Abstract
Fragmentation and parody are some of the elements of postmodern literature. The novel Snow White by Donald Barthelme projects the encounter of the fictional world with that of the real world. The author has transformed the fairy characters into human characters where the seven dwarfs get transformed into seven adults sharing their lives with Snow White. To speak plainly, Barthelme intended to reflect the recklessness of the society through his characters. The style of language is challenging through its fragmented structure slacking in coherence.
Keywords
