. Since a subjective identity lays on an individual 's restricted perception and experience, a subjective identity can be translated as, hence, constrained or temperamental. Support of the capacity to keep up an adjacent self-identity may be noted if the novel were about a particular character who was exhibited in the main individual: there would be no clashing point of view from which to consider the character 's identity. The proper organization of the novel represents a differentiation to the solid quality of a subjective identity.

To me this demonstrates his manifesto that the emphasis of writing is on process, not product. C. The statement I found confusing was in “Basic Aims of Discourse” where Kinneavy talks affective fallacy as assuming the reaction of any given reader as an accurate indication of author’s purpose. To me, to rely on the reader to assume intention is ambiguous and potentially inaccurate.

The landscape of action are the actual even happening within a story line, while the landscape of identity of consciousness are factors such as understanding or knowledge that affect why the story is being told in that manner (White, 2007). Lastly, White mentions the author Jerome Bruner, a pioneer of this process, to assist White in his explanation of how texts compare to both life and engagement as writer creates his/her story.
