Abstract
The author in this paper elaborates the postmodern view of the consumer society using Mark Ravenhill's play Shopping and Fucking as a representative text. The play depicts modern environment under the influences of consumerism and capitalism. The paper analyses the features of the modern sociey, such as an excessive consumption, materialism, exploatation of the human body, loss of protection and identity, explaining the causes and consequences of the arrival of consumerism. It also analyses the problem of prototypical human relationships. Ravenhill's perception of the contemporary world and a perception of the other authors, primarily of Zygmunt Bauman and Jean Baudrillard, are explained as well.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Autor u radu obrazlaže postmoderno viđenje konzumerističkog društva služeći se dramom Marka Ravenhilla Shopping and Fucking kao reprezentativnim tekstom. Drama oslikava suvremeno okruženje pod utjecajem konzumerizma i kapitalizma. Rad analizira osobine modernog deuštva kao što su: pretjerana potrošnja, materijalizam, iskorištavanje ljudskog tijela, gubitak zaštite i identiteta, objašnjavajući uzroke i posljedice pojave konzumerizma. Također analizira problematiku ljudskih odnosa. Ravenhillova percepcije modernog svijeta i percepcija drugih autora, ponajprije Zygmunta Baumana i Jeana Baudrillarda, također su objašnjene.
