Overview

Postmodern Paradigm and Salman Rushdie's Fiction by Dr Shaikh Suhel Samad

The book highlights that postmodern fiction and more so Rushdie’s fiction is concerned with:

1. A preoccupation with viability of systems and representations.

2. The decentring of the subject and the inscription of multiple fictive selves.

3. Narrative fragmentation, narrative reflexivity and narratives which doubleback on their own pre-suppositions.

4. An open-ended play with formal divides challenging the pre-suppositions of literary realism.

5. Abolition of the cultural divide between high and popular forms of culture, embracing all in a mélange.

6. The displacement of the real by simulacra in Baudrillardian sense.

7. Incredulity towards the meta-narratives as Lyotard puts it.
