    Postmodernism

    Postmodernism is a complicated term, or set of ideas, one
    that has only emerged as an area of academic study since
    the mid-1980s. Postmodernism is hard to define, because it
    is a concept that appears in a wide variety of disciplines or
    areas of study, including art, architecture, music, film,
    literature, sociology, communications, fashion, and technology.
    It's hard to locate it temporally or historically, because it's
    not clear exactly when postmodernism begins.

    Perhaps the easiest way to start thinking about postmodernism
    is by thinking about modernism, the movement from which
    postmodernism seems to grow or emerge. Modernism has
    two facets, or two modes of definition, both of which are
    relevant to understanding postmodernism.


    The first facet or definition of modernism comes from the
    aesthetic movement broadly labeled "modernism." This
    movement is roughly coterminous with twentieth century
    Western ideas about art (though traces of it in emergent
    forms can be found in the nineteenth century as well).
    Modernism, as you probably know, is the movement in
    visual arts, music, literature, and drama which rejected
    the old Victorian standards of how art should be made,
    consumed, and what it should mean. In the period of
    "high modernism," from around 1910 to 1930, the major
    figures of modernism literature helped radically to redefine
    what poetry and fiction could be and do: figures like Woolf,
    Joyce, Eliot, Pound, Stevens, Proust, Mallarme, Kafka, and
    Rilke are considered the founders of twentieth-century modernism.
