Perjury as the curse of confession: Truth problem in literature from the perspective of postmodern confession
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philology
The paper deals with the problem of truth in literature from the perspective of the postmodern confession. It tries to analyse the authenticity model of truth in literature, that is, to show the problem of the honesty category in the genre that takes honesty as its basic assumption. The postmodern process of making the truth in literature relative has not bypassed sincerity as the pledge of truth in literature; therefore the attention has been given particularly to the postmodern insights into these questions. Although the theory and the literaryartistic practice in the postmodern period do not offer definite solutions, they clearly show, due to its nature, all the weaknesses of the model of truth in literature, like this one. On the other hand, what is more important here, they resist any attempt to establish the completeness of meaning and the monopoly over the truth in literature. Postmodern attitude towards the truth in the confession is viewed in relation to the theory of deconstruction by Jacques Derrida and in relation to the story Otisak srca na zidu (Heart Print on the Wall) by Borislav Pekić, from his story collection Novi Jerusalim (New Jerusalem), as well as in relation to explicit attitudes of these authors towards the truth in the genre of confession.
