Why isn't Fight Club Po-Mo?
>>
>>7587904
it is, pseudo-elitists-plebs just hate because it has a plot
>>
pomo and terms of that ilk are fluid
fight club has a lot of characteristics of the postmodern movement, you wanna call it 'pomo' you can, but dig this man it's fucking terrible and palahnuik is shit, right? - so generally speaking when people say 'postmodernist' and want to conjure up the group of 60s 70s innovators they're not meaning palahnuik and they'll be annoyed with someone haplessly shoving him in with those who tend to define the term

>>7587920
>palahnuik is shit
but, no... are you one of the guys getting upset over an arbitrary term?

Fight Club is not Po-Mo, its male-oriented cathartic YA-fiction
>>
>>7587920
>60s 70s
>pomo

nice try
>>
>>7587909

postmodern novels can't have plots? what?
>>
>>7587937
Are you baiting or?
/lit/ has become so strange
>>
>>7587937
m8... modernism doesn't end when postmodernism starts.

See:
V. - Pynchon (1963)
The Cannibal - Hawkes (1949)

You seem to be a bit of a pleb tbqh
>>
>>7588001
how is the cannibal postmodern?
on second thought .. i dont actually care, just suprised you consider it that
>>
>>7588014
>I consider it that
>implying this is a thought unique to me
>John Hawkes

Plebs Exxxposed
>>
>>7587950
I think you missed the point, anon.
>>
>>7587927
This term is meant to trigger people who like Fight Club, but isn't that label technically very spot on?

Its anti-capitalist and modern revolution themes are pretty cathartic even if they kind of put the novel outside of even widely defined YA

But even then... Can't a cathartic modern-male-oriented fiction be PoMo?
