As always with this series, the bibliography is very helpful. Do postrnodern phenomena helplessly reflect a decadent, late capitalist age?
Do they challenge it? Is the challenge effective?
Hutcheon sees the postrnodern as both partaking of and challenging our culture. The allpervasive postmodern irony both uses and interrogates all forms of representation, whether of gender, history, meaning, control, or the self.

Postrnodern texts, verbal or visual, put such representations and masternarratives in quotation marks by means of ironic appropriations that are often labelled pastiche or parody. Such interrogation invites us to ponder the signifying practices of both the original constructs and their postmodern avatars. The postrnodern is resolutely contradictory, because it works within and uses the systems it questions. It is also unaVOidably political, acutely aware of history'S textuality, and dedicated to unsettling orthodox opinions. It 'de-doxifies' our unexamined social narratives.

Hutcheon sketches useful contrasts between the postrnodern and related movements-poststructuralismand feminism in particular. Sheadmits that postrnodernism has no effective theory of agency, so it does not readily convert to political action. One of her most important arguments derives from the nature of her definition: many literary texts not generally considered postrnodern in style now qualify on grounds of their interrogation of cultural doxa.
