A POETIC RENAISSANCE

IN THE MODERNIST ERA

three eras schools of thought
THREE ERAS/schools OF THOUGHT

Remember what we know about Modernism:

  • Happens 1900-1950
    • World War I and World War II
  • Reaction to dehumanizing trends in America: anonymity, loss of individual, reject traditional ways of seeing things
  • Modernists were experimenting with new forms/new ideas but they hadn’t discarded meaning yet: they were trying to create MEANING through the reorganization of knowledge
first school of thought
First school of thought
  • Saw the increasing dehumanization
  • They rebelled against taboos: experimentation
  • They hungered for spiritual enlightenment
  • They had a renewed sense of responsibility for fellow humans
  • They wanted to affirm human dignity in the face of dehumanizing trends
  • They wanted to change things! Point out flaws and work toward change.
second school of thought
Second school of thought
  • Began to focus more on ideas and order
  • Increased emphasis on moving away from personal poetry: instead, these poets sought to use poetry to make an intellectual statement about the world
  • Sought to discover the true meaning of objects and ideas
  • Poems could still be personal, but they required the reader to make a connection to something larger/outside their personal experience
third school of thought
THIRD school of thought
  • Poets are more affected by social change and cultural challenge
  • Affected by the history of the time period: World War I, Roaring Twenties, Stock Market Crash, Harlem Renaissance, governmental issues (Marxist and totalitarian, World War II
  • Poets asked questions about how to live in the new world created by modern difficulties
  • Dealt with questions of how to see the world, how to be moral, how to deal with problems of the time
    • Some poets began to fade into Postmodernism at the end: there might be no meaning at all!
schools of thought
SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT
  • These are not hard and fast time periods
  • Instead, these three schools of thought blend/bleed into each other.
  • But they do bring different tones to their poetry and so we can make some delineation, especially when we see how history affects people’s view of literature
