Death in the Funhouse: John Barth and Poststructuralist Aesthetics

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating details ·  6 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
In contrast to recent attempts to distinguish postmodernism from poststructuralism, "Death in the FUNhouse" finds deep complicity between the two discourses. This book looks comprehensively at the middle and late texts of John Barth to demonstrate the complexity of the postmodern author - and the never-ending quest for pleasure.
Paperback, 180 pages
