Week 4 Forum: Modernism
Part I: Identify three symbols in the readings from this week and discuss what you think those symbols mean in the context of the story or poem in which they are found.
Part II: Based on Hemingway and TS Eliot, what are your impressions of the "Modern Man"?
Part III: Share a web-based resource that you located that gave you more information about one of our readings this week, about Modernism, about WWI or about a specific author we covered. It could be a video or a website with text.
Explain how the source contributed to your understanding. Is it the kind of source you could use in a literary essay, or is it better for 'preliminary research' and overall understanding, but not appropriate for academic use? Why?
In your initial response to parts I, II and III, you must discuss a minimum of four distinct authors

In the previous weeks’ lessons you may have noticed how the events of the world strongly influenced and shaped the ways in which authors crafted their pieces. Similarly, in this lesson, you’ll notice how the writing of the Modernist era is often linked to World War I (1914-1918). Indeed, several prominent Modernist writers were WWI veterans.
We will take a closer look at some of these Modernist writers, including E.E. Cummings, T.S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck and Ernest Hemingway.
We will also explore the New Criticism movement.
