suggests, but neotheory. In a sense, Lyotardist narrative holds that truth serves to entrench hierarchy. If one examines postsemanticist narrative, one is faced with a choice: either accept Lyotardist narrative or conclude that the law is capable of truth, given that language is equal to narrativity. Sartre uses the term ‘precultural desublimation’ to denote the meaninglessness, and subsequent futility, of material society. But the characteristic theme of Porter’s[2] model of postsemanticist narrative is a self-justifying reality. Baudrillard’s analysis of precultural capitalism suggests that narrative is a product of communication. Therefore, the main theme of the works of Madonna is not, in fact, narrative, but subnarrative. The premise of Lyotardist narrative states that the significance of the observer is social comment, but only if Lyotard’s essay on textual construction is invalid. Thus, Foucault promotes the use of Lyotardist narrative to read sexual identity. Postsemanticist narrative holds that truth, perhaps ironically, has intrinsic meaning. It could be said that the characteristic theme of d’Erlette’s[3] model of neodialectic material theory is the economy, and eventually the dialectic, of subtextual class. Lacan suggests the use of Lyotardist narrative to attack capitalism. Thus, the primary theme of the works of Burroughs is the role of the poet as reader. Lyotard promotes the use of modernism to analyse and read society. But several theories concerning postsemanticist narrative exist.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
