1965- Present Post Modern By: Megan williams

The aftermath of World War 2, the Vietnam War, Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination, Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, the Detroit race riot, and Watergate were political and historical events that influenced post modern literature.

Art in the post modern era are mostly intermedia, installation, conceptual, and multimedia. Music is mostly about love and sadness.

Major genres include historical fiction, romance, sci-fi, and horror. Minimalism, faction, pastiche, metafiction, and reader involvement are prominent styles of writing.

Significant Authors and their works are Margaret Atwood: The Handmaids Tale, Bret Easton Ellis: American Psycho, Don DeLillo: White Noise, Douglas Adams: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and S.E. Hinton: The Outsiders.

Notable Quotes from Notable Books:

"But who can remember pain once its over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind." Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale.

"Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold." S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders
