Postmodernitatea și proiecția ontologică
The postmodern mixure of all kinds of contrasting forms is caused by the constant use of irony, parody, intertext, all joined together in textual spaces that are eclectic with regard to their genre. They become game strategies by means of which the text and the world, although once opposing, get together. This process is determined, as Mircea Cărtărescu considers, by the „constructive principle” of postmodern irony which has lost its function as an offensive ideological weapon. Combining the detail, the insignificant and the marginal with the perspectival opening towards wholeness within the dialogic texture, the postmodern authorial ego structures itself out of complementary heteromorphic facets, being simultaneously social, biographic, moral, ontologic and reader-oriented (Cristian Popescu). Caught in the game-like textual reality, but being conscious of its immanence and artificiality, the postmodern writer hyperlucidly filters discontinuity in order to grasp a meaning of the universal inconstancy.
