Question:

What were the main factors that differentiated modern from postmodern literature?

Russell S.

Rather, modern literature focused on the intricacies of daily life -- such as James Joyce's Ulysses, narrating a single day in Dublin. Postmodern literature was less structured, often following multiple subplots with seemingly little connection to one another.
