Think of modernism and we think of experimentation and innovation, of breaking with the past and looking to the future, of wild artistic and literary movements and outrageous philosophies. Modernism set the stage for a twentieth century characterized by unprecedented change and enacted the first half of a drama we continue to play out today.
Together, we will explore the key ideas of modernism as we examine three of its major literary texts-Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway and Ernest Hemingway's In Our Time and The Sun Also Rises. We will reinforce reading, writing and analytic skills as we locate these two novels (as well as short stories, essays, and poems) in the history, geography, and culture of Europe in the 1920s and 30s. By the end of the course, students will be able to articulate the uniqueness of the modernist moment, the fruitful intersection of European and American cultures between the wars.
