Postmodernism's love of intertextuality and metafiction adds to its maximalist character. Factual retellings of war stories, the narrator says, would be unbelievable, and heroic, moral war stories don't capture the truth. A significant postmodern example is Vladimir Nabokov 's Pale Firein which the narrator, Kinbote, claims he is writing an analysis of John Shade's long poem "Pale Fire", but the narrative of the relationship between Shade and Kinbote is presented in what is ostensibly the footnotes to the poem.
