290B: Tps:First World War and Modernist Culture
It is often said that the First World War -- the first industrialized war -- changed everything, brought an end to 19th century culture and politics, and ushered in the Modern era. An entire generation experienced the horrors of the trenches, endless artillery bombardments, and poison gas, only to return home to a world they no longer recognized, and that no longer understood them. The painters, poets, novelists, and movie makers among them did their best to convey their experiences of war and combat through their art forms -- and in the process, contributed to the creation of modernist art and literature. This course will examine the experience of the war through art and literature.
