Introduction Question 1 4 / 4 points Why does postmodernism suggest the world is ontologically unstable? Because nuclear warfare can wipe out all life on earth, so the world is no longer stable. Because our world is dominated by branding, advertising imagery and digital models, so that what’s real and what isn’t is becoming more and more difficult to show. Because movies have become more popular than books, so people can’t trust the written word any more. The postmodern period is one marked by lots of unemployment, so people feel their world is no longer stable. Question 2 4 / 4 points What were the two main changes in literature post 1945? Literature shifted from modernist to postmodernist in style and civil rights movements had dramatic impacts on the kinds of literature produced. Electronic books became the most popular medium to read. Because of the Cold War, all literature was focused on the political and military themes that dominated the news of the day. Television and movies became so prominent that literature was no longer studied. Question 3 4 / 4 points
Which of these is NOT an influence of the civil rights movements on literature?
