Die Elementarteilchen der Liebe in den Geschichten des Begehrens: Postmoderne Thematisierungen des Eros
University of Gävle, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Ämnesavdelningen för moderna språk.
2004 (English)In: LiLi: Zeitschrift für Literaturwissenschaft und Linguistik, ISSN 0049-8653, Vol. 34, p. 110-136Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Abstract [en]

The article shows how postmodern literature offers new ways of re-thinking and re-reading Eros, how it responds to the changing mentalities and social morals and how it provides insight into the social-cultural paradigms, with which it enters a mutual relation of dialogue, contestation and parody. The ethics and aesthetics of Eros, that is, the literary representation of love, desire and sexuality, has dramatically changed during the last decades due to the influence of postmodern theories and the explosion of sexual discoursees in the public sphere. As a result, postmodern literature challenges the ethics of sexual identities and differences, interrogates stereotypes and conventions and heightens our critical awareness of them. It extends the modes of femininity and gender identities, and ultimately broadens our view of love, desire and sexuality.
