Abstract

Postmodern literary authors make use of various literary modes and
techniques as a way of producing different cultural and linguistic contexts. Such devises, as
Jaroslav Kusnir (2011) lists them, include use of old forms and genres deliberately turning
to plagiarism, kitsch, false or pretended quotations from well-known literary and other texts,
intertextuality, pastiche etc. In postmodern biofictional writing the use of factual and fictional
letters in producing new meanings has a special role. By means of that, authors fictionally
install and subvert factual inputs. As a result, new forms, styles and genres are created.
