If the "modern" in Postmodern is a reference to the modernists, i.e. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Eliot, Williams, etc., then all of the writing from the 1950's until the end of the world will be "postmodern."

Carroll, Postmodern is as valid a term as Romantic, Victorian or Modernist. I specified the aspect of Postmodern writing that amplifies a tendency exhibited in The Waste Land, namely that of multiple voices. What's your problem? Diana
