Postmodernism is a contradictory phenomenon that has changed the very concepts regarding architecture, literature, painting, sculpture, philosophy, linguistics and so on. It dismantles and deconstructs the traditional notions about language, identity and etc. The present research is a qualitative content analysis which tries to figure out how language in the text of the novel ‘The English Patient’ is manipulated to convey the idea of disseminated identities of different characters through mini-narratives, intertextuality and rapid narrative shifts thus, gives the post-modernist view of the novel ‘The English Patient’.
