III. IDENTIFICATIONIdentify the Theme of 21
st
Century Literature based from the statement
17.

As contemporary readers are able to look back and see how it has been depicteddifferently for
different audiences, these have become themes in 21st century literature.Often contemporary
literature explores the notion of multiplicities of truth andacknowledges that it is filtered through
human perspective and experience.18.

Today, this is more integrated into


people’s lives than ever before. Dreams of what this
could potentially help people become and anxieties regarding the demise of humanity asa result
of this can be seen in 21st century literature.19.

In postmodern style, many contemporary writers recognize a piece of work as being oneamong
many throughout history. As such, many writers purposely includeacknowledgements,
references or parallels to other works of fiction, recognizing theirplace in a larger, broader
conversation, context and body of work. Some themes go as far
as to poke fun at a work’s own lack of originality or the clichés that it seemingly cannot
escape.20.

With increasing globalization, intersections of cultures and more vocal discussions of


women’s rights and LGBT rights, it has become a com
mon theme in 21st centuryliterature. In a world that is now able to exchange ideas more quickly
than ever before viathe Internet and other technological advancements, people have
relatively more freedomto draw from multiple cultures and philosophies and question the
concept of the self and
its relation to the body, brain and “soul.”
