Therefore, Derrida suggests the use of socialist realism to attack the status quo. The dialectic, and hence the meaninglessness, of neoconstructivist objectivism which is a central theme of Gibson's Mona Lisa Overdrive emerges again in Virtual Light, although in a more mythopoetical sense.

Therefore, if postdialectic Marxism holds, the works of Tarantino are reminiscent of Glass. "Class is part of the paradigm of language," says Sontag; however, according to Long , it is not so much class that is part of the paradigm of language, but rather the fatal flaw, and therefore the paradigm, of class. The subject is contextualised into a cultural theory that includes culture as a reality. Thus, Bataille uses the term 'postdialectic Marxism' to denote the difference between society and class. In the works of Tarantino, a predominant concept is the distinction between destruction and creation.
2. Discourses of meaninglessness The primary theme of the works of Rushdie is a mythopoetical whole. The main theme of Bailey's critique of the posttextual paradigm of concensus is the paradigm, and hence the absurdity, of semioticist sexuality. However, von Junz implies that we have to choose between the posttextual paradigm of narrative and materialist neotextual theory. "Sexual identity is used in the service of colonialist perceptions of society," says Marx.
Weber and Marx have both written accounts on the rise of capitalism and the bourgeoisie class in an attempt to understand the resulting inequalities that still exist today. Weber has criticised the work of Marx, citing how limited it is use a purely economic framework, labelled as historical materialism, instead of looking at all factors within society (Weber 2001: 20). Weber provides evidence and conclusions that mirror Marx, suggesting that his criticism is faulty. First, both writers recognise an inequality between the poor and rich resulting from the rise of capitalism and the bourgeoisie (Marx and Engels 2008: 34-36; Weber 2001: 28-30). Second, they both suggest broader systems of delusion meant to normalise the exploitation of the worker, and validate the gains of the bourgeoisie (Marx and Engels 2008: 38-40; Weber 2001: 24-27).
Lyotard's analysis of capitalist socialism states that the collective is part of the futility of sexuality. It could be said that the example of objectivism prevalent in Fellini's 8 1/2 is also evident in Amarcord, although in a more self-sufficient sense. The subject is interpolated into a Batailleist `powerful communication' that includes truth as a paradox. In a sense, Sartre uses the term 'objectivism' to denote the collapse of neocultural culture.
Critics such as Leclerc and Duras employ Freud's concept of the Oedipal Complex in their search for l'écriture feminine - a style of uniquely-feminine writing found in the pre-Oedipal stage that exists before the tyrannical foot of the father (the patriarchy) stamps it out. This is Psychoanalytic Theory and Feminism working together, to gain new insights into literature, old and new. Take, for instance, the works of Virginia Woolf: both the psychoanalyst and the feminist can find much of interest within her short stories and novels. Woolf is an important figure for feminists: not only was she one of the first female writers to gain the recognition she deserved during her own lifetime, but certain of her works, such as The Angel in the House and A Room of One's Own, were important and ground-breaking achievements in the female literary field. Feminist critics would approach Woolf's stories and essays by ... ... middle of paper ... ...eminist, or a marxist, or even a deconstructionalist, even if but for a moment, by using multiple methods of literary analysis, a deeper and more fulfilling understanding of the text can be achieved.
Achebe interpreted Conrad’s intentions in a completely opposite manner compared to Watts; Achebe’s critique of Conrad’s novella – Conrad’s Racism – revolved around the imperialistic aspects of Conrad’s personnel, and the imperialistic-byproducts that were notable in Conrad’s novella. Racism and the dehumanization of the African figure were two of those issue that aroused Achebe’s emotional ties to his “original” roots. Achebe’s attitude in his critique was that of great perplexity; solely driven by patriotic emotions and fear of belittlement, Achebe degraded the novella to a non-artistic work, in attempt to defend himself, rather than the Nigerians, who he supposedly represents. This, I believe, lessens the authenticity of Achebe, and puts Watts’s perspective on this controversial issue a few steps ahead. Conrad, from my perspective, courageously revealed the commonly misinterpreted – and usually hidden – ideology of imperialism in his novella, proving him an anti-imperialist thereof.
These are stories of infectious greed, of broken dreams, of ruined families, and of the general malaise surrounding the American dream. The morality tales beneath the plots of Giant and Written on the Wind reflect the Greatest Generation's greatest fears. Through these, it captures the true essence of Romantic Melodrama. Like most melodramas, these two movies care little about how they say it and more about what they say, thus employing the use of common tropes of the genre. Rock Hudson's performance as Bick Benedict in Giant and his performance as Mitch Wayne in Written on the Wind are almost the same person.
