|Title:||Signs in science : despair and emptiness.||Authors:||Tham, Tammy Samantha.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Humanities::Literature||Issue Date:||2009||Abstract:||Never Let Me Go, The Stone Gods, The Possibility Of An Island are texts that demonstrate a world created by means of the non-real. This process is best understood if we approach the texts through Jean Baudrillard’s three orders of simulacra: imitation, production and simulation. The characters experience intensified fragmentation and loss when they become aware that they live in a world of simulation. The result is a pessimistic outlook of the future.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/18893||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
