Postmodernism provides a collection of the incessantly cited but nevertheless still widely-scattered critical texts on postmodernism and literary theory. It includes all the "classics" as well as some less obvious, though no less stimulating, choices. An introduction and commentary by Pat Waugh provides essential information and offers a context within which to view the chosen texts.
