Abstract:
This thesis seeks to discuss and analyse the taxonomy of post-apocalyptic fiction in the 20th and 21st century, while at the same time detail why the subgenre is distinctive and attractive for writers. The thesis delves into both the cultural and historical backgrounds of both the novels discussed and the authors, to give each taxonomic category a factual base and context. The overall end result of this thesis is an evolutionary survey of the post-apocalyptic subgenre of both form and content.
