There's most definitely a relationship between literary realism and postmodernism. However, it is one that is far more difficult than previously researched. The goal of this BA thesis was to examine how literary realism was specifically represented by and in postmodernism. Looking at how the key characteristics of Flaubertian realism are represented in the way postmodernist literary works want to reach their goals. Julian Barnes's "Flaubert's Parrot" has been used as a case study for this exploration.
