Anti Narrative in Modern Literature

Anti Narrative in Modern Literature

Story telling has been there since time immemorial. Modernism in literature has affected story telling through the introduction of new sequences, forms, and shapes that alter the cultural confrontations laid by the ancestors. At the beginning of the 20th century, disposable stories rose, famously known as the “classic realist text” CRT. Oral narrative is slowly losing its root and getting replaced by visual art, theatre, music among others. Storytelling strangely broke the audience’s fourth wall.In the realm of post-world war 2, the questioning of whose opinions was being outplayed in the story arose. All points of view glorified in a narrative were considered avant. The movement from avant-grade to the out-there that examines cultures under all mainstreams took the course. The wild radical art and stories got incorporated into the modern mainstream using music video and the early avant grade film. Now, the meditation of grassy ideas has been transformed into a philosophical mode cultivated by epistemology without any reasonable doubt (Tumakin, Maria “This Narrated Life”).

Understanding Contemporary Story

The simplicity or complexity of a contemporary story has got renewed into a realistic text. The story consuming practice has attracted most people, who have shifted their preference to the modern style of accessing narrative over the journals, newspapers, and TVs. The recent stories are highly layered by a large art transition, and this captures a broader audience (Lopate 2013).

In Ray Devitt Maxim re “art” and “popular,” the two shticks are discussed to show the anti-narrative approach by characters. The art shtick makes a narrators audience wonder why the story contests them while the famous shtick makes the audience understand why the story suits them. In conclusion, finishing a story requires a case by case approach on the subject narrated by the narrator (Lopate 2013).
