Non-Literary Items in Literary Texts: Why contemporary authors are changing the standard form of literature

Blake, Danielle J.

This paper analyzes the use of non-literary elements (pictures, erasure method, and jumbled word formatting) in three texts. It argues that the intention of using unconventional writing styles is a method of responding to modern politics and warfare. The paper explores how non-literary elements capture abstract contemporary concepts.
