The world is changing at accelerated pace. It becomes more and more like a giant stage with numerous postmodern screenplays flashing tremendously before our eyes.
You do not share this view? This is just a short reminder of the recent news:
Geneva, 10 September 2008. The first beam in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN was successfully steered around the full 27 kilometers of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator at 10h28 this morning.
A European court says the idea a new supercollider project could create a “celestial vacuum” (nice name for the black hole) and eventually consume the Earth is worth discussing, but the project can move forward on schedule anyway.
We wake up each morning to a cheep 70’s SF movie. Just a mirror reflections of the “state of the art” in human evolution. You have to admit it. We split the atom, the center of everything, and in so doing we created chaos.
The Contemporary Poets reflect this chaos. Postmodern literature does the same thing. Pick out the fragments. Out of the chaos, the modernists and the postmodernists pull fragments of life around them. They then leave it to the reader to put these fragments back together.
But do not let yourself think in traditional ways when addressing Modern and Postmodern literature questions. You have to be open to the experience and it will make sense!

Are these just a signs of new artistic tendencies or a definitive literature response to literature questions of a new, altered reality?
It is more and more difficult to make today’s media-savvy new generations to acquire a taste in reading classic literature, given the powerful influence of movies, the Internet, and mentioned circumstances.
You can blog, phlog, vlog and podcast, all for free, and get ready, appreciative readers too. You can write and publish your own books (e-books) at a fraction of the cost of a printed book. You may say this is a bright side of life lyrics. Everybody can be a writer and writing doesn’t look formidable anymore.
There are opinions that chatting on the Internet or messaging frequently over the mobile phones impair our children language skills.
Communication and language skills have actually improved with the arrival of the Internet. Basically as we chat more, be it through the net or email or mobile, so we write more, express more and somewhere the communication skills improve and fear…
