In this paper, the storyline of "White Noise" is analyzed and the question is asked - how much of the truth needs to be exposed in certain situations. The story is of a professor of Nazi studies and the way that he twists the truth of his studies to have better dramatic exposure. The moralities of this situation are discussed.

From the Paper:

"We can thus see in this novel a living demonstration both of the stylistic considerations of postmodernism and deconstruction as well as of the deeper, more philosophical definitions of these movements. For Gladney defines for us a postmodern world in which language refers only to itself rather than to an “real” reality that exists beyond the margins of the text. In Gladney’s postmodern world, there can easily exist multiple and even conflicting interpretations of a text. The best interpretation here is never the truest but rather the one that sells the best."
