In analyzing the object of the study, this thesis uses Fredric Jameson’s pastiche of postmodernism. The result shows the evidences of The Selection as a postmodern literature, including the mixing genres, portrayal of consumer society, and depthlessness through the character. Besides, there are some repetition aspects which The Selection imitates from Cinderella’s story. They are the festival or competition of girls winning prince’s heart, female character as main character, and the story sets in monarch system. This research also shows some deviation elements of The Selection by increasing the idea of the story such as different personality of both main characters, the reality television show, war theme, fashion element, and the last is changing the form from short story to the novel.
