Lit, Period #7: Modernism


Fitzgerald, Hemingway, World War I, and the fragmentation of reality – it can all only mean one thing: Lit, Period is finally back with a discussion of Modernism! The merits of this literary period can be controversial in some circles. Why should we read those expatriates with their stream-of-consciousness narration and difficult texts? The CenterForLit crew sits down to discuss this question and offer their perspective on the American Alcoholics (and friends).
