Im sorry I cant get accents to work :(

Comment pourrait on traduire la phrase etre un lettre postmodern

Would it be like saying that someone is a postmodern specialist or expert?

Thank you

    Hello Nose,

    First of all, do you want to translate "être un lettré post-moderne" (it could not be postmodern which is an english word) ?
    So "être un lettré" is to be cutlivated or knowledgeable and no a specialist and in your sentence it(s applied to the specific postmodern period of litterature.

    Ok, so the phrase is

    L'homme est un lettré postmoderne.

    The man is a knowledgeable postmodernist?

    Im really still not sure about this. Any ideas?
