Abstract

This Article proposes an analysis of Alex Flinn’s A Kiss in Time using postmodern perspective. Through postmodern perspective, this text discusses the postmodern strategies used to present the ontological dominant in A Kiss in Time. Brian McHale’s postmodern perspective is used as the theoretical framework to find the ontological dominant in A Kiss in Time by analyzing the construction and the confrontation of worlds in A Kiss in Time. Furthermore, by projecting Kingdom of Euphrasia becoming Royal Euphrasia, a thematic park, A Kiss in Time presents the postmodern culture of hyperreality.
