Postmodern Irony as Subversive Rhetorical Strategy.
Shugart, Helene A.
Western Journal of Communication, v63 n4 p433-55 Fall 1999
Contributes to scholarship advancing the understanding of human communication by analyzing Susan Dorothea White's painting, "The First Supper," as a subversive postmodern ironic reading of Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper." Suggests that subversive irony assumes distinctive and complex technical and theoretical characteristics, thereby creating multiple potential audiences. Concludes postmodern irony functions subversively for select audiences but hegemonically for others. (SR)
