It could be said that the novel by Jeanette Winterson, The Passion (1987), includes some of the major themes that characterized British fiction during the eighties. This article shows how uncertainty and ambiguity take place in the narrative, connecting the novel with the postmodern developments in fiction of the last decade. The Passion also constructs a discourse in which the reader has to choose between different interpretations, various possible readings that are left open. In this sense, the novel establishes a game where playful, ambiguous structures are present on the syntactic and the semantic level.
