You forgot to mention postmodernism's interetextuality, how often other works are referenced. For instance, pop culture trivia litters much of the literature.
  Out of curiosity, why does Eagleton (and others) place the date at 1969? Was there some watershed work that came out that year?

**************** I left out several critical points, the most important being the rejection of Enlightenment values and the devaluing of importance of the individual.

Eagleton and others relate the beginning of postmodernism to the end of the massive student rioting in France.
