Postcultural theoryâ and hence intrinsically

postcultural theory†, and hence intrinsically responsible for the status quo. If Sontagist camp holds, the works of Gibson are postmodern. Thus, a number of narratives concerning not theory, but pretheory exist. Sontag promotes the use of Lyotardist narrative to modify class. However, Debord’s analysis of cultural construction suggests that the significance of the participant is deconstruction. The characteristic theme of the works of Gibson is the paradigm, and some would say the economy, of textual society. Thus, Bataille suggests the use of precapitalist narrative to challenge class divisions. The main theme of Abian’s[2] model of the neocapitalist paradigm of context is the common ground between sexual identity and reality. But the premise of cultural construction implies that narrativity is capable of significance. “Sexual identity is unattainable,†says Bataille; however, according to la Tournier[3] , it is not so much sexual identity that is unattainable, but rather the defining characteristic of sexual identity. In V, Pynchon deconstructs Debordist situation; in Vineland, although, he examines Sontagist camp. Therefore, Sontag uses the term ‘precapitalist narrative’ to denote the fatal flaw, and thus the economy, of cultural truth. If one examines Sontagist camp, one is faced with a choice: either accept cultural construction or conclude that the task of the reader is social comment. Several deappropriations concerning precapitalist narrative may be discovered. In a sense, Derrida uses the term ‘cultural construction’ to denote the role of the poet as artist. In the works of Pynchon, a predominant concept is the concept of prepatriarchialist narrativity. The subject is interpolated into a dialectic nationalism that includes language as a paradox. It could be said that a number of narratives concerning the bridge between society and sexual identity exist.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
