Postmodern Parody in Latin American Literature: The Paradox of Ideological Construction and Deconstruction

Postmodern Parody in Latin American Literature: The Paradox of Ideological Construction and Deconstruction by Helene Carol Weldt-Basson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 267 Pages | ISBN : 3319904299 | 3.39 MB

This book examines postmodern parody in Latin American literature as the intersection between ideology construction and deconstruction. Parody’s chief task is to deconstruct and criticize the ideologies behind previous texts. During this process, new ideologies are inevitably constructed. However, postmodernism simultaneously recognizes the partiality of all ideologies and rejects their enthronement as absolute truth. This raises the question of how postmodern parody deals with the paradox inherent in its own existence on the threshold between ideology construction/deconstruction and the rejection of ideology.
