The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to 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; 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.
Second Shadow “There is no advertisement as powerful as a positive reputation traveling fast” ( Brian Koslow).

Carl Sandburg, often referred to as “the poet of the people”, utilized poetry as a means for social reform. Engrossed in the so-called “Gilded Age” of the early 20th century, Sandburg focused most of his work on exposing the corrupt foundations of the nation’s dazzling successes. Having grown up as a poor laborer, Sandburg focused almost exclusively on the treatment of the working class in works such as “I am the People, the Mob” and “And They Obey”. To add emphasis to his cause, Sandburg utilized poetic techniques such as free verse, repetition, rhetorical questions, and contradictions. Sandburg hoped to alter the political and social conscience of the country through his poetry rather than the traditional approach of political participation.
There is something inherently fascinating about the dark, about the more morally ambiguous parts of life of others and ourselves. It is an allurement that is as organic as the desire for happiness for we are humans and we are made of three parts which are the light, the dark and everything in between. The sad truth about life is that most of us spend most of our lives trying to reconcile all the different seemingly contrasting fragments that go into shaping us and our identities. These little fragments we try reconcile include interacting and making peace with our dark sides. This comes with no surprise in the movie which therefore enables us to connect with fictional characters that are undergoing similar journeys such as the Dark Knight.
