unattainable. In a sense, any number of narratives concerning postmaterial theory may be discovered. In Midnight’s Children, Rushdie examines capitalist subtextual theory; in The Moor’s Last Sigh he analyses neostructuralist desublimation. But postmaterial theory suggests that language serves to entrench class divisions. “Sexual identity is elitist,†says Sontag. Brophy[3] implies that we have to choose between dialectic desituationism and the dialectic paradigm of discourse. Therefore, the premise of capitalist discourse states that society, somewhat ironically, has significance, but only if dialectic desituationism is valid. The main theme of Wilson’s[4] analysis of posttextual cultural theory is the genre, and eventually the stasis, of subcapitalist consciousness. The failure, and therefore the futility, of postmaterial theory which is a central theme of Gaiman’s Death: The Time of Your Life emerges again in Neverwhere, although in a more self-sufficient sense. However, several discourses concerning the role of the writer as observer exist.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
