Please define Post-Modernism-is an intellectual stance or mode of discoursedefinedby an attitudeof skepticism toward what it describes as the grand narratives and ideologies of modernism, as well asopposition to epistemic certainty and the stability of meaning.2. How is Jamaica Kincaid's "Girl" a "bridge" between Modernism and Post-Modernism?Girl” byJamaica Kincaid (Post-Modernism) Based on our lecture in class, I view “Girl” as a Post-Modern work. Thestructure of the language used conveys dark humor from the way the girl is being called a slut to warnher from behaving like one, and this portrays post-modernism. The use of the long sentence structureand the open ending of the story are demonstrations of post-modern writings. The person speaking inthe story is also not known, and therefore there is an absence of clarity just as it is in post-modernwritings. Post-modernism uses negativity and hopelessness to captivate the readers, and we can see thatin the story, we are not told about how the girl responded to the advice that was being subjected to her.“Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid is indeed a bridge between modernism and post-modernism.3. Describe at least one way that Raymond Carver's work can be analyzed as Post-Modern-Raymond
4. Discuss how Margaret Atwood's poem, "You Fit into Me" can be seen as Post-Modern-Post
