The Dismemberment of Orpheus: Toward a Postmodern Literature is a 1971 work of literary theory by Arab-American theorist Ihab Hassan. It was one of the first works to use the term postmodernism in its present form (though it had been used by many others before him, Charles Olson for example, to refer to other literary trends) in his book. Hassan traces the development of what he called "literature of silence" through Marquis de Sade, Franz Kafka, Ernest Hemingway, Beckett, and many others, including developments such as the Theatre of the Absurd and the nouveau roman.
