It's that time again.

How do modernist writers engage with early twentieth-century modernization and its effects?

0/2500 at the moment, but have a lot of it written in note form on paper.

Storm of Steel (to which I recommend reading if WWI interests you).

Howards End (pap book).

They use pencils and pens instead of slates and quills, the effects are obvious, d'uh.

due to the lightweight tools with which scribes are now able to "pen" their works, their upper body strength diminishes, removing the perceptions that writers are in fact knuckle dragging freaks.

Instead those with an artistic flair, now flaunt their reduced upper bodys with such frivolity that one could assume they are merely homosexual. However, this question of gender preferences certain attracts the female member of the species in rather copious numbers.

The lotharios amongst the writers guild turn their attentions to poetry to woo said strumpets, the net result being large poetry parties with one man and many ladies.

The overall effects of these poet parties is that one man gets paid and impregnates many women with his wit, his humour and his bell-end. F*ckin Win I say.

To summarise the modernisation of writers is that plenty more journo's are getting their ends away, while the rest of us just daydeam.

BAM 219 Words Introduction. Fear my waffle.

The world has never changed as drastically as it did at the turn of the Twentieth-Century. Every component of mankind’s existence underwent a technological and cultural change. Mobility became personal; women began to forge equality; war was waged to an earth shattering standard and the world’s scale diminished through new means of communication. This modernization spread to literature and resulted in the aesthetic response known as Modernism. E.M Forster and Ernst Jünger can be considered two modernist writers who fully engaged with the effects of modernization. Howards End deals with two important factors. The first is a basic commentary concerning the effects of technology. The second is examination of the cultural shift that was brought about by the above. I will then combine the two to show the struggle that E.M Forster had with finding any positive effects of modernization. Jünger’s work, Storm of Steel is far more reactionary. He provides readers with a stark outlook at the culmination of modernization: severed limbs, bodily destruction / reproduction and the obliteration of existence through technological means.

Before we can assess Forster and Jünger’s texts, it is extremely important that the theoretical is dealt with. The basics of modernization are mentioned above, but a critical response is more effective.

Hehe, as soon as I get to the comparison part, Juxtaposition will be flying everywhere.

I swore it was Modernisation, but I'm going by the question title.

Saying that, I think the historical event is known as modernization, not the process.

Re: It's that time again.

A Return To Folk/Oral Culture Is Often Central To Postcolonial Performance; Examine This Dynamic As It Is Played Out In Some Plays Studied.

‘Postcolonial Drama’ is one of the most complex ideas within literature. Performance, language and content combine to produce a postcolonial identity. Even when we have arrived at a distinguishable version of individuality, it only requires a change of setting, playwright or dialect for the identity to alter. Even so, with that fact in mind we must be careful not to dismiss postcolonial drama as an unrelated collection of plays. There are a variety of themes than run throughout the school of thought. The most obvious method of representation is the utilisation of folklore with ‘oral culture’ intrinsically linked as the representative technique.

I believe there to be three playwrights that successfully capture folklore as a manner of representing postcolonial identity. I will be examining works by W.B. Yeats, J.M. Synge and Derek Walcott in an effort to legitimise a coherent postcolonial performance. Both Yeats and Synge provide their audiences with plays that centre on national identity. The Abbey unquestionably centres their intentions on a search for what it means to be Irish. Walcott presents us with the same exploitation of folklore, but for a different purpose. While there are nationalistic objectives, he also attempts to create a unique postcolonial cultural identity. Through the analysis of these dramatists, I hope for a sense of clarity to form; one that shows the importance of folklore and oral culture for performing a postcolonial identity.

Re: It's that time again.

******* Ace. That final one (the postcolonial drama essay) I got a 70. That's a first. That's the best mark I've ever had (62 - a 2.1 scraped is the previous record) and I'm chuffed as this is the important year.

Things are (hopefully) finally clicking into place.

Re: It's that time again.

When Allen Ginsberg first revealed Howl to his audience, America was awash with post-war consumerism, Cold War paranoia and a population that was conforming to the American Dream. Howl quickly became the national anthem for the Beat Generation, successfully capturing the hearts of a cohort that refused to accept the encroaching Capitalism of 1950’s America. The Beat movement, (with Howl leading the charge), effectively rewrote history’s perception of what post-war America stood for. Howl’s social issues result in a re-examination, a counter-cultural exploration, of the reality of 1950/60’s America.

Only 1000 words.
