Presenting the principles articulated in chaos theory as rewarding methods for examining literature, this volume examines the shift from modernism to postmodernism, dating the transition to the bombing of Hiroshima. The text also seeks to redefine anterior definitions of chaos and functions as an introduction to the fundamental tenets of choas theory. The final section of the book deploys chaos theory as a critical approach in its examination of Vonnegut scholarship: how a body of fiction that repeatedly focuses upon death camps, unjust prosecutions, vicious and elitist ideological practices, war, greed, futility, and failure can remain affirmative.
